Blackberry Pie III

Blackberry Pie III

Carol

Blackberries are plentiful where I am, and they taste great. Here is a recipe for such a pie. The pioneers thought that blackberries were a weed. Gradually it came into cookbooks for medicinal purposes - blackberry syrup for cholera and summer complaint. This nuisance became very popular, and the berry is unique and very tasty.

Complete success first time with company. One guest ate half the pie himself. I added 1 more tblespn of flour and used Splenda instead of real sugar. I used wild fresh picked, that morning berries. Extremely easy to make with great results. Thank you.

Wonderfully simple and very tasty recipe. Only change was that I needed to bake it longer than the stated time.

This pie has a great taste - just the right combination of sweet and tart. (I used wild berries.) The lemon juice adds a zing - but it doesn't taste lemony. It was pretty runny, though. More like a cobbler. Maybe my berries were extra juicy. I'll increase the flour by 1/3 the next time. Also, the edges burned quickly at 450 degrees. I may either bake it all at one temp - or at 400 for the first period instead of 450. But overall...a very nice pie.
