Three-Berry Pie with Crumb Topping Recipe

I first made this pie for my family because I didn't have enough of one kind of berry. Now, I bring several of these pies to bake sales...they're often purchased before I can even get them to the sale table!

"Fantastic recipe. I used frozen berries (Triple Berry Mix sold at Sams Club). I made a few adjustments, though perhaps not necessary. I used a total of 5 generous cups of slightly thawed frozen berries, I added 1 Tbsp. corn starch. I used my standard crumb topping (1 cup flour, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 stick of butter). The pie was gobbled up with rave reviews at a potluck."

"Elderberry pie recipes are hard to find. This is the closest so far. But first I have to find some frozen elderberries which are equally hard to find. Is the tapioca meant to be used as a thickening agent?? If so, how about using corn starch??"
