Pie Recipes

Gooseberry Pie

Gooseberries are fruit-producing bushes in the same Ribes plant family as currants.

Gooseberry Pie


  • 3 cups fresh gooseberries, divided
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9-inch double crust pie
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place a baking sheet on a lower oven rack.
  2. Stem and rinse berries.
  3. Crush 1/2 cup berries in the bottom of a saucepan.
  4. Combine sugar, tapioca and salt; mix with crushed berries. Cook and stir until mixture boils. Cook for 2 more minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, and add remaining 2 1/2 cups whole berries.
  6. Pour fruit filling into pastry. Adjust top crust; cut slits to allow steam to escape. Brush top crust with milk and sugar, if desired.
  7. Bake on baking sheet until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, about 35 minutes.
