Introduction: Quick and Easy Berry Pie

Quick and Easy Berry Pie
2 pints blueberries
6-8 strawberries (you can substitute more strawberries if you leave out some blueberries)
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 frozen pie crust or make pie dough


Step 1:

Blind bake the pie crust using beans or pie weights for 10-12 minutes, until it’s completely cooked. Let cool.

Step 2:

Combine half the blueberries, the strawberries, sugar, honey, cornstarch, water, salt, and cinnamon in a saucepan and cook for 5-6 minutes. It should thicken up and become jam-like. Add butter, vanilla, and lemon juice and zest. Stir to combine and melt the butter.

Step 3:

Refrigerate the mixture until it starts to gel, about 1 hour. Pour into cooled pie shell and spread out. Spread remaining blueberries over the top. You can sift some powdered sugar on it, but that’s optional.
