Lets get started:
First, your going to take your pie dough and place it in the pie pan (9½ in).
3 TBSP Cornstarchadd your sugar and cornstarch to the mixture and mix very well, while trying to cover all the berries you can.
When you got them all mixed up, you can add the mixture to your pie dough that is in the pan. With that in mind, its best that your berries are kind of sticking up, out of the pie some. Nobody likes a flat pie (“looks wise”). Next take your top pie dough and place it over top of the berries, making sure it extends over the edges a little.
Designing the edges:
First, on the edges, take your pointer finger and thumb of your left hand and place near the outside of pie crust. Next, with your right hand place your pointer finger on the insides of the crust. Then carefully make a V with around your pointer finger on your right hand, by pressing slowly with your left hand pointer finger and thumb. Then, continue all the way around the crust until you are finished. Does take some practice, but once you get it, no problem.
