Triple Berry Heart Pie

Valentine's Day is a month away, and I am in full Valentine mode over here! I have lots of fun things happening between now and February 14th, so I had to get started on some yummy recipes.

INGREDIENTS

  • You can buy two frozen crusts (I used Trader Joe’s) or make a homemade crust.
  • 4 Cups frozen berries (I used a triple berry mixture from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 4 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Egg white beaten with a fork
  • 1 Tablespoon half and half or milk
  • Heart Cookie Cutters 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Thaw or make your crusts. Roll each one out over a floured surface. Place one crust in the bottom of your pie dish.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine berries, sugar, corn starch, cinnamon and lemon juice. Stir and then bring to medium heat. After a few minutes, reduce heat to low.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the butter. Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell.
  4. Roll out second pie crust until its about ¼ inch thick. Begin using your heart cookie cutter and place them on top of the berries. Layer according to how you want it to look. I used three different size heart cookie cutters.
  5. Combine egg white and milk, whisk well. Brush a thin layer of beaten egg wash to the top of the pie and sprinkle lightly with sugar.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees. Check it after about 25 minutes and place a piece of tinfoil over it if the top crust is getting too brown.  Bake for 15-20 more minutes or under golden and bubbly!
  7. Let to cool for several hours. Enjoy!
