Bumbleberry Pie with Custard Topping

Bumbleberry Pie with Lemon Custard Recipe Today I am sharing a recipe for a special two-layer bumbleberry pie.  This version with two layers and a lemon crust is spectacular enough for a special occasion.  The berries are hidden as a delicious surprise until the pie is cut.

Individual Sized Gugelhupf Cakes
