Bill's Berry Pie

Print Friendly and PDF
This is the best berry pie ever! Bill Lemire baked this homemade pie which was totally scrumptious. He served it while it was still warm from the oven with vanilla ice cream. You can use any assortment of fresh or frozen berries.

2, Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, at room temperature
6 cups whole berries, fresh or frozen
1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cup sugar
3-1/2 to 4 Tablespoons tapioca
2 Tablespoons butter, cut up

Place one pie crust in the pie pan. In a large bowl, mix berries, sugar and tapioca. Place berry mixture in the pie pan. Dot with butter. Cut slits in the second crust (see photo). Place the second crust on top of the berries. Pinch the edges of the two crusts to seal (flute edges, if desired). Bake at 400 degrees for 15 min. then cover edges of crust to prevent over-browning. Continue baking for an additional 25-30 min. more. Serve with vanilla ice cream. (If you are using frozen blueberries, increase the tapioca to 4-5 Tablespoons.)
