Ever make something that doesn't look quite right? But then it ends up tasting marvelous?! We had some bags of frozen berries hanging out in our deep freezer for a while, so we decided to try our hand at a homemade pie.
We found a recipe for a mixed berry pie online, and of course I can't find it now to link to it, but the recipe we used is as follows:
- 2 frozen pie shells
- 4 cups berries
- 2/3 cp sugar
- 7 tblsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tblsp lemon juice
- 3 tblsp grape juice
Unfortunately, my top crust had troubles coming out of the foil pan, and this is what I ended up with ~ We decided it looked a little like Frankenstein's monster, so we named it Frankenberry Pie!
The cornstarch really helped hold it all together. We were amazed at how it didn't come spilling over after we cut out our pieces. The fruit usually spills out of the store bought frozen pies.
