*** Hot tip!! I made this pie and this picture was actually baked in the oven in a brown coated pan for 55 minutes at 375 degrees F. The filling was really runny, I don’t know if it was because the berries were REALLY juicy, but I put the pie in the MICROWAVE for 6 minutes on high, and the filling thickened nicely. The picture of the berry pie you see is actually the results. The taste was FABULOUS!! Try this and you will find a new love in your life!! ENJOY!!
