My tastes were all over the place this week! Little Miss Celebration’s Carrot Walnut Bread caught my eye, and I was all over Farmhouse 40’s Potato Cakes! Both are on my list to try in the coming days.

But it was Grandparent’s plus’ Berry Pie that caught my heart. Berry pie always reminds me of my mother, so this was a no-brainer pick for me. Before she passed away, she lived quite far away – the other side of the country. She visited often, and when she would come to visit she would make a berry pie for us every single day. It’s one of my most treasured memories of her. 

As a result, I’ve had more than my fair share of berry pie, but what was different about this pie, was the cookie crust. 

I’ve never met an easier pie crust in all my years of baking! It came together all in the pie plate in about two minutes, and it did compliment the pie perfectly. 

I was out of vegetable oil, so I substituted melted coconut butter for the oil in the crust. Other than that I followed the recipe to a “T.”

The recipe is for either a strawberry or blueberry pie, but I prefer the taste of combined berries – raspberries, blueberries and strawberries – in a strawberry glaze, so that’s what I went with. I bet it would be equally good with a blueberry glaze!  

The glaze came together quickly – I combined the lemon juice and cornstarch then mixed it all together and used the microwave to thicken it. I put it in for about 3-4 minutes. Once the glaze thickened, I puréed it to ensure that it was smooth, before combining the fresh berries and filling the pie crust. 

We – as in everyone in my family – loved this dessert! I found it had just enough sugar and wasn’t overly sweet. It may have been better than my mom’s recipe, and it’s awfully pretty to look at! This one is going into my recipe box!

    Kim, this looks amazing! I love hearing stories of your mom :). I can't believe you made that crust so easily. I Never make my own pie crust, but I might actually try this one. The pics are beautiful!
