#3344 - Old Fashioned Berry Crumb Pie

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 pie crust dough
3 cups fresh berries (if using large berries, slice them)
3 TBSP minute tapioca
1 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
2/3 cup white sugar (more if necessary)
1 cup flour
pinch of salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup softened butter

Crumbs: in a bowl add flour, salt, 1/2 cup white sugar and butter--mix with a pastry blender to make crumbs, then set aside. Grease a pie plate with Pam, insert the dough, flute the edges, and spray the inside of the dough with Pam. In a bowl add the berries, tapioca, lemon juice and 2/3 cup white sugar--stir to mix. If your berries are sour, you may need to add a little more white sugar. Pour the berry mixture into the pie crust. Cover the edges of the pie crust with foil. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes, remove from oven, remove the foil, sprinkle the crumbs all over the top and return to oven 15 minutes longer or until crumbs and outer edge of pie dough are browned. Cool completely.
