This is an excellent recipe. Not too sweet and the berries are not too undercooked or overcooked. I forgot to dot with butter and it worked just fine. Also tried with lime and still very good. Can be done without a top crust and eaten as is or topped with ice cream or whipped cream. This one is going in my best cookbook.

This recipe is fantastic - I got a bucket of saskatoons at the Farmers Market yesterday and made pies. They were great - hoping it will work with blueberries too!

This was a great recipe - held together nicely, easy to prepare. Unfortunately for me, I am not really a fruit pie person (other than apple), so it's not a recipe I will make often, but if you like saskatoons and fruit pies, this is your recipe!!
