An End of Summer Blackberry Pie

Nothing marks the end of summer better than a fresh blackberry pie. 

I picked these berries from wild bushes behind my house, so I wasn't sure what to expect (the wild ones tend to be more seedy). It turned out perfect.

The filling was the perfect sweet/tart combination.

Use this dough recipe, it makes a fully covered top and a bottom. But if you want to do a fancy lattice top, simply slice the rolled out dough and weave them together (here's a tutorial you could use).


My blackberry filling - 

4 cups fresh blackberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons corn starch
1 tablespoon lemon juice
4 tbsp cold unsalted butter (cubed)

Brown sugar crumble - 

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
2 tbsp cold butter


• Mix the above mentioned ingredients (except the butter) into the berries and set aside for pie dough to be ready.
• Once filling has been placed into shell, cut the cubed butter into it and cover with lattice or regular pie dough cover.


  1. This is great! I love blackberries. I feel like the wild ones tend to have more flavor.


    1. I definitely agree with you. They are way more flavorful
