Frozen Berry Pie

This recipe makes two attractive pies using store-bought chocolate crumb crust. I work full-time, so I like the fact that this yummy pie can be made ahead. I serve each slice with a dollop of whipped cream, a strawberry and chocolate curls.

Editor's Note
Chocolate crumb crust (9 inches): Combine 1-1/2 cups finely crushed chocolate wafers (about 30 wafers) and 1/3 cup melted butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 350 until set, 6-8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before filling.

    I have made this pie two different times. The first time I froze it, and got okay reviews. The second time I just put the pie in the refrigerator - and then I got rave reviews. I would reccomend that when you make the pie you do not freeze it, just put it in the refrigerator. Also when I make it, I do one pie with strawberries and a chocolate crust, and the other with blueberries and a shortbread crust.

    Loved it! I made my own crust and made into squares instead of a pie. I also left out the pecans and it turned out yummy. I liked how you can make ahead of time and put in the freezer until you need it.

    A lovely, fresh-tasting pie that is served frozen so it's great to have on hand for company. Everyone loved it and some had seconds. I left out the pecans. I spun the berries in my food processor because the chopping was getting tedious and it worked out just fine. I would think you could substitute blueberries or peaches and probably lots of other yummy fruits for the strawberries.

    people have always loved this pie when I've served it. I also gave the recipe to a cater for a ladies banquet. tip use fresh strawberries not frozen; for a creamy instead of a frozen slush like pie filling.
