Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Thoroughly combine strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries in a bowl. Scoop out 3/4 cup of mixed berries and place into a saucepan with 1 cup water and sugar; set remaining berries aside. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low.

  • Whisk cornstarch and 1/4 cup water in a bowl until smooth and stir the cornstarch mixture into the hot fruit syrup; stir until the mixture thickens, about 2 minutes. Let the mixture cool completely, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes.

  • Pour the thickened berry mixture into fresh berries until thoroughly combined; pour berries and sauce into shortbread pie crust. Place in refrigerator until chilled, at least 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

I often just use what ever fresh berries I have, a mix of 1 or two kinds, just so pie crust is full. You can also make less and place it over 8 oz. cream cheese mixed with tub of frozen whipped topping and 1/4 cup of sugar. Blend well, place in pie crust, and top with berries. This only takes a pint of berries total.

This is my favorite summer dessert recipe. I use a graham crust and raspberries for the filling. Sometimes add a little raspberry jello powder to the cornstarch mix. Read More

We really enjoyed this. A great way to use the bounty of summer fruit and berries. Fresh peaches would be a great addition. I used the short bread crust recipe from this site and used a tart pan with a removable bottom instead of a pie pan. Very nice presentation. Thanks! Read More

My whole family loved this! I did make a chocolate shortbread crust and I cooked the berry syrup in the microwave but it was exactly like you wrote it other than that. It is delicious with the chocolate crust. It s delicious just to eat the fruit by itself. I thank you so much for this. Read More

This is so delicious with a graham cracker crust blueberries & raspberries were so expensive at the store I decided to use frozen wild Maine blueberries from Kroger and raspberries and added a container of fresh strawberries. It's a little runny with the frozen fruit but it was so good who cares making it again for a second time tonight Read More
