Tupelo Honey Cafe Triple Berry Pie

According to Joel, "This pie makes cheesecake jealous!" It is amazing and some have said it is why pies are made at all (okay..Joel said that too!). One of the people we shared it with said it was the best pie ever. I tell you this not to toot my own horn but to say, "Buy this book!" It is so great. And the authors aren't even paying me to say that.

 You can use fresh or frozen berries. I like that flexibility because it means you can make it any time of the year.
 I used a pre-made graham cracker crust. I hate to admit that but I was in a hurry. It did not hurt the pie in any way.
