Patriotic Berry Pie

1 hour
1 pie
intermediate

Ingredients

  • Double crusts for one 9” pie pan
  • 4 cups total of fresh Wish Farms blueberries and blackberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 7 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg white, beaten with a fork

Directions

  • Add berries, sugar and chia seeds to a large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Simmer about 5-10 minutes, gently stirring occasionally. Taste and sweeten if necessary. (Wish Farms berries hardly EVER need extra sugar!)
  • Stir cornstarch into the juice until smooth. Bring pot of berries back to a simmer and slowly pour in the cornstarch.
  • Gently stir mixture (being careful not to mash the berries), until thickened, about 2-5 minutes.
  • Repeat above steps if necessary to thicken the mixture more.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the butter. Use a slotted spoon to grab mixture and place into the unbaked pie shell. Add the amount of juice of your liking.
  • Cut out stars from the pie crust dedicated to the top.
  • Carefully add stars on top of the berry mixture.
  • Brush a thin layer of beaten egg white over the top of the pie and sprinkle lightly with sugar.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 40-45 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely.
