Berries always make a wonderful platform for a variety of culinary delights,
especially in the dessert category. These fruits are wholesome and fat free
while still maintaining a wonderful quotient of taste for their size.
1 1/2 cups Fresh raspberries
1 1/2 cups Fresh strawberries, rinsed, hulled and sliced
1 cup Fresh blueberries
9" Prepared pastry shell
3/4 cup Granulated sugar
3 tablespoons Cornstarch
1½ cups Water
1 package (4 serving size) Strawberry gelatin
8 ounce carton Whipping cream
In a large mixing bowl, combine all three berries and pour the mixture into the
prepared pastry shell.
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in the
water until a smooth mixture is formed. Making sure to stir constantly, cook the
mixture over medium-high heat setting until it comes to a boil. Boil for one
minute and remove the mixture from the heat.
Stir in the strawberry gelatin until dissolved. Let the mixture cool to room
temperature and pour it over the berries in pastry shell.
Refrigerate the berry pie for 3 hours prior to serving. Whip the fresh cream
just before serving and spread evenly over the entire pie, then slice and serve.
