*Frozen bananas are a favorite addition, because they make the smoothie thick and creamy. To freeze: peel, cut in half and put in ziploc bag.

Rinse berries and pick out any stems or flower pieces. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cornstarch, flour, salt and cinnamon. Then add the lemon zest and stir to taste. Sometimes, I’ll add a little more lemon or a little lemon juice.

Prepare pie crust in a 9” plate. Fill pie with fruit. I like to make a lattice top. Simply roll out the dough and cut in 8 strips about 1” wide. Lay 4 strips across vertically, then turn the pie and weave in the other 4 strips. Pinch edges of the pie and brush with the milk. You can also sprinkle a little sugar on top. Bake at 425F for 25 minutes and then reduce to 350F for another 35-40 minutes until its bubbly on the sides. Let pie cool. Serve with ice cream.
