This recipe came from my mother, and it's just as refreshing when made with peaches or blueberries.—Michelle Isenhoff, Wayland, Michigan

"Loved it! Wanted to make an easy pie while recuperating from hand surgery. It was so easy and SO delicious. It was great with "grocery store" berries, am eagerly waiting for local, fresh berries. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Will also give it a try with peaches."

"This is one of the easiest pies to make. I used a graham cracker crust, just because I thought it wouldn't get as soggy. I made it three times in the past week for different family members, they all asked when are you making that for us again? It tastes wonderful, and fresh berries make it great!"

"This recipe's a keeper for sure. Sometimes a variation that I add is to spread 3 oz. of softened cream cheese on the bottom of the baked pie shell before filling with the berries."
