Ingrients & Directions

2 c Strawberries
1 tb Quick cooking tapioca
1/3 c Granulated sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
2 c Blueberries
Pastry for 9-inch pie crust
3 tb All purpose flour
2 tb Brown or granulated sugar
1 tb Butter
1/4 c Shredded or flaked coconut

1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut strawberries into 1/4-inch-thick slices and
place in a large bowl with remaining filling ingredients. Stir well to
evenly distribute tapioca and sugar. Let stand for 10 minutes to allow
tapioca to soften a little.

2. Meanwhile, roll out pastry and fit into a 9-inch pie plate. Trim and
finish edge as you like. Do not prick. Set aside or refrigerate until
ready to use.

3. Prepare topping by measuring flour and sugar into a small bowl. Stir
with a fork until well blended. Using your fingertips, rub butter into
flour mixture until it is the size of small peas. Gently stir in coconut.
Set aside.

4. When fruit filling has sat for 10 minutes, turn into unbaked pie shell.
Bake on bottom rack of preheated 400 F oven for 30 minutes or just until
filling starts to bubble and edges of pastry are a light golden color. Then
sprinkle topping over centre portion of pie, leaving a 2-inch border of
fruit showing around edge. Reduce heat to 350F. Bake for another 15 to 18
minutes or until topping is golden.

5. When baked, transfer pie to a rack to cool for about 15 minutes. Serve
pie warm of at room temperature.
