My dad went blackberry picking down by his office and tasked me to make some pies. Well, I made two blackberry pies. We had a pre-made pie crust, but I did make one from scratch. We kept the homemade pie and my dad took the other one to his office. 🙂
If you haven’t seen our pie crust recipe then you should go look at it now! It’s the best one we’ve found and it’s simple and pretty much foolproof.
Here’s the recipe I used for the filling. (I would recommend serving with vanilla ice-cream and a cup of milk, but you could always use frozen yogurt if you wanted to have less calories.)
4 cups fresh blackberries
3/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
Cinnamon (to taste, 1/2 Tablespoon)
1/8 teaspoon salt
a few drops of lemon juice
1. Place blackberries in bowl.
2. Pour in sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.
3. Combine by mixing with spoon.
4. Place in pie crust.
5. Dot with lemon juice.
6. Complete crust and bake the pie!
