This is an absolutely scrumptious pie, based on one originally published in The Vancouver Sun. With its fresh summer berries piled high in a baked pie shell and a glaze poured over top, it makes a nice change from traditional pies, where the fruit is cooked. It makes a wonderful summer dessert with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream on top. (I am from Canada, but for you Americans, it would make a wonderful 4th of July dessert (strawberries, blueberries AND whipped cream) (smiles). The original recipe in The Sun called for fresh raspberries (2 cups for the glaze and 6 cups for the filling), and it's wonderful with that too, but raspberry season is very short, and this strawberry/blueberry filling is wonderful too. I have yet to try it with blackberries, but might do that this summer too .... NEW NOTE from Jacquelyn: I have had some questions about the 18-inch pie crust called for .... this was not what I wrote! I wrote two 9-inch pie crusts (as the recipe makes two pies), and the site must have done that automatically. So people .... it's not one 18-inch pie, but two 9-inch ones. Hope that clarifies things.
