  • 1  pie crust, unformed (refrigerated or frozen pie dough)
  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 2 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp blackberry preserves

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425° F. Thaw the pie dough and berries.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the thawed berries and 2 tablespoons of sugar (or sugar substitute). 
  • Arrange the berry mixture in the center of the dough leaving a 2" to 3" border. Fold the edges of dough in towards the center, pressing gently to seal. (Dough will only partially cover the berries.)
  • Melt the preserves by heating in the microwave 10 to 20 seconds.
  • Brush folded-in edges of the dough with melted preserves. Bake for 10 minutes; then reduce heat to 350° F. Bake an additional 20 minutes.

  • Serve warm or at room temperature. Cut into 6 wedges as you would a pie.
