Ozark Mountain Berry Pie

I think the best berries in the world are grown in the Ozarks. We own a small berry farm, and this is one of my favorite recipes. It's delicious served warm. —Elaine Moody, Clever, Missouri

    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup halved fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 3/4 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Dough for double-crust pie
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Directions

  • In a large saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, salt and if desired, cinnamon. And water and stir until smooth; add blueberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly. Gently fold strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and lemon juice into the blueberry mixture.
  • Preheat oven to 400°. On a lightly floured surface, roll one half of dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim even with rim. Add berry mixture; dot with butter. Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; cut into 1/2-in.-wide strips. Arrange over filling in a lattice pattern. Trim and seal strips to edge of bottom pastry; flute edge.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 350°; bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 45-50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.
Editor's Note
Combine 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 tsp. salt; cut in 1 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 1/3 to 2/3 cup ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
