Red White & Blue American Pie from Angela Roberts

A few things you need to know about baking with raspberries and blueberries which is the combination of this pie. Make sure the blueberries are very fresh and sweet. If you can’t get good blueberries, buy frozen. I do that a lot when it’s not blueberry season. As far as raspberries, truthfully, they are better not cooked, but if you do add them in for that amazing boost of color, add more sugar. They tend to become much more tart, as they cook. I did make a successful raspberry pie once that I named the Scarlet O’Hara Pie, but in general I think raspberries are best eaten as is.

Sometimes when I prepare a berry pie, I will cook the fruit on top of the stove first as I did here, with this blueberry pie filling.  That’s great when the pie is covered, but I wanted a different look for this pie.

I also used a tin pie pan for the first time ever, as a trial. I wanted to see if my crust would cook better on the bottom as I used a heeping helping amount of fruit and juice.

Serve with vanilla ice cream, or better yet, try this pie with peach ice cream. It will pair well and be a nice surprise.

  1. I just made a blueberry pie this afternoon with pastry stars on top to bring to a 4th of July dinner tonight. Wish I had seen the stripes in your post sooner so I could have added those also. Brilliant! I cooked 1/4 of the fruit and mixed in the fresh berries. Kind of best of both worlds. Will try your pie too.
