Old Glory Berry Pie

old glory berry pie
Hello, and Happy Independence Day Weekend!  Today I wanted to share
with you this delicious Patriotic Pie recipe from, thank you tiphero!
I have added a couple of extra things to mine.
It is a perfect patriotic dessert to share with family and friends during the celebration
of our Nation's Independence.  It may look harder than it really is, but it is pretty simple.

The ingredients that you will need are as follows:

Makes 1 (9-inch pie)
Approximately  2 hours & 45 minutes

  • Pie dough shells (2) 9 inch
  • Star cookie cutter (2 inches) and/or (1 inch)
  • Knife
  • 4 ­½ cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced 
  • 1­ ½ cups fresh blueberries

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup corn starch
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract, divided
  • 1 large egg, beaten for egg wash
  • orange or lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • a pinch of sugar for sprinkling over the pie




1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 Celsius).

2. On a lightly floured surface, place your dough.  If it's on a pie plate, turn upside down
and gently unfold the edges so that it will lay flat on the surface.

3. Roll it flat with a dough roller, if you have one on hand.

4. Cut out your stars using the cookie cutter and cut the stripes with a knife. Set it aside.

5. In a bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch and mix well.

6. Take ¼ cup of the sugar mixture and a ¼ teaspoon of almond extract and add it to the blueberries in a separate bowl.  Add the cinnamon and a pinch of zest to the blueberries.
Toss to coat.  Set aside.

7. In another separate bowl, add the remaining sugar mix to the strawberries and add
¼ teaspoon of almond extract and another pinch of zest, toss to coat.

8. Take a piece of aluminum foil and fold it in half several times to create a two inch- wide strip.
Fold the bottom corners so that it fits well inside the pie dish, separate the sections by 1/3 and 2/3 areas.

9. With one hand holding the foil in place, gently pour in the strawberries into the 2/3 section, then the blueberries in the 1/3 section. Gently level out the berries and remove the foil.

10. Using the dough that was cut out for the stars and stripes, place the stripes over the strawberries making sure to leave space between the stripes.  Lay out the stars over the blueberries.

11. Brush the dough carefully with egg wash, sprinkle lightly with sugar, then cover the
edges of the pie with 2-inch strips of foil to prevent burning or a crust shield.

12. Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes, then remove the foil or crust shield,  reduce
heat to 375 degrees and continue to bake for 60 minutes or until the edges are golden and the
fruit is bubbling.

13. Cool pie for an hour before serving.  Goes well with vanilla ice cream!
