Nepenthe's Three Berry Pie
This is one of the best desserts we've ever served. Only slightly sweet, the tart fruit and delicious crumb topping are excellent when heated, then served with a scoop of rich vanilla ice cream.
The recipe for the filling will yield one 10" pie
3 ½ cups Frozen Raspberries
3 ½ cups Frozen Blackberries (boysenberries)
3 ½ cups Strawberries
3 TBSP Corn starch
2 oz. Grand Marnier
½ cup Brown sugar
1 ½ tsp. Cinnamon
Defrost frozen berries in a colander to drain excess juice. Mix ingredients together, let sit five minutes, fill in prepared crust, top with nut crumb topping, covering all berries.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until golden brown and bubbles rage!
