Notes: Prepare Sunset's Favorite Pie Pastry or the Sunglow Pie Pastry, or use 1 package (15-oz.) refrigerated pastry and follow steps 5 and 6 of the Sunset recipe to line pan, position top crust, and flute edges.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a bowl, mix sugar, cornstarch, and butter. Gently stir in berries.

Step 2

Scrape berry mixture into unbaked bottom crust in pan. Cover with top crust and flute edges. Line a 12-inch pizza pan or a 10- by 15-inch baking pan with foil (to catch drips) and set pie on foil.

Step 3

Bake on bottom rack of a 375° regular oven or 350° convection oven until filling bubbles in center (check through cutout or slits), 45 to 55 minutes in regular oven, about 1 1/2 hours in convection. If crust browns too quickly (check after 40 minutes), cover pie loosely with foil.

Step 4

Let pie cool on a rack at least 3 hours. Cut into wedges and serve, or chill airtight up to 1 day.

This pie was amazing, and I'm not even a berry pie person! It was my first time making pie crust, and the pie crust recipe was easy to follow and make as well. Next time I would add an additional teaspoon of cornstarch because it was a little runny, but the flavor was totally awesome!
