A Very Berry Fourth!

Every Fourth of July my nieces make a pie, this year Gigi and, her best pal, Charlotte, made a Very Berry Pie.  They both love to bake and came up with the recipe on their own.  I was so impressed and loved watching them interact in the kitchen.  They used two pre-made frozen pie crusts; one for the bottom and the other one they rolled out to make stars for the top.  It took them all-in-all about 15 minutes to complete and the end result was to die for.  It proves that you don’t have to a master baker to create a prize worthy dessert! I hope you have a wonderful Fourth!
