Our neighbor brought over some freshly, handpicked blackberries a couple of weeks ago. David told me that he wanted blackberry pie...his fave. (We've been married 20 years, that was news to me.)
So I went on all recipes dot com and made this::
Never mind that I was short on berries and never mind that my pie crust isn't pretty, but the end taste? Oh my word! It was delicious!!
4 cups fresh blackberries
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 recipe for pastry 9" double pie crust (or use frozen)
2 tbsp milk
1/4 cup white sugar
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Combine 3 1/2 cups berries with the sugar and flour. Spoon the mixture into an unbaked pie shell. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup berries on top of the sweetened berries, and cover with the top crust. Seal, crimp the edges, and cut vents in the top crust for steam escape.
3. Brush the top crust with milk, and sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar.
4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce the temp of the oven to 375 degrees F and bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
