Blackberries are in season and chances are you have come across an abundance of them. Now that you have all these blackberries, the question is what to do with them? Blackberry pie is the perfect choice to make good use of your fresh blackberries. Of course, if you wanted to use frozen blackberries those would work as well. This recipe is so simple, inexpensive and has very few ingredients. You will have a fresh blackberry pie out of the oven in no time at all. You could make your own pie crust but I would recommend using the Pillsbury pre-made crust. In my opinion, it’s just as good as anything you can make, and it’s already made for you. This pie goes great served with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy.
(Makes 8 Servings)
- 4 cups fresh blackberries
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 (9 inches) double pie crust
- 2 tablespoons milk
- ¼ cup white sugar
- Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. Press the bottom part of the crust into a greased 9” pie dish. In a large bowl combine 3 ½ cups of blackberries with the sugar and flour. Spoon the mixture into the pie shell. Spread the remaining ½ cup of blackberries on top of the sweetened berries. Cover with the top of the crust and crimp the edges to seal. Brush the top of the crust with milk and sprinkle with white sugar. With a knife or fork make small slits in the top of the pie crust.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes reduce the temperature of the oven to 375 degrees and bake for another 20 to 25 minutes.
