The pie is runny because the berries are not thickened prior to being put into the pie shell. Here's a simple twist on this recipe. With these revisions, it's not runny or too sweet. First, combine 4 cups of berries (with or without stems) with 1/2 cup of water and bring to boil and heat about 10 minutes or so. In meantime, sift 1.5 tbs. flour, 1.5 tbs. cornstarch, and 3/4 cups sugar. Add to the berry mixture, stirring all the while, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Cool and then place in pie shell. See the picture of our mulberry pie, not runny at all. Our family loved it with these revisions.
