  • Rinse blackberries in colander, dry on papertowels.

  • Fold edge of top crust under edge of bottom crust and press together to seal.
  • Stick four toothpicks down through the points (folds) of steam vents on the top crust to hold in place while baking.
  • Crimp edge of pie crust all the way around.
  • Brush top with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Place pie on foil-lined cookie sheet to catch any spills.
