These are my favorite (easy) SUMMER PIES!
Topless Blueberry/Blackberry Pie
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 pinch salt
1 cup water
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups fresh blackberries
1 tablespoon butter
1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in water and 1 cup of mixed berries. Cook and stir over medium heat, until thick, approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
Add butter and let cool about 5 minutes. Stir in remaining berries.
Pour into baked pie shell and cool in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.
Easy Limeade Pie
1 (6 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (8 ounce) frozen container nondairy whipped topping (Cool Whip, etc.), thawed
1 graham cracker crust
Mix limeade (may substitute lemonade concentrate) and sweetened condensed (not evaporated) milk in a large bowl. Fold in whipped topping. Pour filling into graham cracker crust. Place in freezer 2 to 3 hours
This is a really cool pie for hot summer months; not the same as a Key Lime pie, but so refreshing!

- When I was 55, I decided to embrace the things I love and hold precious and dear - regardless of anyone else's thoughts and opinion. I am a folk artist who loves flowers - my own flowers, grown by me. I love good, hearty, exotic foods, and I love to prepare them myself. I love the secret garden situated in my backyard, regardless of how junky it gets. No longer able to afford a vacation, this will have to be it for the time being. In the winter months, I still enjoy it. Anyway, here I am sharing my art, favorite recipes, cocktails, gardening tips, and just my usual vents and bantering. After all, I'm old enough to say whatever the heck I want to now ... Oh, the two pictures below are NOT of my garden, although the one with the pink French doors looks very much like the backyard I grew up with. I am searching for pictures of that wonderful place and will post soon.
