You want to know what I love about crumble pies?!
Well, it’s two things really.
One – you don’t have to stress about making a lovely edging around the top of the pie when you have the top layer of crust.
Two – you can pile the crumble super high for extra sweetness. (Which is important with this pie…because the berries can be tart!)
With this Berry Crumble Pie, we are using a simple pie crust (store bought is fine!), a bowl full of sweetened berries, and a bowl full of crumble. Put it all together (in that order) into a pie plate and let the oven take care of the rest!
This delicious Berry Crumble Pie recipe is perfect for summer potlucks and BBQs, or a simple dessert after a weeknight dinner.
