Ingredients

  • 1 graham cracker crust (or other prepared crust or bake your own)
  • 1 qt. heaping fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.)
  • 1 C Pioneer® Sugar(may use less if berries are really sweet)
  • 3 T cornstarch
  • 1 C water, divided
  • whipped topping of your choice

Directions

  1. Clean and sort berries, save out nicest berries for top of pie and put softest or blemished berries in sauce pan (about a cup). Add ½ cup of water and boil until berries are cooked and water is colored with berries. Add Pioneer® Sugar to cooked berry mixture; stir until dissolved; reduce heat to simmer.
  2. In a cup or small bowl add ½ cup cold water and cornstarch. Mix until completely dissolved. Turn heat up to medium-high and add cornstarch mixture to cooked berries stirring constantly. Cook until no longer cloudy. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Spoon a thin layer of cooked berries to the bottom of crust. Layer with uncooked fresh berries, cooked berries, etc., ending with cooked berry mixture. Top with carefully placed nice berries on top. Cool in refrigerator. Serve with whipped topping and enjoy!
