Easy (No Bake!) Two Bite Berry Pies #SundaySupper


     I don't know about you, but I have really been loving all of the red, white and blue projects and recipes in anticipation of the 4th of July.  I'll be a little sad to see them all go after tomorrow.  The worst part is there isn't a fun food holiday in sight for a while after that.  Is there?  Am I missing one?  Or after the 4th do we have to wait for pumpkin season to have something to celebrate?!  I know... just the mere mention of pumpkin season brought twinkles to some of your eyes and the rest of you are rolling them.  Ok. Fine. I'll move on.

     Back to the good ole Red, White and Blue!  

      One of my favorite parts about cooking for the 4th, other that the patriotic part of course, is how easy it is to get the colors with berries.  I LOOOOOVE berries.  With all of the great fresh berries in the stores lately, I have been going crazy.  I'd be perfectly happy making a different red, white and blue recipe with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and cherries every day for the month leading into the 4th.  You guys (and my husband!) would tire of it long before I would. So when Cindy's Recipes and Writings picked easy 4th of July recipes as this week's Sunday Supper them, I knew it had to include berries. That brings me to these pies.


  Two bite strawberry and blueberry pies that are no bake and so easy!

     They would be perfect for your Fourth of July parties.  They would also be great for any spring or summer picnic.  You can of course make just one flavor or the other.  My husband, who doesn't even really like sweets all that much, kept going back for more to decide which he liked better.  He couldn't decide.  He said they were both a big win.  I'll take it!  



No Bake Two Bite Berry Pies
makes 30 mini pies

Ingredients:

30 mini phyllo cups

Strawberry filling:

1 1/4 cups chopped strawberries, divided
1 T lemon juice
2 T sugar
2 T water
2 T cornstarch

Blueberry filling:

1 1/4 cup blueberries
1 T lemon juice
2 T sugar
2 T water
2 T cornstarch

For serving: fresh blueberries, sliced strawberries and fresh whipped cream

  1. In a small saucepan, mix together lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch.  Stir in 1 cup of strawberries.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly.  Either mash berries a bit or hit it with an immersion blender a couple of times.  Cook until thick like a pudding.  Remove from heat and stir in remaining chopped strawberries. Spoon into a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve (up to a few days).
  3. Repeat process with blueberries.
  4. To serve: spoon into a phyllo cup, top with fresh fruit and serve with whipped cream.
Note:  I actually prefer the phyllo cups toasted up a bit.  I would recommend that if you have the time.  Do it ahead of time and make sure they are cooled completely before filling. 


     Now let's see what all of the Sunday Supper cooks are making for their 4th of July celebrations.  I can't wait to check some of these out!!

  15. I think you're right - nothing fun and foodie until Halloween, unless you get creative with "back to school"?
    I love your mini pies.
