Easy Razzleberry Pie Recipe

Razzleberry Pie. It’s so fun to say! It just sounds like it’s going to be something exciting…and it is!

Razzleberry Pie is what happens when you throw raspberries, blackberries, and a little magic together into a pie crust. It’s both sweet and a little tart, surrounded by a flaky, buttery crust. This pie is one of my absolute favorites!

For this easy pie recipe, I was inspired by Marie Callender’s Razzleberry Pie, which my family used to buy years ago. But, as always, I wanted to make my own version at home, and it turned out to be completely no-fuss and simple!

This copycat Marie Callender Razzleberry Pie is so much better than store-bought. Making pies with fresh or frozen berries and butter in the crust gives you hands-down the best flavor. What’s more, you can even freeze this pie for later!

I love making fruit pies for any occasion, but this recipe for Razzleberry Pie would be particularly great in the summer for cookouts or even July 4th. Serve it with a large scoop of ice cream and we’ll call it a home run!

What’s in Razzleberry Pie?

Pie Crust

  • Flour: I used unbleached, all-purpose flour as the foundation for this pie crust. You’ll need a little to sprinkle on the counter as well!
  • Sugar: I wanted a sweet pie crust for this Razzleberry Pie so I added white granulated sugar.
  • Salt: Salt brings out the butteriness of the crust and makes everything taste just right.
  • Butter & vegetable shortening: Using both butter and shortening is a MUST for making the best pie crust! Butter gives the crust an amazing flavor, while the shortening holds it all perfectly together.
  • Water: Make sure to use ice water! This helps to keep the butter cold, which will make the crust more flaky.

Filling

  • Berries: Razzleberry Pie includes both raspberries and blackberries in it. That’s it. I know you might come across versions that also include blueberries (and it’s understandable since you can buy big bags of frozen mixed berries), but that’s a triple berry pie, not a razzleberry pie. If you can’t tell, I have VERY strong feelings about this particular pie! You can use either fresh berries if they’re in season or frozen berries throughout the year.
  • Sugar: Berries can be pretty tart on their own so some added sweetness from granulated sugar is necessary for a perfect pie.
  • Cornstarch: Cornstarch thickens the berry filling in this Razzleberry Pie. We don’t want a runny pie!
  • Lemon juice: Just a little kick of citrus elevates the flavor so much in this pie and keeps the berry flavors fresh and bright!
  • Egg: The egg is used for a simple egg wash that is brushed on both the bottom crust, which helps protect it from the juicy filling, as well as on the top crust to make it beautifully golden.

How to Make Razzleberry Pie

Pie is one of my favorite things to bake at home! It’s so satisfying to roll out the pie crust fill it with a fruity, vibrant-hued filling!

Pie Crust

  1. Mix it up! Firstly, stir together the flour, sugar, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or a food processor, cut the shortening and butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. It is only about 10 pulses with a food processor but a bit more work by hand. One trick to make the process a little easier is to freeze your butter beforehand, then grate it into the flour mixture before cutting it in with the pastry cutter if not using a food processor.
  2. Slowly stir in the ice water. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the ice water over the mixture. Using a fork, gently stir the water into the flour mixture, then repeat with the remaining water, adding only 2 tablespoons at a time, just until the dough starts to come together.
  3. Divide and shape. Next, divide the dough into two even pieces. Turn each piece of dough onto a sheet of plastic wrap and flatten each into a disc and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then allow the chilled dough to sit on the counter to soften slightly for 10 minutes before rolling out.

Filling

  1. Prep the oven. First of all, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Roll and brush. Secondly, roll out the bottom crust. Gently line a pie plate (affiliate link) with the bottom crust and brush with part of the egg wash before adding filling.
  3. Mix and pour. Next, to prepare the filling, in a large bowl add the raspberries, blackberries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice and gently toss to combine. Pour filling into the prepared pie crust.
  4. Top and brush. Roll out the top pie crust and gently lay it on top of the blackberry filling. Trim edges of the pie dough or tuck them under and crimp in a decorative pattern. Cut slits in the top for venting. If desired, you could do a lattice crust or other decorative top. Brush the top crust with remaining egg wash and sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons of sugar. A generous amount of sugar sprinkled over a brushing of egg wash will almost melt and create a crackly shell on top of the pie crust that I LOVE.
  5. Bake! Bake for 45-60 minutes, until the filling is thick and bubbly and the crust is golden brown. If the edges of the crust begin to get too dark too soon, cover them with tin foil or use a pie guard so that they don’t burn while the rest of the pie continues to bake.
  6. Cool. Finally, when the pie is done, remove from the oven and allow the pie to cool for at least 3-4 hours before serving so the filling can set up.

What is Razzleberry Pie?

Razzleberry Pie is a mixed berry pie made with raspberries and blackberries. There is no such thing as a razzleberry and I’m not quite sure who came up with that name in the first place.

Really, you could use this same recipe with your other favorite berries. Here in California, we have a short season for olallieberries and I use this same recipe using those instead during that time if I can get my hand on them at the farmer’s market.

Can I make Razzleberry Pie with frozen berries?

Yes! This is an all-season recipe that you can make with fresh OR frozen berries. Frozen berries are fantastic because they are often cheaper and frozen at the peak of freshness. However, the instructions are a little different if you’re using frozen raspberries and blackberries. I have found a trick to using frozen berries that makes a big difference between a soupy pie and a perfectly set pie that is still juicy, but sliceable.

  1. First of all, allow the berries to thaw completely in a large bowl. Pour the extra juice into a medium microwave-safe bowl. I typically end up with around 1/3 cup of juice that comes off the frozen berries.
  2. Secondly, add 1 tablespoon of the sugar and 1/2 tablespoon of the cornstarch and whisk to combine.
  3. Next, microwave the extra juice, sugar, and cornstarch mixture for 30-60 seconds, until thickened. It might be gloppy and strange looking, but don’t fret.
  4. Finally, toss to combine the defrosted berries with the remaining sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice, along with the thickened juice mixture before adding to the pie crust.

Does Razzleberry Pie have to be refrigerated?

No, I’d recommend storing this Razzleberry Pie in an airtight container on the counter for up to 3 days. You can refrigerate it if you like, but it’s not necessary.

Can I freeze this pie?

Yes! You can assemble this pie and freeze it ahead of time for up to 3-6 months. It’s great to make a double batch and freeze one for later. I love having dessert on hand that I can pull out and bake as needed!

How do I cook this mixed berry pie from frozen?

First of all, don’t thaw the pie! You can cook it directly from taking it out of the freezer. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake it at 425ºF (220ºC) for 15 minutes. Then you’ll want to turn the temperature down to 375ºF (190ºC) and bake it for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the center is bubbly.
