So my Mom in law is the real MVP of pie making, but I was craving a berry pie of which she does not make. So I thought I’d give my pie making skills a refresher course. I am certainly not known for my baking skills and I’m ok with that. My pie is not the prettiest here, but I will say this… it sure turned out pretty darn delish!
Here is the berry filling recipe I used. The only change I made… I cut back on the sugar by 1/2 cup. I thought a whole cup was just way too much for my taste buds, you might like a sweeter filling though so stick with the whole cup. When I topped a slice (or two ;)) of this pie with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream, the bit of tang (in the filling) to sweet ratio with the ice cream was just right, at least for my husband and myself. All other steps I did the same.
Here’s the pie crust recipe I used. https://pin.it/2oadgxe6ts5w7t
She ain’t that pretty but she’s all mine!
This endeavor was definitely worth the effort!
Top your slice with a dollop or two of vanilla ice cream and you’ll be in dessert heaven.
p.s. Don’t skip the egg wash and sugar sprinkle, these 2 steps make for a very pretty crust finish.
