How difficult is it to make Boo Berry Pie:

If it looks scary or intimidating to make, I hope you’ll stick with me because I’ll walk you through the entire process of just how simple it is to recreate. 

Remember, it’s just for fun and every pie will be different so cut yourself some slack, and then cut yourself some pie dough. You got this!

Keeping things simple!

To make things simple I’ve used a store-bought deep dish pie crust and a flat-rolled refrigerated crust for the easy cut out shapes.

However, if you love to make your own pie crust and you’ve got the time I say GO FOR IT!

Tips and tricks for making Boo Berry Pie with painted pie crust:

  • First and foremost…Have fun with it!!!
  • Keep your flat pie crust as cold as possible so it cuts better.
  • Don’t worry about perfection, if you’re nervous about cutting out shapes freehand, draw your images on a sheet of paper then place them on top of your pie crust and cut around them.
  • Make sure to wash your paintbrush in water before changing colors.
  • For more vivid colors, paint 2 coats of color on each item.
  • Add water to affix the pieces together, but you can move them around first until you’re happy with their placement.
  • Make it as detailed as possible, OR keep it simple with only one, or two, ghosts if desired. It’s your pie and you can make it however you like.
  • Place the decorated pie on a baking sheet before baking in case the filling bubbles over.
  • The colors of the gel egg wash will intensify slightly during baking.
  • While the pie is baking, keep an eye on it and if the outer crust looks like it’s getting too brown, cover the outer pie crust with foil.
  • After the pie has baked and cooled, use a detail paintbrush and the black egg wash to add the faces on the ghosts and pumpkin.

Can Boo Berry Pie be made ahead and frozen?

Yes! I’ve done it several times.

After the pie has baked and cooled completely, wrap it well in several layers of plastic wrap.

Freeze for up to two months.

To serve after freezing:

Thaw the unwrapped pie completely at room temperature.

To warm, place the thawed pie in a low preheated 325-degree oven for 15 minutes prior to serving.

Can you wrap your “head” around eating gory brain food jello for Halloween? Try not to “think” about it too much, and you’ll be just fine. *insert evil laughter here*

So the other day I faced my fears (Halloween humor) and went on Facebook to make my Rat Loaf Meatloaf LIVE, from my Kudos Kitchen.

Don't be scared. This Hauntingly Delicious Boo Berry Pie is easier to make than you may think and I'm excited to show you exactly how to do it.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 deep dish pie shell
  • ½ cup fresh blackberries
  • 2½ cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup tapioca
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 refrigerated flat pie crust
  • 1 large egg
  • gel food color, red, white, purple, green, orange, black, yellow

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.

To make the pie:

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the blueberries, blackberries, orange zest, orange juice, almond extract, salt, tapioca, and sugar.
  2. Pour the berry filling evenly into a deep-dish pie crust. Dot the top of the blueberries with the softened butter. Set aside. 

To make the decorated crust:

  1. Lightly flour a cutting surface and roll or press out a 9" flat refrigerated crust.
  2. Use a sharp paring knife to cut out your desired shapes. Use a spatula to gently place the shapes on top of the pie filling, moving them around until you're happy with their placement.
  3. Use a light amount of water to affix the shapes together.
  4. Mix one egg with 1 tablespoon of water in a measuring cup with a pour spout.
  5. Add approximately 2 teaspoons of eggwash into very small cups (cut paper cups work well for this) for each different of gel color you're using. Mix each color well.
  6. Use a clean paintbrush to paint the details onto each cut pie crust piece. Two coats may be needed for more intense color if desired. **Note - Make sure to clean the paintbrush with clean water between each color change.
  7. Place the pie onto a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven for (approximately) 60 minutes, or until the juices ooze slightly, and the outer pie crust is golden in color. *Note - if the outer pie crust turns golden too quickly, cover the outer rim of the pie crust with foil.
  8. Cool on a cooling rack. When the pie is completely cool, add the faces to the ghosts and pumpkin with the black eggwash and a small detail brush if desired.
  9. Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.
