Old Fashioned Berry Pie

Old Fashioned Berry Pie

This is a great recipe from one of my mom's old cook books. Our favorite type of berries to use are boysenberries or blackberries.


  • 2 Frozen prepared pie crusts
  • 4 cups fresh berries (I like frozen boysenberries or blackberries)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1-2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter



Pre-heat oven to 425-F.


Combine all ingredients, except the berries and butter.


Arrange half the berries in the frozen pie shell and sprinkle with half the sugar mixture. Pour the rest of the berries and repeat.


Dot the filling with butter.


Remove the second crust from the tin and place it upside down on top of the pie.


Bake 40-50 minutes, or until filling is tender and crust is nicely browned.
