Fresh Blackberry Pie

I love going to the local fruit farms during the spring-summer months. The local Strawberry farm always sales Blackberries at the end of the Strawberry season. The blackberries are always so big, plump, and juicy.

I have made blackberry cobbler, but my family really loves pies! So I wanted to make a sweet pie out of the blackberries that I recently purchased. This recipe is so sweet, a little tart, and so good that thankfully it makes two pies because they were gone in one hour!


  1. 1Pre-heat oven to 350
  2. 2Place both (Not FROZEN) pie shells on a baking sheet.
  3. 3Mix fresh blackberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest, butter, all together gently not to mash berries.
  4. 4Divide mixture between each pie shell and pour into pie shells.
  5. 5Roll out the rolled pie dough, and cut into strip and place criss-cross, on top of each pies.
  6. 6Then take the 3 tablespoons of melted butter and brush onto the criss-cross dough that is on top of each pie shell. Then sprinkle a little sugar to give it a sparkle effect.
  7. 7Cover the edges of pie with Aluminum foil. Or you may have a pie shield. This will help prevent the edges from burning.
  8. 8Cook for 1-hour. Keep checking it, your oven may cook quicker, but it usually takes 45 minutes to one hour.
