Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Mix cornstarch in a little bit of water and add to berries and sugar. Cook, stirring constantly until desired thickness. Add more cornstarch if not thick enough. Add lemon juice.
  3. Pour into bottom crust. Dot with butter. Put on top crust or make a lattice.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) until browned and berries are bubbling through holes in the crust, approximately 40 minutes.
  5. Note: It is a good idea to put a pan or foil under the pie as it bakes since it might bubble over.

This was deeelicious...and I don't even like elderberry pie! I added about 1T extra of cornstarch and made a lattice crust. This pie had a perfect consistency, and my family just couldn't stay...

Oh My-Took forever to clean the tiny tiny berries. Cooked them and it looked fine. I don't know what goes on in the baking process but when I was done it was crunchy-not good. NOT a do-over
