Three Berry Pie


It didn't turn out as pretty as I'd hoped but it was yummy. Here's how I made it:

Pie Crust:

3 cups of flour
3 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1 cup of white sugar
2 sticks of butter



I sprayed nonstick oil on the pie pan and then sprinkled flour over the oil. Then I mixed the ingredients together, rolled out half the dough and placed it in the pan. I baked the bottom pie crust for about fifteen to twenty minutes at 350 degrees.

Filling:

Four pints of mixed berries: blueberries, marionberries and raspberries.
1 and 1/2 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
1 package of nonflavored gelatin

I boiled the berries, water and sugar together. I added in the gelatin and boiled for approximately 5 minutes.

I put the berry mixture in the refrigerator to chill (while I baked the bottom pie crust). Then I filled the pie and put another layer of pie dough on the top and baked it for approximately 1/2 hour - or until the crust was golden brown. I slide a cookie sheet beneath the pie pan to catch any run off.

It was yummy!

YUM! Berry pies are my favorite. Huckleberry pie is the big one in Montana, but my absolute fave is boysenberry from Knott's Berry Farm in California. That is to die for! Your pie looks awesome!

Sounds great. Raspberries are my favorite. I've never heard of marionberries.
