What speaks Americana more than a slab of warm sweet pie? When I think pie I think diner, big old milkshake in hand and a hard hit of sweetness surging through my body like an embracing sweet hug.

We’ve come up with this extremely easy berry pie with an extra surprise inside – toasted melted marshmallows. I mean c’mon, marshmallows, pie crust and sweet, sugary fruit all cooked up in less than an hour with absolutely no fuss? Sounds like a winner to me!
