Did you ever watch cooking shows on television and wonder how they keep their kitchens so neat and tidy? Yes me too. When I cook and bake, my kitchen is a mess. There are measuring spoons everywhere. There is flour in areas no where even near where I was standing. I go through a ton of cleaning products trying to clean up after myself and honestly, it is exhausting. At a recent Target trip, I found the new The Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth.
Being how the Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths are fully washable and reusable, I figured it would be a great new product to try. A few weeks ago we were out with some friends and one mentioned how much she wanted pie. A half hour discussion about pie led me dying to make a seasonal pie like a Triple Berry Pie! I picked up everything I needed while I was shopping at Target. I love saving money with my Carthwheel app and right now you can save on the Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths at Target from 6/19-6/25 with this Cartwheel offer.
The Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth combines the best of a high quality dish cloth with the power of Scotch-Brite® scrubbing dots for a quicker and easier clean.
Triple Berry Pie
To make the delicious filling of the Triple Berry Pie, you need to start with about 6 cups of berries. You can use fresh or frozen and a mix of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries. I just used a bag of Simply Balanced Triple Berry Blend.
Add the berries to a large stockpot and then add 1/2 cup sugar and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Stir to combine and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes until the berries start to get bubbly and juicy.
Carefully remove about a half a cup of the juice from the stock pot and add it to a bowl. Mix in 4 tablespoons of cornstarch until smooth.
Add the cornstarch bowl back to the pot of berries and add in 4 tablespoons of butter.
Stir the berry mixture together, carefully not to mash any berries and simmer about 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
Now, a note about pie crust. My initial thought was a brave one and I really wanted to make my own pie crust. But, there is something about pie crust that brings me to tears every single time. So, I am here to tell you there is no shame at all in buying your favorite brand of pre-made pie crust.
When the berries finish cooking, roll out your pie crust into a nice pie plate. Be sure to butter the bottom of the plate before putting the crust in though. Pour in your berries and then top with the second pie crust. Be sure to make some slits in the top for venting. My mother has a funny story about forgetting venting that I am sure the Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths would have been perfect for.
Brush the top of the pie with an egg white and sprinkle with sugar on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes. Half way through baking, take the pie out and cover the edges with tinfoil so that they do not burn. Let your pie cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.

Now let’s talk about how I am going to clean up this mess.
If you remember, we added sugar and lemon juice to our berries, which made a very sticky mess.
Thankfully, I bought the Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths! The Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths feature two sides with scrubbing dots technology on one side originating from their stay clean sponges. We have an electric oven with a glass stove top, so I really need to be carefully with what I use on it to clean. The new Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths offer non-scratch scrubbing power with the wiping and drying functions of a dish cloth. The dish cloths are available in 2 packs in gray, mint, coral, and navy for $4.99 at Target.
Now that I have a sparkling clean kitchen, I can mess it up again when we cut into the pie and enjoy some ice cream on top!
