Do you have an overabundance of mulberries? Are you looking for a delicious mulberry pie recipe? This mulberry pie is a delicious way to use up all of those extra mulberries!
Do you grow your own mulberries? We have a couple of mulberry trees and this year they produced a TON of berries! The were delicious!
We ate some straight from the tree, staining our fingers and mouths:) We at them by the bowl full for snacks and with meals, we at some in the form of Mulberry Kombucha. And of course I made us this delicious mulberry pie!
It was a big hit! Definitely a great way to keep those extra mulberries from going to waste. I first made this pie on a Sunday afternoon and then that night we ate it for dessert while having family movie night. It was a great night:)
Mulberry Pie Recipe
To start making your pie you need to first make sure that you have plenty of berries. You will need 5-6 cups of mulberries.
This is a very easy recipe to make, however one step does tend to take a little time. The most time consuming part of this recipe is cutting off the stems from the mulberries. Using kitchen scissors trim off the stems from each berry.
Once you have trimmed and washed each of your berries, set them aside and prepare your crust according to your crust’s recipe or instructions.
Mix together the dry ingredients with a fork. Then add the berries and lemon juice. Gently fold and stir everything together to evenly coat all of the berries.
Pour the berry mixture into your pie crust and then cut the cold butter into small pieces, scattering them evenly on top of the pie filling.
The top layer of your crust can be applied however you would like. If you would like to make your crust in a lattice pattern as I did in the picture, then you need to fold your crust in half and cut it evenly into fifteen strips, approximately 3/4 inch wide.

Next set aside the three large strips from the center. Taking the remaining strips, unfold and twist them. Lay five of the twisted strips evenly across the filling in one direction. Then lay the 5 remaining twisted strips in the opposite direction, forming a crisscross lattice pattern. Firmly press the ends of the strips onto the top edge of the bottom crust. Brush the edge with water. Unfold the three reserved strips and place them end to end over the crust edge, trimming the ends to fit as needed. Press the edges of the crust to seal it.
How to Make a Mulberry Pie
Finally it’s time to place your pie into the oven that has been preheated to 400 degrees and bake it for about 45 – 60 minutes. The crust should be golden brown and the filling slightly bubbly.
If needed you can loosely cover the pie with aluminum foil once it is browned to prevent burning.
Let the pie cool completely before serving. This pie is great eaten alone, but it is also excellent served with vanilla ice cream!
