4 Ingredient Berry Pie

Few things feel more comforting to me than a slice of warm, homemade pie and being cuddled up on the couch with a throw pillow and soft blanket. Pie is always a perfect dessert. You can make a pie and have it waiting when company arrives, bake a pie on a cold winter day, take a homemade pie to a summer picnic, treat your family to a big Sunday dinner complete with pie for dessert… any old occasion calls for pie!

Making a pie can be a bit labor intensive. Everyone loves my moms apple pie. I remember coming home from a retreat on an Easter weekend as a teenager; The house was clean and smelled of cinnamon and pastry. Apple pie! But now I know how much work it can be to make a crust from scratch and peel a pile of apples by hand. Busy people, like me, still want homemade pie but we have limited time to make it. Never fear… 4 Ingredient Berry Pie here!

I’m seriously a fan of ready made pie dough. It’s perfect. Why would I bother with making my own crust when store-bought dough is just as good? I just don’t anymore.

I serve my berry pie with fresh whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream. And hot… this pie is so amazing when hot!

  • Author: Carissa Shaw for Mom Needs Chocolate
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 75
  • Total Time: 105
  • Yield: 1


  • 24 ounces of frozen mixed berries (I use the All Natural Triple Berry Blend from Schwan’s… and bonus, they delivery to my door!) – I prefer a blend of raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries for this recipe, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 box of Pillsbury or store brand ready-made pie crust dough (there are two sheets of dough in the box to make one double crust pie)


1. In a large bowl, stir together the thawed berries, sugar, and flour.

2. Lay the first pie dough sheet into a pie dish then fill with the berry mixture.

3. Lay the second pie dough sheet over the top of the pie and pinch the edges together. Cut 4 small slits in the center of the pie so it can release steam as it cooks.

4. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

5. Allow the pie to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving

Tip: When baking the pie, place a cookie sheet underneath to prevent the berry juices from spilling into your oven. If the crust browns too quickly, remove the pie from the oven to cover with foil before returning it to the oven to finish cooking.Note: The pictures in this post are of two different pies that I made on separate occasions (same recipe though). For one I used a lattice weave for the top crust and for the other I went with a simple “stick the crust on top of the pie and bake it” method. Both are perfect. Be as fancy or as simple as you wish!

    This looks so good. It is almost time for blackberry picking season here and blueberries. I usually use premade crust as well. I spray it with Winona Popcorn spray on the bottom before I add filling, then brush the top crust with milk and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. I don't know how but the spray helps the bottom crust crisp up.

    Yum! I almost never make pie because it seems so hard compared to other things but this looks easy and delicious!

    I use premade crusts most of the time too. I really like Pillsbury's gluten free crust, it makes living the GF life so much easier! I'm thinking we might make this for dessert this weekend… 🙂

    You just inspired me! I have a pie crust in the freezer AND I just bought some blueberries from the library (they had a fundraiser). I think I'll make it with a crumb topping though, because I only have one crust.
