I'm not in love with coloring my food red and blue for July 4th.
Not that it bothers me to see anyone else do it.
It's just that once I get started on a dessert, and it's time to pull out the food coloring,
I just think, “why bother?” And back in the cupboard it goes…
But I can get behind berries for the 4th!
I love all the gorgeous red and blue berries that are out right now–
does anything say summer better than a berry dessert in July??
Thanks to Dorothy

The pie crust on the bottom and the massive amount of crumble on the top make this one ah-mazing pie, and I wouldn't expect anything less from the queen of crusts 🙂
