Cinnamon, Chocolate & Berry Pie Recipe

I had to go to a party last minute and forgot to make a dessert.  I looked in my fridge and saw I had mixed dark berries, whipping cream and pre-made pie crusts…this made everything easy.  Within the next 3o minutes I had an amazing dessert baked, prepped, topped and ready to it.  I’m calling it my cinnamon and chocolate dark berry pie with cinnamon whipped cream.   The reason I’m calling it dark berry is that it will taste amazing with almost any dark berries.

If you want an easy and fast dessert, this is one you have to try.  The recipe below is broken out into three parts.

  1. The crust
  2. The filling
  3. The whipped topping

cinnamon chocolate and berry pie

What you will need:

  • 1 and 1/2 to 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 pint of whipping cream
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1/4 bag of dark chocolate chips
  • Dark berries (I used blackberries and blueberries in this one)
  • Pie crust
  • Pie pan

1. The Pie Crust

Heat your oven to 400 degrees.  While it is heating place the pie crust into your pie tin and then add in the chocolate chips to the bottom.  If you don’t want to risk making it harder to cut (if you add too many chocolate chips) you can always add them into the pie filling mixture in section 2.   Once the oven is at 400 degrees, place the crust in until it turns golden brown (10 to 12 minutes).  Then remove and let it cool.

2. The Filling

Start by washing the berries and take place about 3/4 of them into a deep frying pan or medium sized pot that has been sitting on medium heat.  Now add in 1 and 1/2 cups of granulated sugar and let it heat up and melt down.  You’ll want to make sure you stir it so it doesn’t burn and cooks evenly.

Once they’ve melted together, add in 1 to 2 tablespoons of the ground cinnamon and squeeze half of a lemon’s juice in.  This is also a good time to reduce to a low to medium heat if you would rather cook the chocolate in the filling instead of onto the crust.

Now take the remaining berries and place them into the pie crust.  The last step is to pour the filling over the berries in the crust and then use a spatula to smooth it out.

3. The Cinnamon Whipped Cream

This is easy.  Pour 3/4 of a pint of whipping cream into a bowl and add in 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon (you can add more if it doesn’t taste strong enough for you later).  Now start whipping it with a whisk or a stand mixer.   Once it starts to thicken and look like whipped cream, start adding in the powdered sugar.  Keep adding powdered sugar until it is sweet enough.  You can also add more cinnamon so that it has the right mix to taste good for you.

Now take the whipped cream and pipe it onto the pie however you’d like.

The entire recipe took me less than 30 minutes to make and it ended up tasting amazing.  I highly recommend this one if you need a good all season dessert and don’t have much time.   Let me know if you try this recipe and how it worked for you.   Thank you again for reading!
