Dewberry Pie

"This is a very easy and delicious berry pie. Since dewberries are related to the blackberry, feel free to substitute. Dewberries are plentiful "where I come from" and this is an old family recipe."

Ready In:
1hr 5mins
1 pie




  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Line 9" pie pan with half the pastry.
  • Combine berries, sugar, flour and lemon juice (being careful not to mash berries).
  • Spoon berry mixture into pie shell, and dot with butter.
  • Cover with top crust and slash in several places to allow steam to escape. (I usually brush top crust with a slightly beaten egg white).
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue baking for 30 to 40 minutes, or until browned.

    I've made this about 10 times. I don't tweak, I follow it to the letter. Fantastic! Don't forget the egg wash. And if the edge gets dark too fast, protect it with foil.

    Just baked for my husband with fresh picked dew berries. It turned out great and taste delicious. Deserves the 5 stars I gave it.

    This pie was absolutely scrumptious! I used dewberries that I had picked and frozen. The pie had the perfect touch of sweetness and was super easy to make. I made the mistake of trying to cut the pie before it completely cooled, and my top crust sort of fell apart. After being completely cooled, the pie had a nice thick filling. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    I found a huge dewberry patch on one of my bike rides and went back and picked 4 gallons in a couple of hours. I have been experimenting with different cobbler recipes because I didnt think I could do a pie. Well, I was wrong! This is a simple pie recipe and even with store bought pie crusts, was just delicious! This will be my go to recipe going through these berries! Thanks for sharing!

    I had made this pie about a week ago when we found mounds of wild dewberries along our fence line. I added an extra cup of berries and a 1/4 cup of sugar because all my pie pans are deep. I also sprinkled a light coating of sugar over the brushed egg white on the crust. It was one of the best fruit pies I have ever had. The recipe is simple, but very tasty. It helped picking the berries at their peak, too. I would also recommend have a pizza stone or cookie tray on the lower over shelf to collect any spillage from the bubbly berries. Enjoy!

    Shaved salted butter and sprinkled all over berries and sprinkled sugar over egg washed crust.
