  • Rinse blackberries in colander, dry on papertowels.

  1. the milk and butter technique for the topping of the pie crust works soo good, that's what my mom and i have done for years. best way to make a pie!!
  2. This was the first pie I ever made. My DH (who is super picky) loved this and said that he hasn't had such a good pie in a very long time. I was surprised by how easy pie is to I uderstand the saying "easy as pie". :o)
  3. We get tons of blackberries where I live so I had to try this. Great taste and easy to make. Used Means' Classic Pie Crust Recipe #26205. Thanks for sharing!
  4. My DS picked a gallon of blackberries this morning to make him a pie. I chose this recipe for it's simplicity and ease. This made a wonderful pie. It wasn't too sweet or too tart, just right. I did use Splenda in place of the sugar. Now we have to pick more berries! LOL
  5. Perfect recipe! I used a crust mix from a box....jiffy brand. And my 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon was actually about 1/2 tsp. (we love cin.) I added 1 tsp. of cornstarch just because the berries had a lot of juice in the freezer bag. I am going to have to pick a LOT more berries to freeze now that I have this in the cookbook!Thanks, Wildflour!
