Berry Pie

This is such a great recipe from one of my  mom’s old cook book’s. I’ll post the name when I found out which it came from.  Our favorite type of berries to use are boysenberries or blackberries.

2 Frozen prepared pie crusts
4 cups fresh berries (we prefer frozen boysenberries or blackberries)
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1-2 teaspoons lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter

Pre-heat oven to 425.
Combine all ingredients except the berries and butter.
Arrange half the berries in the frozen pie shell and sprinkle with half the sugar mixture.
Pour the rest of the berries and repeat.
Dot the filling with butter. Remove the second crust from the tin and place it upside down on top of the pie.
Bake 40-50 minutes or until filling is tender and crust nicely browned.
