Blackberry Sour Cream Pie

"An easy, tasty summer pie to make. Take advantage of those wonderful little berries at your farmers market. A comment from another member: If there is a tendency for too much juice in the pie, Ive found that adding tapioca roughly 2 tablespoons to the berries before putting into the pie shell will correct the problem. Of course you should like tapioca to do this."

  1. It is blackberry season here in Oregon so I thought I would try this recipe. This did not work very well as a pie. The sour cream does not mix with the berries during baking, so you end up with a some very juicy berries on bottom and a soaked crust. The top part is good where the berries and sour cream mix and the crumbs on top are really a nice touch. Probably best to mix berries and sour cream before adding them to the pie shell. Adding corn starch rather than flour would probably work better as well. I used a standard pie crust, this might work best with a graham cracker crust instead. All in all, this recipe needs a bit of work but should be worth the effort.
  2. This pie is out of this world! My berries are a bit juicier tha normal and I will need to add a bit more flour next time. I wonder if this would freeze well?
  3. I made this pie for a family reunion and it was gone in a flash. I used fresh blackberries. I increased the flour to 5 tablespoons and added two tablespoons of cornstarch. It was not runny at all.
  4. I make this recipe with blueberries. I found it in "The Southern Living Cookbook". I love it. It works perfectly for me every time, though sometimes, I reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup if the blueberries are extremely ripe and sweet. I do always use fresh blueberries. My elderly next door neighbor asked me for the recipe--only recipe of mine that she ever asked for--that's a true compliment in my book!!
  5. My mother in law gave me this exact recipe years and years ago. I add a flour/sugar/tapioca mixture to the berries to thicken the berries.
