Ingredient Notes:

For the full list of ingredients and amounts, please go to the recipe card below.

Note: Some people use jello in their pie filling. This gluten free mixed berry pie recipe calls for a berry pie filling made without jello! I use tapioca or cornstarch to thicken this fruity berry pie filling.

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Mixed berry pie steps 1 and 2 photos.

Step 1: Add your dry pie crust ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend them. Add your cold butter and use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the dough. You can also use a food processor to do this, but be careful not to overgrind the butter. You want your mixture to resemble crumbs.

👀 Sandi Says: If you don’t have a pastry blender, freeze your butter and use a large cheese grater to grate the butter into the flour.

Step 2: Mix the wet ingredients to form a dough. I know it is messy, but I do this step by hand to really mix it in. Mixing with a spoon can be misleading because the dough looks dry. Mixing with your hands incorporates the moisture better.

Step 3: Place half of the dough on a piece of wax paper dusted with a little gluten free flour. Cover with another piece of wax paper and roll to 1/4 inch thickness. Remove the top piece of wax paper and place the dough side down over a pie tin sprayed with gluten-free baking spray. (*Please note PAM Baking Spray is not gluten-free!) Peel off the remaining wax paper.

Step 4: Press the dough into the pie tin and pinch the dough around the edges using your fingers on both hands.

Step 5: Add the washed berries to a large bowl. Pat them dry gently to remove extra moisture.

Step 6: Add the sugar and tapioca starch in a small bowl. Mix well.

Step 7: Pour the sugar starch mix over the fruit and mix well to coat all of the berries. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the fruit and mix.

Step 8: Gently pour the gluten free fruit pie filling into the bottom crust. Spread it out so that it is evenly placed.

Step 9: Roll out the remaining pie crust dough on wax paper. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness. From here, you can place it over your pie completely or use cookie cutters to cut out shapes in the dough.

Step 10: If you are using the crust whole, be sure to poke a few holes in the top of the crust for steam to vent out. If you use shapes like I did, you can choose how much of your pie to cover. I did not cover the entire top of my pie, and I used the extra dough to make two little mini handheld pies.

Brush the top of the pie crust with a beaten egg. You won’t use much egg; do not drench the crust, just a light egg brushing with a pastry brush. Cover the pie crust very loosely with foil.

Step 11: Bake the pie crust at 425º F for 10 minutes, then remove the foil and reduce the heat. Bake at 375º F for an additional 35 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can you use fresh or frozen berries?

I prefer to use fresh berries, as they offer such a bold sweetness. In a pinch, you can use frozen berries. Just allow them to thaw and drain almost all the juice. 

You will find frozen berries at their prime so that they will have a nice natural sweetness. The only thing is that frozen berries will offer a slightly different texture than a fresh strawberry. 

How do you thicken mixed berry pie filling?

I use tapioca starch to thicken the pie. It helps to make the liquid turn to a thicker texture, which is exactly what you want. You can also use cornstarch.

Can you use different berries?

You can definitely use other berries if you would like. Raspberries, olallieberries, and even mulberries would taste amazing in this pie recipe. You can also use straight strawberries to make a strawberry pie.

Can you make this pie vegan?

Absolutely! You can use vegan shortening to replace the butter in the recipe. It may alter the crust’s texture slightly, but you should have no problem whipping it up. You would need to skip the egg wash, which helps the crust get more golden.

How long will this triple-berry pie keep fresh?

This pie will keep fresh in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in an airtight container.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Cup4Cup blend. That doesn’t mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. You can use tapioca starch as I have, or cornstarch.
  4. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter.
  5. You can use any combination of fresh or frozen berries in this pie. If you use frozen berries, you need to thaw them and drain the extra liquid out before using them.
  6. Top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
  7. This pie will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

SPECIAL NOTE

Please know that every gluten free flour blend has a different starch to grain ratio. If you use a blend I didn’t test, you may need to adjust your moisture levels in your baked goods.

    I made this last night, using fresh berries (2 half pints of raspberries, 2 blackberry, 1 blueberry). I missed the instruction on mixing the sugar and tapioca starch, so it was watery, I noticed the starch clumping as I mixed it in the berries. It was very tasty, not too sweet, my family loved it. I also used a pie crust mix I needed to use, but look forward to using yours next time. My guess is that the eggs will make it easier to work with. I decorated mine with cut out butterflies and bunnies, given we are right before Easter.

    I was able to make this recipe with gluten free flour that I bought from ALDI. Great recipe, for my little one involved too! Thanks

      1. I’m about to make my second pie. I used King Arthur 1:1 and it worked too. Just add a little bit less water. I’m still working on buying the flour you use. I will have to order online I guess.
        Thank you.

      2. I am so glad you are enjoying the recipe. King A 1:1 is a great flour blend too…I think the main difference between that and the Cup4Cup is the dried milk powder in the Cup4Cup. That helps it brown better.

    This is absolutely delicious! I love that it’s such a crowd pleaser for the whole family
