We are definitely berry addicts in our house and this quick, easy and healthy pie will satisfy your sweet craving! Even better, most kids will eat it!
I use store bought pie crust from the frozen section to cut down on time but you can totally use a basic pie crust recipe to create your own. The great thing is you can swap out and do whatever mixture of berries your family is into. Below is a list of everything you need!
(2) Frozen ready to back pie crusts
(1) Small packages of organic strawberries
(1) Package of organic blueberries
1/4 Cup of sugar
2 tbsp of all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 375F. Clean and cut berries and put them into a bowl, (you can combine them or keep them separately). In a seperate small bowl, mix together dry ingredients, sugar and flour. Squeeze juice of one lemon onto berries, then pour in dry ingredients and mix together. Pour berries into the pie crust (be careful to make the berries level with the crust so the juices don’t overflow when they bake). Take the second pie crust out of the pan and you use a rolling pin to quickly flatten it out. You can make my flag pie version by cutting strips and stars out of the pie dough. Or use the entire pie crust to top the pie and then trim any excess over the edges. If you use the entire crust make sure to cut some openings in the top to help it vent while cooking. In a separate bowl beat the egg and then brush onto the crust to give it that nice golden brown cover. Cook for 20-25 minutes (keep an eye on the crust).
I then let it sit until room temperature and either serve with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
