Ok, hate to say this but it just didn't set. I should have been suspicious that there is no thickening agent, but I don't know anything about pies -- I guess it could just be my bad pie-making. It tasted good, but over ice cream not under it. needs some cornstarch or flour...

Like a few other reviewers, my pie did not set at all. I'm not sure how much more corn starch to use to make a thicker pie, but it must be more. Also, the pie filling was far sweeter than I prefer. The lemon zest was a good addition though.

my husbands first reaction was... i like this! my cousin who was having a meal with us, loved it too, because she is diabetic, I used Splenda instead of sugar.... it worked well. I will defiantly be making this again... the blackberries i used had been picked by me the day before, and I think fresh ones make this pie even better. thanks so much for sharing!
