This gooseberry pie recipe has some of the best pie filling I’ve ever tasted! It’s sweet and tart, just like your Grandma used to make!


  • 1 pint gooseberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 egg yolks

Pie crust topping

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small saucepan, add gooseberries and water. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Drain off some of the excess water, then return to the burner.
  3. Add the sugar, butter and flour, continue to simmer.
  4. Beat egg yolks and pour slowly into saucepan. Cook on medium-low heat until thick.
  5. Pour filling into still frozen pre-made pie crust.
  6. Top with a second pie crust, cutting slits to vent (or cut for lattice top).
  7. Brush the pie crust with egg whites. Sprinkle sugar on top.
  8. Cover the crusts of the pie with aluminum foil and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and bake for another 15-25 minutes, until the crust is browned.
