Directions

  1. Puree two cups of the blackberries in a blender until liquid. Strain out the seeds, and pour into a saucepan. Whisk in 1 1/4 cups sugar. Cook over a medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly and scraping bottom. Keep at a boil for 5 minutes, and then remove from heat.
  2. Mix cornstarch and brandy in a cup. When well mixed, whisk into pan; stir until mixture returns to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in the nutmeg and cinnamon. Check the consistency of the mixture; it should be like a thin pudding. If necessary, add cornstarch and water mixed at a 2:1 ratio to thicken.
  3. Fill the pie shell with the remaining two cups of blackberries. Pour the blackberry puree over the fresh berries, covering evenly. Use either strips of dough criss crossed to cover, or cover with a solid sheet of dough with slits cut in it. Dust with sugar on top.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) oven for 35 minutes, or until crust is browned.

In the past I've had problems getting my blackberry pies to thicken. I think it is because I use fresh berries, not frozen and they have more juice in them. This recipie take care of that nicely...

This pie is very good when spices are reduced to 1/8 or 1/4 tsp of nutmeg 1/2 tsp of cinnamon

Love this recipe and have made it often. I replace the brandy with Lemon Juice and leave out the spices. Excellent pie, never left overs!!

This pie looks great and has a wonderful texture, but the spices are overwhelming. Even after cutting the nutmeg down to 1 teaspoon. It is like eating a mouthful of cinnamon. I had to throw out...
