surprise pie

It's my sister's birthday today. So to give her a little surprise treat I baked her a berry pie - strawberry and blueberry. But I couldn't find the Betty Crocker Pie Crust mix in the supermarket so I made from scratch - and luckily it turned out alright, despite a rather crunchy edge (which my sister actually liked as they softened in the cream and filling).
