“Deluxe Blackberry Pie, nice and thick, made the old-fashioned way.” - by Carlo Zaskorski
Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch pie
- Puree two cups of the blackberries in a blender until liquid. Strain out the seeds, and pour into a saucepan. Whisk in 1 1/4 cups sugar. Cook over a medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly and scraping bottom. Keep at a boil for 5 minutes, and then remove from heat.
- Mix cornstarch and brandy in a cup. When well mixed, whisk into pan; stir until mixture returns to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in the nutmeg and cinnamon. Check the consistency of the mixture; it should be like a thin pudding. If necessary, add cornstarch and water mixed at a 2:1 ratio to thicken.
- Fill the pie shell with the remaining two cups of blackberries. Pour the blackberry puree over the fresh berries, covering evenly. Use either strips of dough criss crossed to cover, or cover with a solid sheet of dough with slits cut in it. Dust with sugar on top.
- Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) oven for 35 minutes, or until crust is browned.

"In the past I've had problems getting my blackberry pies to thicken. I think it is because I use fresh berries, not frozen and they have more juice in them. This recipie take care of that nicely. The ..." See moreonly problem is the large amount of spices mask the berry flavor. I plan to make it with just a little bit of lemon juice/zest."
"I had never made a pie before and this one was amazing!!! By blending and straining the berries, there were alot less seeds and the texture was nice and rich. I had lots of fresh blackberries from the..." See more farmers market. I took the pie to work and it disappeared! I took some other people's advice and cut down on the spices just a little and I also added cloves, which made the pie taste wonderful. I didn't have blackberry brandy so I used a little juice from a fruit cocktail cup. It was absolutely wonderful! Don't hesitate to make your pie this way."
