Blackberry Pie

As promised, here's the Blackberry Pie recipe! This pie is just oh so very very good!  I put a scoop of blackberry ice cream on top and that just made it that much more over the top delicious.  You can find the blackberry ice cream recipe here.  My sister is becoming quite the baker.  Or as I call her "my little baker".  Family is wonderful! You have to come up with interesting nicknames for the ones you love huh!  I think next time she makes it I'll try not to stampede the kitchen like a herd of buffalo with my enthusiasm lol





Blackberry Pie

Ingredients You'll Need:

  • Blackberries, fresh or frozen (2.5 cups for a 9-inch pie)
  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • 2 pie crusts, homemade or prepackaged
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water


Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Put blackberries in a heavy saucepan with sugar, and simmer until the juice and sugar melt together and reach a mild boil.  If it doesn't look like the juice is coming out don't be afraid to press down on them a little bit.  This'll roughly take 10-15 minutes. 
  • Mix two tablespoonfuls of cornstarch in a 1/4 cup of cold water until it is completely melted. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the boiling blackberries, stirring constantly, while continuing to cook on low heat until the blackberry filling thickens.
  • Bake your pre-made pie crust about nine or ten minutes in a 325 degree oven, until lightly browned.  I have a really great pie crust recipe, but haven't had the chance to put it up.  More often than not I do lean toward pre-made pie crusts simply to save a little time.  The pie crust pictured however; is homemade.
  • Remove the pie crust from the oven, and spoon the blackberry mixture into it, filling to about one fourth inch from the top.  Roll another pie crust over the top of the berry mixture, crimping the edges all the way around to form a seal. Pierce the top crust with a fork, take a little melted butter and brush it on the crust, and sprinkle it with sugar.
  • Place the pie in an oven preheated to 325 degrees, and cook until the top crust is golden brown, about 25 minutes.  
 Remove from the oven, and let cool for the filling to firm up.  About 30 minutes should do it.  Try to be patient, I assure you, the wait will be worth it =)
