Good Morning & Happy Thanksgiving week! Today I am going to share with you my daddy's favorite pie! He LOVES this pie and while I will admit it is good, it will certainly make you pucker up!
2 cans of Oregon Gooseberries
approximately 2 tbsp. cornstarch
top & bottom pie crust
butter - to taste
sugar - to taste
cinnamon - to taste
Preheat oven to 350*. Prepare a bottom crust to receive the following: Open cans of gooseberries and drain the liquid into a small sauce pan. Set berries aside. Add cornstarch to berry juice and stir WELL, breaking up any lumps of cornstarch. Cook over low-medium heat...stirring constantly [or at least VERY often]. Once the mixture begins to thicken, remove from heat and fold in berries. Pour berry mixture into bottom crust. **Sprinkle sugar and/or cinnamon over this mix, if you like. Once the mixture is in the bottom crust, cover with the top crust, pinching the edges together. Cut slits in the top. Butter top. Sprinkle a little sugar and cinnamon over top. Slide into the oven and cook for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Once the crust is browned, remove pie and serve when cool. Yummy!
**I never add sugar to the inside of the pie because my dad loves it SOUR.
I surprised my dad with a gooseberry pie for Christmas one year many years ago. I've made him one every year since!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving...and remember to be deliberate in counting your blessings!
