Glazed Fresh Berry Pie

"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."

Ready In:
2 pies




  • First, bake the deep dish pie shells according to the instructions on the box, then let cool as you prepare the rest of the recipe.
  • To make glaze, crush 2 cups strawberries; add cold water to make 2 cups juice mixture. Pour into small heavy saucepan and place over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes; strain and add cold water to make 2 cups.
  • In heavy saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually whisk in strawberry juice mixture and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook for 1 minute or until mixture is thick, stirring constantly. Cool glaze slightly.
  • Generously fill baked pie shells with the fresh strawberries and blueberries. Divide the glaze in half, then pour over the fruit in each pie. Put in refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours or until glaze is chilled and set.
  • Just before serving, whip cream with some icing sugar and a splash of vanilla to sweeten. Enjoy this fantastic summer dessert! Everyone will ask for seconds.

    Delicious and so refreshing! I used a mix of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries... mmm mmm good! I did't use the whipped cream. Very easy to put together and quite impressive looking. Thanks for posting , I will make this again.
