Isn’t this one of the most gorgeous examples of pie that you’ve ever seen? I can’t claim it as my own, as I’m usually horrible with pies. I always screw some integral part up – like the filling is too runny, or I botch the crimping of the crust. Luckily, my good friend Colleen is great with pies. I’ve had 2 of hers now (a delightful apple crumble pie, and the beauty pictured here), and I can never get over how lovely they look, and how wonderful they tasted!

You can use whatever berries you like. This one was filled with plump blackberries, juicy blueberries, and tart raspberries. The tri-fecta of berries, in my humble opinion. I asked Colleen how difficult the gorgeous decorative crust was to make, and she said that surprisingly, it wasn’t too bad at all. The hardest part was “rolling” out the vine ropes and placing them on top, as they wanted to crack at the bends. Slightly wetting your hands when rolling will probably help that.

So, in short, a big shoutout and thanks to Colleen. I love a dessert that I can enjoy, but don’t have to bake myself. You’re a true friend! Hope everyone is able to enjoy this at some point this berry season. Enjoy!

    I know this post is a couple of years old now, but I was wondering whether it’s possible to bake this pie and then reheat later? And if so, what temp and time would it be best to reheat it for? I’m wanting to bake some of these pies as gifts, but would prefer to precook them!

      Yes, Ash. I think it would reheat fine. Perhaps underbake a little bit, then reheat at 300 until warm.

    I am making this for thanksgiving and the recipe is wonderful!! I’ve been making homemade pies for 10 years, and the only think I can say is that the dough is very hard to work with! Other than that, it’s spot on!
