Recipe submitted by DaVita dietitian Helen from Colorado.

Portions: 8     Serving size: 1 wedge


    • 1 pie crust, unformed (such as Pillsbury® refrigerated pie dough)
    • 3-1/2 cups frozen mixed berries, thawed
    • 2-1/2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 tablespoon blackberry preserves


    1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
    2. Roll pie dough into a 12” circle. Place on a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray.
    3. In a medium bowl, combine thawed berries and 2 tablespoons sugar (or Splenda® granular sweetenter sugar substitute). 
    4. Arrange mixture in center of dough leaving a 2” to 3” border. Fold edges of dough in towards the center, pressing gently to seal. (Dough will only partially cover the berries.)
    5. Melt preserves by heating in the microwave 10–20 seconds.
    6. Brush folded-in edges of the dough with melted preserves. Bake for 10 minutes; then reduce heat to 350° F. Bake an additional 20 minutes.
    7. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 tablespoon sugar or Splenda®.
    8. Serve warm or at room temperature. Cut into 8 wedges as you would a pie.
