"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!"

"Thanks, Elaine Moody. I love it. I used frozen berries so I added a little more corn starch and a little more sugar. I was afraid of the oven temp of 300 but it brown beautifully."
