Triple Berry Cherry Pie
Come fresh berry season, treat your family to just about the tastiest pie ever created.
- 1 package (15 ounces) refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 1 1/2 cups (about 8 ounces) sliced fresh strawberries
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 egg white, lightly beaten
- 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
Preheat oven to 375°F. Let pie crusts stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine sugar and cornstarch in Classic Batter Bowl. Add strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, lemon zest and juice. Mix gently to coat fruit.
Gently unfold one pie crust onto lightly floured surface. Roll crust to 11 1/2-inch circle using floured Baker’s Roller®. Place crust in Deep Dish Pie Plate, pressing dough into bottom and up sides. Using Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush, brush pie crust with some of the egg white.
Fold cherry pie filling into fruit mixture. Spoon fruit mixture into crust.
Place remaining pie crust, folded in half, on Cutting Board. Starting at fold, cut crust into 15 strips (3/4 inch wide) using Crinkle Cutter; discard short strips on ends. Set aside 3 strips from the center. Unfold and twist remaining strips. Lay 5 of the twisted strips evenly across the filling in one direction. Lay 5 remaining twisted strips in the opposite direction, forming a crisscross lattice pattern. Firmly press ends of strips onto top edge of crust. Brush edge with egg white. Unfold reserved strips and place end to end over crust edge, trimming ends to fit, if necessary. Press edge firmly to seal.
Cover edge of pie with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of aluminum foil. Bake 55-60 minutes or until filling is bubbly in center and crust is golden brown. Cool 3-4 hours before serving. Cut into wedges.

Before removing your pie from the oven, check that the fruit filling is bubbling in the center and that the juices look clear. Cloudy juices mean the thickener, in this case the cornstarch, hasn’t had enough baking time to do its job and the pie filling will be runny.
Brushing the bottom crust with beaten egg white, before it is filled with the fruit mixture, helps prevent it from becoming soggy.
You’ll discover several Pampered Chef tools are handy to have when making this pretty pie. Use the Egg Slicer Plus® to quickly slice strawberries and the Zester/Scorer to zest fresh lemon peel.
