  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice*

  1. Blend sugar, cornstarch and salt. Pour over berries and stir until berries are coated. Pour berries into an unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter. Add a top crust and cut several slits in top to permit steam to escape.
  2. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes; then at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.

For canned or cooked berries, allow 2 cups of fruit and 1/2 cup juice.
