- 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
- Dash salt
- 1/2 t. cinnamon and 1/2 t. nutmeg (optional)
- 1-2 t. lemon juice
- 1 T butter
- 2 pie shells

- Mix together sugar, flour, lemon peel & salt (and spices) in bowl.
- In pie crust, add berries, then dry mixture.
- Sprinkle with lemon juice & dot with butter. Adjust top crust.
- Sprinkle sugar on top, cut air slits & Bake at 400 for 35-40 minutes.
