My husband requested a pie rather then a cake for his birthday (I think I'm totally with him- we're just pie people. I'll take a good Apple Pie over cake just about any day. It had so be homemade those. As good as Merie Calendar is at making pies, they just don't cut it for me.) Anyway, I came up with this Berry Pie because I couldn't decide between strawberries or rasberries. (They are both his favorite. :) It had both, so I was safe. It was pretty yummy, if I do say so myself. :)
