Blackberry Pie will not last long at any occasion.  I made it on Saturday, this is Sunday, and there is one piece left.  Blackberries are such a favorite in my house.  We love anything with a blackberry in it! This blackberry pie recipe is delicious and makes a wonderful dessert or treat anytime.

Blackberry pie is easy and delicious.

2 (9 inch) pie shells, unbaked (You can make them yourself or use bought. I used Pillsbury frozen pie shells.)

4 1/2 cups fresh blackberries

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons butter or margarine

Milk and 1 teaspoon brown sugar for top of crust, Optional

Place bottom crust in your pie place. (Tip: I spray my pie plate with cooking spray before I add the crust. I think this makes the pie come out of the pan easier). Prick bottom crust with fork.  Mix all ingredients except butter,  milk and brown sugar in a large bowl with a spoon.  Pour into pie shell.  Cut butter in pieces on top of filling.  Place second pie shell on top and cut slits for steam to escape.  Very lightly brush just a tiny bit of milk on top of the shell and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of brown sugar. Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to 375 degrees and cook 20-25 more minutes until pie is brown on top. Let  cool before cutting. Makes one pie.  Enjoy!

Note: I think you could use frozen blackberries in this recipe, too.

    Mine came out watery. Followed directions exactly. Crust was perfect, lol

  2. I am planning on making this pie on Sunday. I have the 2 frozen pie shells myself…do you let the top one defrost before putting in on top? I am confused and want to make sure I do it right…thanks

    • The Southern Lady says:

      If you are using the Pillsbury frozen pie shells that come rolled up in the box follow the directions on the box and lay them out until you can unroll them. If you are just using a frozen pie shell that comes in a pan I don’t thaw those first. I just put it over the pie filling.

    Curious why you prick the bottom crust? Doesn’t it get soggy?

    • Molly Jaber says:

      Mine came out with tons of liquid in it ..and not really sweet enough. What did i do wrong?

      • The Southern Lady says:

        Did you use fresh blackberries? It should not be watery with that much flour added. Maybe, the blackberries were overly ripe. I always taste my blackberries before adding to see if I think they are sweet enough. If not very sweet add more sugar.
