You'll need one double raw pie crust

Filling Ingredients

4 cups fresh or frozen elderberries

1 ½ Cups White sugar or Sugar Substitute

4 Tablespoons Flour

2 Tablespoons Cornstarch

1 lemon, grate ½ of the lemon rind

1 teaspoon butter

1 egg white

Sprinkle of sugar

Directions

 

Combine all ingredients into a 3 quart or larger sauce pan.  Simmer on medium heat,

stirring occasionally. When mixture begins to thicken, stir constantly to avoiding scorching,

until you achieve a thick pie filling consistency.   

Carefully pour filling into bottom pie crust, do not overfill. 

Add 1 teaspoon of butter.

Apply top crust; carefully seal the edges. I use cold water between the two crust layers to ensure a tight seal.

Gently brush top of crust with egg white.   Sprinkle with sugar.

Cut decorative holes in top crust to vent.

You’re ready to bake:

15 mins at 425 degrees

Then, 30 – 40 mins on 350 degrees

Allow to cool before cutting into pie.

Serve with cool whip, or warm with Ice Cream.  

YUMMY!!!
