Ozark Mountain Berry Pie Recipe

I think the best berries in the world are grown in the Ozarks. We own a small berry farm, and this is one of my favorite recipes. It's delicious served warm. —Elaine Moody, Clever, Missouri

"I always use Minute Tapicoca making this and other fruit pies. Makes a lot better fruit pies!"

"I've made this a couple times using fresh berries, always delicious! I see some people have used frozen berries with success. Do you defrost the berries first or add them to the blueberry mixture still frozen?"

"I made this pie last night for my husband and grandkids. It came out perfect and everyone devoured it. I used fresh berries, followed the recipe as written and it set up perfectly. I will definitely make another, as there were NO leftovers. Awesome flavor and texture. Thanks so much for this delicious recipe."

"This is a similar recipe to my "South Mountain Berry Pie" - it uses the same variety and amounts of berries. I have entered the pie several times in our local fair and have won champion on it each time. It is delicious!"

"Delicious - I was using frozen mixed berries so I didn't cook the blueberries down but it still turned out excellent. Great flavor and it set well, nothing more annoying than a runny berry pie ;)"

"I doubled this filling for my deep dish pie plate. I also added an extra 1/4 C sugar and only 1T lemon juice. This was a great pie with vanilla ice cream. Wouldn't change a thing. Sometimes blackberries are not very sweet even though we live in berry country (Oregon) so I always add a little more sugar. Great!"

"Very good recipe and versatile. I used this recipe twice. I made a one-crust pie, and topped with a crumb crust. The second time, I made as a berry crisp to save time. I put the filling in a dish and covered with a crumb topping. I served with ice cream and everyone loved it."
