Oh I love this SO MUCH!!! It’s gorgeous!
Thank you Katerina! xoxoxo
I made this for the 4th and it was a huge success. Now I want to make 2 for a friends gathering of veterans but I will need to make them a couple days ahead. Any suggestions, freeze possibly?
Hi Donna, I have no idea if this pie would freeze well. I imagine that if you prepared it but didn’t bake it, and froze it raw, then baked it right before you needed it, that might work.
Love this idea! There were only four of us for the holiday, so I made a half-sized version by making an aluminum foil barrier on the sheet pan. It worked perfectly. Used a combination of raspberries and strawberries for the stripes, SO GOOD. I did have a little trouble with the blueberries because the instant tapioca didn’t dissolve completely. Not a big deal, I just stirred the berries around a little partway through baking when I noticed the problem. No one minded the occasional intact tapioca pearl when we were eating. For others making this, I would recommend cooking the blueberries briefly before adding them to the pie so that they can break down and more easily mix with the tapioca or cornstarch.
I’m a 74 yr-old disabled American woman who has lived in Israel for over 40 years. While I’m unable to make all of your recipes, I’ve loved the ones I can make, and often share them with a very close friend from high school (!) in Houston, who also loves them.Just wanted to share with you his response to the 4th of July pie:“WOW!! Don’t know whether to eat it or salute it!”All the best and have a great holiday!
Thank you Arlene, I love it!
I assume I could use a 12×17 sheet. Just wouldn’t need all of the filling.
Love to see if I could make this look as good as yours.
Hi Cathy, I think you could keep the same amount of filling, there’s room.
Hello. I am thinking of making this pie for the 4th. I have a friend who is diabetic so was thinking of using Truvia/Stevia or Splenda. Do you know what the ratio of the sugar substitute to sugar would be?
Hello Chriss, I do not. But perhaps someone else reading this does who could chime in?
I believe it’s a 1:1 ratio for sugar and Splenda.
I believe Splenda has baking instructions on the box.
i really want to try this for this July 4th. Invited to friends house.
I think I was confused by the right hand photo in step 3. Thinking about it, the rolled out piece is really just for one-half of the tray, right? It looks the size of the entire pan. Just a thought, maybe put the pan in the shot to show it is only for half? Right? I really enjoy your recipes! Thank you!!
Thanks for your feedback Ben! I can see where it would be confusing so I’ve removed the photo.
WOW! What a show stopper! Makes me want to get up and march around the kitchen!
I’ll join you! Singing “you’re a grand ole flag, you’re a high flying flag, and forever in peace may you wave..”
