A perfectly tender & flaky homemade pie crust filled with a sweet and gooey strawberry and blueberry filling.
With Summer in full swing around here, the berries are just perfect. A few days ago, I taught you how to create the perfect, most deliciously tender and flaky pie crust and today I’m here with a recipe to fill it up! Are you a fan of making pies? I’ve always been a big fan of making them because the result is so rewarding and beautiful! Nerd, much? Probably. There’s just something about a golden buttery, flaky crust filled with a sweet, gooey berry filling.
Alright, let’s get into it. The ingredients are pretty simple: blueberries, strawberries, lemon juice, cornstarch, sugar and a touch of cinnamon. You can substitute either berry for your favorite, those are what I chose to use because they’re my fave and together they’re even better. You can use a store-bought pie crust but I reaaalllllyyyy urge you to at least give my crust a try! It comes together in minutes with a few simple ingredients you most likely have on hand. It’s awesome.
The flavor of this pie is wonderful. The filling is sweet but not overly sweet and just bursting with juice berries in every bite! Top this pie with some vanilla ice cream and you have one memorable dessert! I mean, isn’t that the only way to eat a slice of pie anyway?
