I just thought about doing this yesterday while baking pretzels. I'm going to try these berry shortcakes soon.

...and actually, I think the Eggnog Ice cream sounds good with the berries!

Me too, June!

I have frozen berries around all the time too for smoothies, to put on pancakes and biscuits, and to top with whipped cream for a simple dessert.

I use frozen berries in the same manner as Pytnplace. Makes a delicious drink. But there are some really great ideas here. Thank you all.

I haven't the time to read all entries, but I love to make a trifle when I have extra fruit. I layer angel food cake (or pound cake), fruit, and fake whipped cream (dream whip: at our ages and my friend ships, non-dairy is the way to go). A bit of booze drizzled over the layers. Yummy yum.

during any time of the year, this is an easy one for me.
the frozen fruit whether it be berry's or just plain fruit, I use in my smoothies for breakfast.

Actually.. those fruits together would make a good fruit salad, so they should make a good pie too.. I'd try it..it's something new and creative and I'm sure no ones added mango to the mixed berry pie recently.. I'd go for it.
Maybe research some seasonings that go with both varieties of fruit...
