Took this pie to an event. I loved the crust recipe so much I even use it with other pies. very tasty!
I love pie & I make all different kinds. I felt I had perfected my crust recipe & I almost made this with my usual crust - i’m SO glad I gave this one a chance. I think this may be the best pie i’ve ever made, certainly the best i’ve ever eaten. I’m partial to how wonderfully special marionberries are - they just have all the best parts of blackberries mixed with more complex, floral flavors. This recipe really lets them shine - berries & sugar + a thickener, nothing else needed! The ratios are perfect- each slice of pie stood up without oozing everywhere and becoming soupy. Fresh berries picked at the local farm make this recipe the best. Ever. ENJOY!!
This pie was beyond words! I can't wait to make again. I used blackberries instead of marionberries. http://determinedwwmomma.blogspot.com
One of the best pies I have ever tasted, and beautiful to boot! I used frozen berries from my Northwest summer picking spree, and this simple filling really shone. I substituted a different crust recipe from America's Test Kitchen, made a lattice-top crust, and the results were perfect. The egg wash and coarse sugar finish caramelized to a beautiful color and a nice finish. The filling consistency was just right, from the first slice to the last: firm without being rubbery, juicy without being soupy, and flavor and color were lovely. Highly recommended!
I made this pie for a July 4th barbeque and it was a tremendous hit. Served with freshly made whipped cream which was almost unnecessary as the pie has so much flavor. I did need to add more water than is called for in the recipe, but that may have been because it was summer. Easy and quick to make. Made star shapes for the top which was festive and the kids loved it. Highly recommended!
