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!

Very easy and delicious! Here are the changes I made. I was in a hurry so used a Pilsbury refrigerated pie crust (not the frozen kind). I also used frozen blackberries as they are not in season here yet. I used 1/2 the amount of cinnamon. I brushed the top crust with a little water and sprinkled some sugar for a nice glaze. Read More

Tasted great but it didn't set up at all. I don't think there is enough flour in the berry mixture because it was extremely watery. I would try increasing the flour to 1/2 c. next time which another recipe called for with the same amount of berries. Read More

This recipe isn't hard to make and the butter crust is excellent with this pie. I will decrease the cinnamon to 1/4 t. next time I make it. The kids are coming home this weekend so I'm picking more berries tomorrow It looks like this recipe will become my new favorite Wild Blackberry Pie recipe. Read More

Very good pie recipe. Tasted even better after sitting in the fridge for a few days. A couple things I would do differently: leave out the cinnamon (a bit overpowering) and add another tablespoon or two of water to the crust dough. All in all this is a great recipe to use when you are trying to figure out what to do with piles of blackberries. Recommended: served heated a la mode with vanilla ice cream. Read More

Excellent and extremely simple recipe. I actually used a pre-made pie crust to make this even more simple and the results were fantastic! This is the 2nd pie in 4 days I've made using this recipe.....my family can't get enough! Read More

Quite tasty and easily prepared I live in Germany and our German neighbors never had a pie before so this was a wonderful way to introduce the wild blackberries(grown in our back yard)in a new and wonderful taste in a new form. Sandra Read More
