Ozark Mountain Berry Pie
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling
Wow! This pie . . . Absolutely heavenly. Used less sugar but not by much and didn't dot with butter - still delicious. I loved it so much I shared it with friends. My crust came out delicious as always. I used the recipe from the best apple pie recipe.
Hubby loved this. I used more fresh blackberries and raspberries, fewer blueberries and fewer strawberries, because that's what I had on hand. Next time, I'd use a bit more cornstarch.
This was a huge winner in my family! I did not have fresh berries and was nervous about using frozen after reading some of the reviews. Honestly I was craving a cobbler but decided to make this with frozen berries I had picked up at Sams (blue, black and raspberry). So glad I did! I reduced the water just a bit because I thought the frozen berries would create more water than using fresh berries. I used 3 3/4 cups frozen mixed berries and just hand picked a few of the blueberries to boil in the liquid. Just used a tad cinnamon (personal preference) and used Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts. It couldn’t have been any better. Put this one in my favorites! A scoop of vanilla and it was perfect. Mine did not turn out runny...held it’s shape after cooling completely. Thanks for a keeper!
I've been baking pies for forty years and this is the best recipe I've ever come across. It is requested by friends and family for every gathering. My one alteration is to use maybe an eighth of a cup of cornstarch instead of a fourth--it makes for a messy pie, but so much juicier and less jelly-like. (I'm sure there's a happy medium--I just haven't found it yet!). Also, I once found myself with no strawberries or raspberries, so I threw in some fresh peaches. Stone fruits and berries are always a good mix. Note: fresh berries can be expensive, but I've tried making this recipe with frozen and they just aren't the same. If you're going to go to the trouble of making a pie, and if you can afford it, get fresh berries.
I first found this recipe in the ‘How to cook almost anything” and had never baked a berry pie. If was fantastic. Turns out every time and my family loves it.

made this and it is very good love it
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.
