Summer Berry Pie with a Twist #HotSummerEats

This time of year is just too delicious, with all the berries, herbs and veggies.  What about mixing the berries with herbs, and throwing them in a pie?  This recipe mixes blueberries, strawberries, basil, and Not Ketchup Blueberry White Pepper Sauce.  When you first dig in, the sweet flavors of the berries burst, then the basil and blueberry white pepper sauce make for a perfect end to each bite.  Who wants a slice of Summer Berry Pie with a Twist?

Save Recipe


2 lbs of strawberries, sliced (about 4 cups)
3 pints of blueberries (about 6 cups)
3 heaping Tbsp of fresh basil, chopped finely
1 cup sugar
1 cup Not Ketchup Blueberry White Pepper Sauce (or 1 additional cup of sugar)
Already prepared pie crust
1/4 cup half and half
1/4 cup sugar


In large bowl, mix together prepared strawberries, blueberries, basil, sugar, and the blueberry white pepper sauce.

Spray cooking spray on 10 inch pie pan, lay first prepared pie dough in pie pan, spread out dough around sides and edges to evenly distribute. Pour pie mixture in pan, and place second pie dough on top to cover the pie, make about six cuts in top of dough for ventilation. Brush top of pie with heavy cream, and sprinkle sugar on top. Set oven to 400 degrees F, and let bake for 15 minutes. Then turn oven down to 375 degrees F, and let pie cook another 45 minutes (depending on oven.)

Pie crust on top should be golden brown, and the center will be bubbling out.

Each bite will make you do a happy dance.


I used store bought pie dough, only because of time. So this recipe will not take long to make, and is perfect for those with a busy schedule.

    Terra, I love the mixture of strawberries and blueberries. I have never added half and half to a pie before. I can’t wait to try it.

  • I just learned that my mom follows your blog! How cool is that? She was all crazy over this, but got scared off by the blueberry white pepper sauce. Does it have much of a kick?

  • Pie is a dangerous thing to have in this house as well. Two people, one pie, gone in 2 days. 🙂 Your pie looks downright delicious. Your list of ingredient is amazing! Basil and white pepper sauce. I can’t even imagine the final flavor of this pie. Guess I’ll have to make it and find out.
