Berry Pie using Frozen Fruit

Berry Pie using Frozen Fruit

5 from 3 reviews

Here is a simple pie recipe using frozen berries. This is a quick and easy dessert that can be used with all of your favourite fruits or berries. For a deep-dish pie double the pastry recipe (you will need to add extra fruit). For a small pie, you can get away with a single pastry recipe.

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 pie pastry recipe
  • 56 cups assorted frozen berries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries (I used cranberries too)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Milk to brush the top of the pie
  • Coarse sugar to sprinkle on top of the pastry (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Make pastry from pastry recipe. Let rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. Set out a 9″ pie dish.
  2. Meanwhile, rinse frozen berries (if ice has started to form around berries), drain. Combine berries in a large bowl, mix sugar, flour, and berries together. Set aside.
  3. On a prepared work surface roll the dough out into a circle larger than your pie dish (approx. 13 inches), and 1/4 inch thick. Gently lay the dough into a 9-inch pie dish.
  4. Trim the edges around your pie pan and reserve the dough to use for your lattice.
  5. Prick the bottom of the pie several times with a fork.
  6. With the extra pastry re-roll and cut into strips (you’ll need 9 or 11 strips).
  7. Fill the pie with the berry mixture and make your lattice on top. Trim the extra edges and press the pastry edges together. Don’t worry about the lattice being perfect, just have fun! 
  8. Brush the top lattice with milk and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Add butter dollops in the holes of the lattice.
  9. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 450˚F.
  10. Place the pie in the middle rack, with a baking sheet on the rack below to catch any pie drippings. Bake for 10 minutes at 450˚F. Reduce the heat to 350˚F and continue to bake for another 40-45 minutes until crust is brown and filling is bubbling (check your pie at 30 minutes). Keep an eye on the crust if it’s browning too quickly cover it with a pie shield or tin foil. 
  11. Let pie cool for 10 -15 minutes before serving.

Notes

I did not have enough frozen fruit in my freezer so I added 2 Granny Smith apples to add as a filler. If doing this make sure to cut your apples into small chunks, around the same size as your berries for even baking. You can also add fresh fruit as well. 

Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
