Easy Blackberry Pie- Made With Love

Hello, Blog readers! Don’t know about you, but I am sure looking forward to spring! Where I live, all the birds are coming back- to 8 inches of snow on the ground and highs of 20 degrees. Brr… poor things. Sorry birds, come back later when there are berries and bugs for you to eat! And speaking of berries- I know the prime time for berry pies is the summer when they (the berries) are in season, but I love making them in the winter as well because they just warm up your soul and remind you of the warm weather and sunshine to come! I used frozen berries in this recipe, but feel free to use fresh, in-season berries as well. And don’t worry about being a pie-crust genius! I prefer to make my own, but if you’re short on time you can totally use a store bought crust. Alright, let’s make some delicious pie! Note: I had some extra pie crust dough, so I rolled it out flat and cut out some cute little hearts to decorate the pie in addition to the crumble topping. This is completely optional!

Ingredients

  • -For The Pie Filling-
  • 4 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour (tapioca flour works too!)
  • 1 unbaked 9″ pie shell
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • -For The Crumble Topping-
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine 3 1/2 cups berries with the sugar and flour. Spoon the mixture into an unbaked pie crust. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup berries on top of the sweetened berries. Sprinkle the lemon juice on top. In a small bowl, combine the crumble topping ingredients and use a pastry blender and your fingers to evenly distribute the butter until it is combined and the texture is fine. Sprinkle this mixture on top of your pie and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake for 30 to 35 more minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the crust is golden brown. Let cool thoroughly before serving and enjoy! Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

I really hope you enjoyed this recipe and thank you so much for reading my post! Feel free to like, follow and comment! I’d love to know what you think. Have a wonderful day! -Maxine
