Tips & Tricks

Skip the cinnamon and add a teaspoon of finely grated fresh ginger to the berry mixture to add warmth and barely-there spiciness to these mini pies. Make sure to find the best berries possible: sweet, ripe, and fresh. However, frozen berries can also do the trick. The stars and stripes topping gives these pies their patriotic look but also helps steam escape and berry juice to thicken. But to prevent a soggy pie, you can also add a teaspoon or two of glucomannan powder to the berry mixture.
