With the first day of summer fastly approaching, every day I start to feel more and more patriotic. Is it just me? For some reason summer just has me bursting at the seams to make cute desserts and decorate in a patriotic theme!

So, I thought what better to ring in the season than with a classic American dessert; apple pie! Err… but that doesn’t look so festive does it? So instead I made these ah-mazing mixed berry pie in USA colors! Blueberry and raspberries to be exact!

To make it extra easy, I used a pre-made refrigerated pie crust (yes… even I use those.) and threw this baby together super quick! You of course, can use whatever berries you like!

Ingredients

Blueberry Filling

  • 2 Cups fresh blueberries

  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • dash of salt

Raspberry filling

  • 4 Cups fresh raspberries
  • 3/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3 Tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoon butter
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • dash of salt
  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts or crust of your choice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees if using refrigerated pie crust. Bake off crust that has been placed in a pie plate and pricked all over with a fork for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on wired rack and set aside.

Blueberry Filling

  • Place the sugar, cornstarch, water and salt in a pot over medium heat. Whisk until smooth. Add in 2/3 of the blueberries and toss to coat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once it comes to a slow boil, stir constantly until thickened. Take off the heat, add in the butter, lemon juice and remaining berries, stir to combine. Let cool and set aside.

Raspberry Filling

  • Place the sugar, cornstarch, water and salt in a pot over medium heat. Whisk until smooth. Add in 2/3 of the raspberries and toss to coat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once it comes to a slow boil, stir constantly until thickened. Take off the heat, add in the butter, lemon juice and remaining berries, stir to combine. Let cool and set aside.

Pie assembly

  • While berries are cooling, cut out stars with cookie cutter out of the remaining pie crust. Place on a lined cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated 450 degree oven for 8 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Place the berry filling into the baked pie crust like the pictures shown. Place The stars around the pie as you wish. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to cool for at least one hour. Serve as is or with whipped cream, enjoy!
