TRIPLE BERRY PIE — This amazing pie, with a flaky homemade crust, is loaded with a sweet and tart berry filling for an out-of-this-world dessert experience. Don’t forget a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
We’re mostly fans of cream pies at my house, so I don’t make baked fruit pies very often, but this Triple Berry Pie left me wondering why. It’s amazing, and immediately became a family favorite.
I’m already planning to make it again for Thanksgiving, and any other special occasion that comes up between now and then. In fact, I probably won’t even wait for a special occasion, it’s that good.
Yes, it’s a bit more work than your average dessert, especially with the homemade pie crust (which is an absolute must for this pie to reach it’s full potential), but it is SO worth it!
The first time I made this pie, we shared it with friends, and it was a huge hit with everyone–kids and adults alike. Almost everyone went back for seconds.
My family is already asking when I’ll be making this pie again.
I went all-out and did a lattice crust on this pie, but you can do your top crust however you like. A traditional top crust with a few slits cut in the top to let steam escape will work just as well.
And it’s a little less time consuming than doing a lattice crust. Either way, your pie will look and taste amazing. If you do opt for a lattice crust, there’s a great tutorial over at Simply Recipes.
Of course, using a good pie crust recipe is the key to a delicious baked pie. I highly recommend Grandma’s Secret Pie Crust. I’ve tried a lot of pie crusts, and it’s the best recipe I’ve found.
You can use fresh or frozen berries in this recipe. You’ll be thickening your filling before putting it in the pie, so either kind of berries will work.
This Triple Berry Pie is a show-stopping dessert that’s made with love and sure to become a family tradition.

Here’s what you’ll need to make Triple Berry Pie
- White vinegar
- Fresh or frozen berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, etc.)
- Coarse sugar, optional
- 1 recipe Grandma's Secret Pie Crust
- 8-10 cups fresh or frozen berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, etc.)
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Zest and juice of 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg, beaten
- Coarse sugar, for sprinkling on crust (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare pie crust. Line a 9-inch deep dish pie pan with the bottom crust; set aside.
- In a large saucepan, combine berries, sugar, salt, and lemon juice and zest over medium heat. Simmer until just warm, about 5 minutes.
- In a small bowl, whisk together water and cornstarch until smooth. Gradually stir cornstarch mixture into berry mixture. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in the butter until melted.
- Cool berry mixture for 15 minutes, then pour into to prepared pie crust. Add the top crust and crimp the edge. Brush top of pie with beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse sugar, if desired.
- Bake for about 45 minutes, or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly. Place foil over the crust about halfway through cooking time, if needed, to prevent crust from overbrowning.
- Remove pie to a wire rack to cool before slicing and serving.
