Wild Blackberry Pie


Wild blackberries make a perfect filling in this pie recipe. When my mom was a little girl, all of the mothers in the neighborhood would take turns making this pie for all of the kids. A whole pie would disappear in about five minutes — from first cut to last bite!

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • teaspoon salt

  • 4 cups fresh blackberries, rinsed and drained

  1. Make the pastry dough: Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter. Add boiling water to the flour mixture. Stir until mixture comes together in a ball. Divide dough in half and roll out two crusts. Place the bottom crust into a 9-inch pie pan.
