Mixed Berry Pie

Let’s talk about this AMAZING Mixed Berry Pie but first…

So, I don’t typically talk much about my husband on this blog of mine. I mean, sure I’ll talk about his biceps and overall large muscle situation or how dreamy his dimples are, but beyond that, I think you’re pretty much left in the dark. {Except for maybe this birthday post from last year?!}

Well, guess what folks? It’s about time you were brought into the light because he is more than just a muscle man pretty face.

Fred Meyer is Honoring Heros this month and they asked me to honor him by making one of his favorite recipes.

Fiiiiiine. If I have to…

Not only is my husband a real-life hero fulfilling his military obligations in the Army National Guard, BUT he…

>is only two classes away from completing his Master’s degree, and everyone subsequently calling him “Master”

>volunteers him time for helping others at our church

>has a heart the size of…something really big {a whale? a skyscraper? the state of Texas?}

>is a fantastic fantastic fantastic father

>never ever complains

>does the laundry {most of the time}

>makes really good breakfast sandwiches

From the moment I met him, I knew he was someone special who would take me far in life, keep me guessing and love me like crazy. If I were to re-write the dictionary, my husband’s face would be next to the word hero because that is what he is to me. A ridiculously good looking hero who loves his country loves his family and loves all dessert. {Seriously, I chose well.}

So, two weeks ago when Gordon got a promotion within the National Guard, I was a good wife and went to the ceremony with our 3 kiddos in toe. And then came home and made him a pie because that’s what I do. I haven’t been making very many desserts as of late {because Eddie/baby weight/hot mess that is my jelly belly} but this was something worth splurging over.

So, about this pie:

  • you can make this in about 10 minutes and bake it for an hour
  • it is made with very minimal ingredients, and very common ingredients {I’m talkin’ about you, flour and sugar.}
  • it has copious amounts of streusel which mayyyybe should be illegal
  • everyone who tried it liked it
  • is delicious with powdered sugar, whipped cream, ice cream or all three

If you are in the dessert market and looking for a contender, this is your best bet. It’s *the* perfect summer treat that even stays together when you cut it!! Seriously, you can’t ask for more than that!

Here’s how to make Mixed Berry Pie:

Mixed Berry Pie

Start out with a pre-made frozen pie crust. I used a Kroger pie crust because I shop at Fred Meyer, but any pre-made crust {or homemade!} will do.

Mixed Berry Pie

I know it’s rough, but open that package and pull one of those bad boys out. Set it aside.

Mixed Berry Pie

For the pie filling, open up two 10 oz. packages of frozen mixed berries. I used these Simple Truth Organic ones because I wanted to feel super healthy about eating this pie slash it’s what I found in the freezer section. Any 20 ounces of frozen berries will do.

Mixed Berry Pie

So, toss those frozen berries with a little flour, a little more sugar and a splash of vanilla. Pour that into your pie crust.

Mixed Berry Pie

For the streusel topping, mix together flour, sugar, brown sugar, oats and softened butter until moist crumbs start to form

Mixed Berry Pie

Like so!

Mixed Berry Pie

Top your pie with an obscene amount of these crumbs and bake for 1 hour.

Mixed Berry Streusel

Things should be pretty bubbly and golden brown!

Mixed Berry Pie

Now, I know it’s going to be hard, but let your mixed berry pie cool completely before cutting into it. If you wait, I assure you it will cut so obnoxiously well that you’ll never want to make another kind of pie again. IF you cut into this when it’s still warm?! I make no such promises. But in both situations, it will taste REALLY good. Especially with ice cream 🙂

Mixed Berry Pie with Streusel

This Mixed Berry Pie is covered in streusel and can be topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Perfect for hot summer days or any day really!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 1 hr
Total Time 3 hrs 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 9 inch frozen ready to bake pie crust 5 oz. size, such as Kroger

for the berry filling-

for the streusel topping-

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Remove pie crust from freezer and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir frozen berries, vanilla, sugar, and flour until well coated. Pour into pie crust and even out the top.
  • In another separate bowl, measure out streusel ingredients. Using your hands, mix the streusel until it comes together and the butter is well incorporated throughout and everything is like moist sand. Spread 3/4 of the streusel over the frozen berries. {This recipe for streusel makes an obnoxious amount, especially for a pie, but that's how I like it. I used all but about 1/2 cup. Feel free to halve the topping recipe for a more socially acceptable amount of streusel for your pie.}
  • Bake pie for 1 hour or until crust and topping are golden brown. Cool completely before cutting and serving. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

    Congratulations to your husband! And to your for creating this beautiful pie while simultaneously mothering and wifing. It look delicious and I can’t wait to try it!

  2. cookbook queen

    Oh those two boys napping together is absolutely the cutest thing ever. I need to book a flight ASAP so I can get my baby fix — I miss little Eddie already!!

    This pie — I could write poetry about it.

    My husband spent 23 year in the Navy. I remember the ceremonies well. Baking is a must for wives of service men. This looks yummy. You both are gorgeous and your kids to die for. Keep him going with that schooling. My hubby didn’t stop until he was 49. You are blessed.

    Ahhh your hubs. I thought about stealing that guy last weekend. What a total catch Lauren! And whatevs about the jelly belly. I saw nothing!!! I’m also SO glad you started with a premade crust cause well that’s how I roll. This pie is almost as fabulous as you Hero!

    1. Lauren

      It was SO great seeing you and talking with you about your next steps! {So exciting!} Thanks for coming to Indulge 🙂

    What is this “Jelly Belly” you speak of? It’s obscene how great you look after multiple babies. Even more obscene is this PIE. So delish!! Congrats to your hero husband on his many accomplishments and gratitude for his service!

    1. Lauren

      No, not really! I pull it out of the freezer, assemble and bake. The fruit is frozen when I put it into the oven too 🙂

    Lauren, make this today and have to say it was one of the best pies I have ever made. We LOVED it. And, I used every bit of the streusel – I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks for a fantastic, easy recipe. Definitely will be making this again!!

    I made this pie but replaced oats with pecans it was to die for delicious and so easy served it with homemade whipped cream thank you for the idea

    This recipe looked amazing so I made the pie this past weekend! It was wonderful with vanilla ice cream. I feel like I should have added more of the streusel topping, a lot of it got soaked in the pie. Tip for next time: pile on the streusel! Also, my pie came out quite runny, even after cooling completely… how did you prevent that?

    1. Flora

      I had to bake the pie a lot longer, maybe even 1/2 an hour extra (I lost track), for the juices to thicken. At 1 hour it was still a shell full of lukewarm berry soup. It probably didn’t help that my frozen mix included a lot of huge whole berries. I haven’t tasted the pie (I baked it for my physical therapist) but, while I would bake it again (the flavor as far as I could tell is phenomenal), I’d probably start with a hotter oven to get the filling up to temperature faster and prevent sogging, then turn it down to 350 after 10-15 minutes. Half a recipe of streusel was the perfect amount, BTW:

    Hi! Love your blog! How’s Idaho? I wonder if you could make this pie with fresh berries…it being the summer berry season and all! 🙂

    1. Lauren

      You can totally make this with fresh berries! You don’t need as much flour to thicken the filling because frozen berries have a much higher water content, but besides that, everything else in this recipe should stay the same.

    I made this last night with a carton of strawberries (chopped) and most of a carton of blueberries and it is amazing! I halved the streusel topping,, since my husband doesn’t tend to like it very much and it would make a mess with a toddler, and it turned out to be the perfect amount. I will definitely be making this again! I can;t wait for spring to try it with all raspberries.

    I just made this for the second time and it is delicious. I didn’t make any changes and love the convenience of using frozen berries. Eating this in the winter is so refreshing and a tasty treat. Today it is 82 degrees here in Texas but we’re still waiting for our local berries to come in so I used frozen ones anyway. This pie was a special request from my grandchildren for Easter! Thanks for posting this recipe & I am following you now so keep them coming, please.

  15. Brooke

    Sounds sooo good! If I use one of those refrigerated crusts that you unroll, would I have to do anything with it first, or just pile everything in just like the frozen one?

    Heh…I just won our church’s first annual pie bake-off with this recipe (there were a dozen entries). Thanks so much, it was delicious!!

    I made this pie and absolutely loved it! I then had to one up it! I took your pie and turned it into the most delightful upside down almond pound cake! All I did was add walnuts to the crumble and added almond extract to the fruit. Put the crumble in the bottom of a pan, then fruit layer, followed by almond pound cake mix. Your recipe will stay in our family for years come.

    Gave my 13 year old daughter the task of finding a recipe to use up the frozen berries we have during our stay at home quarantine. This recipe is a keeper! Yummy!

    Hi thanks for the recipe. Just what me and my two little guys needed on a rainy day stuck inside. This was a good recipe to do with little kid helpers because it’s very uncomplicated and flexible. I ended up baking mine for about an hour likely due to my ovens unreliable temp settings. Also we threw in some frozen cherries.

    Absolutely loved this pie. However it never did set for me – too juicy. Would cornstarch work better than flour? Also my bags of fruit were 12 oz each but I used them all. I like the pie to be mounded when it goes into the oven then even out while baking. Will definitely make again.

    This pie was so easy to make and was delicious! I used a store bought pie crust and followed the recipe. It was a hit & I will definitely make it again! Thanks for the tasty and easy recipe!
