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 mixed berry 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!
Mixed Berry Pie Recipe
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!
The Best Berry Pie
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 our senses.
There is something magical that happens when you bake this trio of berries together. I promise, you’ll love it as much as we do! 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.

If your berries aren't very juicy, you may want to decrease your cornstarch to 3 tablespoons.
