Easy Blackberry Pie Recipe

Blackberry Pie Recipe

Growing up, every summer we would go pick blackberries in a wild patch a few miles from my home.  It wasn’t always the best experience, we had to be up at dawn, before the heat, we got all sorts of scratches (the weren’t the thorn-less variety) and there were spiders…

This one particular time, when I was like 6 or 7,  we were all done picking and climbing out of the bushes.  But, I saw the perfect berry- it was HUGE and luscious and beautiful.  My bucket was full, but I just had to grab that one last berry.  And when I did, this huge black and yellow spider monstrosity ( I can’t make myself put a picture on here, I will get all creepy crawly… but if you wanna see the type click on the link) came running out at me.  It scared me so badly, I fell into the bushes, got all scrapped up and lost all but a quarter of my berries.  I was SO upset.

But, the sweet part was my family pulled me out of the bushes,  and my brothers poured a little of their berries in my bucket till it was full again to make me feel better.  While the spider part still creeps me out… when I think about how my brothers (who picked on me so thoroughly as a child) showed such kindness, it just makes me love my family so much.  Good times!

Anyway, enough reminiscing.  The point of the story is that me and blackberries go way back.  I LUV BLACKBERRIES.  And this month we sorta have a  theme going when it comes to recipes – PIE so I thought I would keep it up.

I adapted this recipe from a cobbler recipe out of cooking light magazine a few years ago, and it worked so well, I haven’t changed it since.  Also, since I no longer live next to any blackberry bushes, I have found that a bag of frozen berries, is perfect any time of year to make this pie!

Blackberry Pie 

Makes one 9″

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Prepare your pie crust, line one 9″ pie pan, and roll out enough dough for a top. (or purchase a 2 pie crust package freezer package)

In a bowl combine:

3/4 – 1 cup sugar

3 T flour

dash salt

1 – 1lb bag frozen blackberries (or blue…)

1-2 tsp lemon juice

Fold together, gently.  The flour and sugar won’t necessarily melt, it doesn’t matter.  Pour into the prepared pie shell.

Cut 2 Tbsp of butter into small squares and distribute over the top of the berries.  Cover with a top crust, either a solid pice with a few slits or lattice, which ever you prefer.  And  bake for 40-45 minutes.

Serve hot or cold!  Both are great!

Okay, then What are you all up to?  What are you making for the holidays?  I would love to know!

  1. If I use frozen berries, do they need to be thawed?
    What about using fresh berries. I can still het blackberries at my produce store here in SoCal.

    1. Rebecca, I never thaw mine, I use them right out of the bag frozen! SO easy! And of course, you lucky duck, if you can get fresh berries go for it, just be REALLY gentle when tossing in the flour and sugar etc….

    1. Carol, interesting question. I just looked up somethings online and found you have to warm them, then press them through and fine mesh. You could try that i guess and see if that works. πŸ™‚

  2. Love this recipe I used a bag of blackberries and a bag of blueberries together and came up with an amazing pie.
    I can relate to your berry picking story. Brings back fond memories of happy times. Thank you.

  3. That’s a garden orb spider. Harmless and it eats the bad bugs. These are friendly ones!!!!

    1. I made my recipe to the letter and it’s really runny, very sad as its still sitting very wet in fridge. Not sure how to salvage this pie and enjoy it. Hope our recipe poste host can help us both, and fix our runny pies 😞

      1. Hi Veronica — the filling will be a little runny until it’s baked and the flour thickens with time and the heat of the oven, so bake it up and let me know how it goes πŸ™‚
