Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; stir in flour to make a smooth paste. Whisk water, white sugar, brown sugar, and lemon juice into butter mixture. Bring to a simmer and whisk constantly until mixture is thick, about 3 minutes. Stir 6 blackberry halves into sauce, reduce heat to low, and continue cooking while you complete remaining steps. Stir sauce occasionally.

  • Line a 9-inch pie dish with a crust. Place apples and remaining blackberries into crust. Cut remaining crust into strips about 1 inch wide. Weave pie crust strips into a lattice crust on top of the pie; pinch ends of strips to edge of bottom crust to seal. Spoon hot blackberry sauce over pie, letting it soak through the openings in the top crust. Place pie onto a baking sheet to catch drips.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until crust is golden brown and sauce is bubbling, 35 to 45 more minutes.

This pie is absolutely awesome! I did use different apples. I found an apple tree in my backyard; they were similar to gala apples I suppose but they were still tart because they weren't fully ripe. They worked just fine. The apples soak up all the delicious berry goodness. I did use quite a few more blackberries in the sauce than the recipe called for and I am glad I did. Delicious. Made two- both were gone within 3 days. Definitely baking again soon. Read More

Very tasty pie! Made it for thanksgiving and it was a huge hit! The only thing I did differently is I did NOT pour the sauce over the top crust I poured it over the apples then placed the crust on top. The only thing I would do differently next time is to use less of the sauce mixture because the juice from the apples and black berries make it watery inside the pie. I would also coat the apples and black berries a sugar/flour mixture to help thicken the sauce while it s cooking. I think I d like it a lot more if the juice stayed put in the pie instead of free flowing out of the pie when you slice it. But either way it s a really tasty pie even my 5 year old grand daughter tore it up and loved it! Read More

Excellent! Made it according to recipe except for that 6 blackberries halved thing. I put half of the blackberries in the pie with the apples and half in the sauce because that what is the only thing that made sense to me. Author needs to correct that portion of the recipe. Otherwise especially warm with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream on top it's almost worth the chiggers I got picking the blackberries. Very good pie. Read More

This was delicious! I was nervous about not adding cinnamon to my apple pie, so I did sprinkle some into my sauce. I will definitely make this one again! Read More
