Fourth of July Berry Pie

It's easy to make a flag pattern with stars and stripes of dough when making a berry pie. This cute design makes it perfect for Independence Day.

I used blueberries since they are on sale. We love them anyway, but you can make the entire pie with strawberries or with a little corner of blueberries for the flag design. Either way it's a simple way to add some fun to your festivities!

Total Time: 70 minutes

Yield: one pie


  • frozen deep dish pie crust
  • 5 cups blueberries (fresh of frozen)
  • 4 or 5 strawberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp butter


  1. Mix the blueberries, sugar, corn starch, salt and cinnamon together in a bowl while the pie shells thaw out a bit.

  3. Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie shell and add lines of cut strawberry slices as shown.
  4. Place one unbaked pie shell onto a floured board and cut a few strips of pie dough.
  5. With a cardboard cut out star pattern or a star cookie cutter, cut out a few star shapes from the dough and lay them on top of the pie, flag style. I cut one teaspoon of butter on top of the mixture before placing the crust. Save the remaining dough in the freezer for future desserts, like an apple dumpling.

  7. Bake in the oven at 425 F for 50 minutes.
  8. Enjoy your 4th!
