A delightful dessert full of flavor - The fresh berries really give a special taste to the pie, specially if they are picked by you. The Apple off sets the berries. loved by everyone

Directions

  1. Peel apples, and cut into thick slices. place in saucepan, adding enough water to cover and add the sugar.
  2. Simmer for a few minutes until the apples are just cooked but still a bit firm in the centre. drain and set to one side to cool.
  3. heat the oven to 220c.
  4. Roll out the pastry. place nearly all of the applies in a pie dish. scattering the blackberries evenly over the top sprinkle a dessert spoon of sugar over the berries , then place a layer of apple over that -- this is to stop the stain of the berries going through the pastry.
  5. Add the pastry and brush with a small amount of milk and drizzle a teaspoon or so of sugar over.
  6. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, until pastry is a light golden color.
  7. Note:.
  8. I make this pie with minimum pastry and replace the sugar with Splenda for my cousin who is diabetic.
  9. Serve hot or cold with either, light cream or Ice Cream.

I made this to take to a church potluck and all I got was rave reviews! :) The only thing I changed was the apples. I needed to use some home-canned apple pie filling - so did that. Thank you for sharing the recipe! I did bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes and 350 degrees for an additional 30 - 35 minutes - the way I usually bake my pies. Made for the February 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.

wow! this was sooo delicious!! made it for DH for father's day and he loved it! I added raspberries to the blackberries and apple. First time I've made a pie cooking the apples first, it worked quite well, but i don't really see the necessity. I used splenda but cut the amount in half we do like our pie a little tart. Also didn't agree with the baking time, 20 minutes was not enought to cook the pastery, I did my usual thing, 15 minutes at 400f degrees and 40 minutes at 350f degrees, perfectly cooked pastry. Even with what I have said it is worth the 5 stars for the flavour alone, really delish!! thanks for posting. PS sorry the photos of the pieces didn't turn out but I did get a good one of the whole pie. I should add that your photo of the piece is gorgeous and is what made me make the pie!!
