  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

  3. Transfer to crust-lined pie plate.
  4. Dot berries with butter.
  5. Roll out remaining dough to a 12-inch circle. Cut slits in crust. Place top on filling. Trim crust 1/2-inch beyond edge of plate.
  6. Fold top crust under bottom pastry. Seal and crimp edge. Place pie on baking sheet to catch any drips.
  7. Bake in a 375 degree F oven 50 minutes or until done; cool. Makes 8 servings.


  • * If you use frozen berries, toss them with the sugar and flour; let stand for 45 minutes to partially thaw. Stir, then transfer them to the pie shell.

Pastry for Double-Crust Pie


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 6 - 7 tablespoons cold water


  1. In a mixing bowl, stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the water over part of the mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to the side of the bowl. Repeat moistening dough, using 1 tablespoon of the water at a time, until all the dough is moistened. Divide dough in half. Form each half into a ball.
