This Berry Pie is a comforting dessert hardly to resist and forget. A buttery crumbly crust filled with amazing sweet, juicy and flavorful berries enhanced with a bit of lemon juice and zest. Served with a good ice cream makes this dessert simply irresistible. Such an incredible way of enjoying these summer days.
