Blackberry Pie


It’s 100 degrees outside and I should be in a pool somewhere with a cold beverage in my hand.  But because I’m me, I decided it would be a brilliant idea to bake a pie.

So I did.

A blackberry one.

The recipe comes from my mother in law, but I’m not entirely sure if it’s her recipe or her mom’s recipe. Either way, you get the idea. It’s not mine.

Blackberry Pie

You’ll need:
1 quart blackberries
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp corn starch
2 pie crusts (remember, this is me we’re talking about, so ready made pie crusts it is)

To make:
rinse blackberries and pat dry
in a saucepan, combine blackberries and just enough water to prevent sticking.
Bring slowly to a boil. Add 1 cup sugar and continue to heat.
In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar and cornstarch. If mix is too thick, add a small amount of
water from blackberry mix to make the consistency thinner.
Add to the berry mix.
Cook til the berry mixture just begins to thicken. Pour into pie crust. Use second crust to cover the pie.
Pinch edges to seal. Make about 5 slits in the top.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until top is browned.
Let cool.

Enjoy with a heaping scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

Oh yeah, it’s definitely summertime.
