Blackberry Pies
I was going to post a different recipe today, but then I went blackberry picking with my nephew. Yeah, he is a convincing boy! As we were walking home, we were thinking of all the blackberry treats we could make. After some convincing, we decided on these because we had all the ingredients on hand (and because Aunt Lauren didn’t want to make a trip to the store!)

OH.MY.WORD.

These are good!

Well, there really is no pie out there I don’t like, but this one is different. It’s basically a blackberry cobbler filling in a pie. (Do you recall my love of cobblers? If not, read this….and then this.) They are life altering and could bring about world peace.

Now a cobbler packed into a pie? Not only do we get world peace, but we all become buddy-buddy, making each other s’mores singing kumbaya around the fire. While simultaneously eating this pie.

If that doesn’t sound like heaven then I don’t know what does!

Blackberry Pies

Now a few of you have expressed concern about making berry filled pies and to be honest, it can be a little finicky. But, I’m gonna let you in on my ‘kitchen science’ that keep my pies coming out perfectly from the oven every time. (Don’t be scared…it’s pretty easy!)

First things first:  Are your berries ripe or underripe? If they are ripe, then they are most likely sweet and juicy. Underripe fruit means they are probably tart with fewer juices. Based on this you can determine how much sugar and flour you want to add in. The sugar sweetens, the flour thickens. Sweet fruit means less sugar, more flour. Tart fruit means more sugar, less flour. That’s it! It takes a little bit of trial and error, but after one or two pies, you’ll be good to go.

Blackberry Pies

This recipe is based on fruit that was semi-sweet and moderately juicy. These blackberries weren’t at their peak because it’s the beginning of the season. So this recipe reflects that. It’s a really good starting point for experimenting with your berry pies! I really hope you start experimenting because these are so totally worth it!

Happy Wednesday!

      That sucks! 45 minutes is a big commitment for fruit picking! We have raspberries on our property and blackberries growing wild up and down our street, so we’re totally spoiled!

    Lauren, I wish I could pick blackberries here, they are my favorite! Your little pies are adorable and I’m sure delicious!

  2. Rachel @ the Avid Appetite

    These look simply beautiful! I’m not particularly a blackberry fan, but perhaps it’s because I never think to buy them. I love this idea for any sort of berry!

  3. Mary

    These look absolutely fantastic. My husband loves blackberries and I think this would be a special treat for him!! What is the great looking recipe at the top of your blog (looks like pie with fudge & caramel drizzle & cherry)?? It looks amazing!!!!! Thanks!

    oh Lauren, that looks so pretty and delicious. I think I’d be scared to eat it in fear of spoiling the perfect pie. A work of art!
