Razzleberry Pie AKA Triple Berry Pie

Once in a blue moon, my mom would treat us to a dessert from the grocery store. Pound cake, frosted fudge cake and one of our favorites, razzleberry pie.  Our taste buds loved that pie!

What exactly is a razzleberry you might ask?? Well you won’t find these in a berry patch, but instead, this mythical berry occurs only when a mixture of raspberries, blackberries and sometimes even blueberries make their way into a pie. A what a magnificent pie these “berries” make!

A Razzleberry Pie for Bill

I wasn’t in the cheeriest mood, but I felt like baking. I asked the hubby what he’d like for dessert. I hoped he would suggest the ubiquitous chocolate chip bars,a treat I could bake blindfolded. And a little cookie dough would certainly lift the doldrums.

But, no, instead he offered blueberry pie as his request. In the middle of winter. When blueberries come in teeny, outrageously expensive containers. And I’d need to roll out a pie crust. Ugh. I got to thinking about that childhood triple berry pie—Bill would eat that! And a crumb topping would eliminate the need for that pesky top crust!

A Triple Berry Winner!

Within minutes of popping this baby in the oven, Bill was deeply inhaling the aroma coming from the kitchen. It must have been the butter and cinnamon in the crumb topping, but a half hour later, it was the warmed berries that tantalized my senses. Bill was a happy camper with his after-dinner slice of this razzleberry pie, but I’ll probably need to make him that blueberry pie eventually.

I am pleased as punch to be sharing this recipe with my lovely friend, Manu, who resides on the other side of the world from me. It’s still hard to fathom how close I’ve become to numerous bloggers I’ve never even met, especially those who were newbies to the blogging world when I was. Manu and I met through Daring Bakers early in both our blogging days, and I became a quick admirer of her fabulous Italian dishes and more.

Her genuine good nature shines through in her posts—and her photography and recipes are top notch. Pop over to her blog and check out my triple berry pie recipe and check out her wonderful site, Manu’s Menu.  Thanks, Manu, for inviting me to share a recipe on your blog today!

  18. I really love the picture that emphasizes the berry juice overflowing the pie pan. Makes me start smacking my lips and has me craving a piece of this pie!

  19. Lizzy,
    Your pie looks delicious. I’ve never had a razzleberry pie.

  20. Love the idea of the crumb topping because when I’ve made this pie before, I’ve gone the two-crust method and I think the crumb topping would be easier and even tastier! However, I would also add that the berry filling is even better when you also add lemon juice/zest to it – brings out the tartness of the berries 🙂

  21. Glad that you explained what razzleberry was – it looks and sounds delicious! Also good that you can use frozen berries as fresh are very expensive and not always available.

  22. My family would really love this pie. I am looking forward to more fall desserts.

  23. Love it! I didn’t thaw the berries out all the way and I didn’t add sugar to the berries and it still turned out great. Thanks!
