This berry pie is so easy! It is a recipe I make again and again, and I recommend it to new bakers. The triple berry pie is a perfect recipe to ease into the art of making pies. My family loves it. It makes the whole house smell good while it is baking in the oven and the berry flavors combine beautifully. Who knew this berry pie recipe would be so simple to throw together a pie for dessert?
One of the things I love most about this recipe is that it uses frozen berries. This makes it possible to enjoy a delicious berry pie any time of the year. The natural juices that come from the berries as they thaw provide all of the moisture needed for the glaze in the pie filling. The filling sets up so well and stays inside the first cut piece of pie and doesn’t spill out onto the plate. I hate it when that happens! So here’s all you need to get started:
Ingredients for the Mixed Berry Pie
Berry pie has just a few ingredients that can take an ordinary pie to the extraordinary! It is filled with fresh berries mixed together with a hint of sweetness. The pie crust holds it all together while it is baking in the oven. It is the perfect combination!
- Pie dough crusts – This is a double-crust pie. There are several tasty options in the refrigerated section of your grocery store. The Pillsbury Pie Crusts that come in the tube work great! Find frozen pie crusts in the freezer section too. You can also make your own with our simple Perfect Pie Crust recipe.
- Blackberries – Use about one and a half cups. You can use boysenberries too!
- Blueberries – Make sure to buy frozen berries without added sugar in them or the pie could taste too sweet.
- Raspberries – Frozen are best for this pie. Raspberries are a beautiful red that has a sweet flavor to them.
- Sugar – White granulated sugar adds sweetness and melts in the berries helping any tartness.
- Cornstarch – This will help thicken the luscious pie filling and give it a nice substance to hold within the pie and not overflow.

Making a Homemade Pie Crust
If you have followed our recipe for the Perfect Pie Crust you know it turns out flaky and beautiful every time! This is because of just a few simple steps we follow. You can also skip this part and use store-bought crusts, do it!
- Combine – Sift the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar together.
- Crumble – Cut or crumble part of the shortening or cold butter into the flour mixture. You can use a pastry blender or even your fingers, but make sure your shortening or butter is really cold. Once the mixture is crumbly, add the rest of the shortening. Work the fat into the flour mixture until it has formed about pea-sized crumbles.
- Do not over-mix – After you add the wet ingredients, DO NOT over-mix. Handle the dough as little as possible. No kneading! You want it to just be able to hold together before using a rolling pin to roll the dough on a lightly floured surface.
- A crumble topping is also delicious on this pie. We use the recipe for crumb topping on our Dutch Apple Pie. It is a simple topping to make using all purpose flour, butter, and sugar.

Frequently Asked Questions
To help avoid this berry pie from being soggy it is best to brush or wet the surface of the unbaked crust with water or a beaten egg wash mixture. Then add the filling and do it again on the top crust. The moisture from the egg or water will be a barrier over the crust and provide a layer of protection.
Use a mixture of cornstarch and cold water to thicken the pie filling. Cornstarch will give the filling a nice shiny look.
Cornstarch has twice the thickening power of flour, so you won’t need as much. Cornstarch also makes the filling glossy. Flour also thickens great but leaves more of a matte finish.
For this recipe, you do not need to prebake the pie crust before adding the berry filling. If you feel more comfortable prebaking that will be great too. It will ensure your pie crust is golden brown, crisp, and buttery flavor!
Place the bottom crust in a 9-inch pie dish, add the filling, and then add the top crust to the pie pan. You can crimp the edges, cut a strip of dough for a lattice top look, or sprinkle a little bit of sugar on top of the crust.
Storing Homemade Berry Pie
A berry pie is actually best stored at room temperature. Don’t cover the pie, either. Plastic wrap or foil traps moisture in the crust, making it soggy. It will stay good on the counter for about five days. When ready for a slice warm it up in the microwave or heat the pie in the oven until it is warmed through!
