Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll out one crust, and place in a 9 inch pie plate. Roll out top crust, and set aside.

  • In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, tapioca, and cinnamon. Add blackberries and apple slices. Toss gently to coat without mashing the berries. Let stand for 20 minutes.

  • Spoon filling into pastry lined pan. Dot with butter. Moisten the edge of the pastry with water. Cover with top crust; trim and crimp edge. Cut a few slits in the top to allow steam to escape during baking. Cover edge with foil to prevent over-browning.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil, and continue baking for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Cool on wire rack.

This pie according to my husband is awesome. The apples really do help smooth the texture. I didn't have any tapioca so I added about a tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken the berry/apple mixture. I will definitely be making this recipe again. Read More

A little too tart for what I'm used to in an apple pie. Next time I think I would try to use a sweeter berry and probably one without seeds:) Read More

LOVE LOVE LOVE this pie. This is by far the best pie I have ever made!! Your berries should be naturally sweet or they can taste tart in the pie....still good. I add a little extra cinnamon and some vanilla. It is perfect. Look forward to baking this many more times. ps....I also use the Best Ever Pie Crust it is so easy and fast to make. I use half butter half shortening for the dough and it is delicious!! Read More

I come from a family of blackberry pie fans! Grew up picking them every year in anticipation of the great pies mom would make. My son likes blackberry pies but not all the seeds. Many people feel the same way-if this describes you then this is the perfect recipe. You can hardly taste the apples they just give a little extra texture. We all loved this. I made a few for the freezer too! Read More

The description says it all! The apple and blackberry flavors blend together well. My regular blackberry pie is always too seedy; the apples help make the pie more smooth. I will most likely make a few more pies to refreeze so I can enjoy the fresh taste of summer in the middle of a Chicago winter! The only change I will make is to thicken up the juice; my pie turned out a little runnier than I like. Great recipe! Read More

Love this recipe. I chop the apple slices into thirds so the apple kind of gets lost in with the blackberries. Nice not to have as many seeds as traditional blackberry pie. I use 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar just personal preference. I have been asked for the recipe by several friends so I'd say it's a hit! Read More

This was really good & easy to make! I used raspberry instead and Granny apples. I didn't have tapioca so after the fruits soaked in the sugar then the leftover juice in the bowl was mixed with a little cornstarch powder to thicken. Will definitely be making this again. Read More

The blackberries do dominate the flavor of this pie-- a good thing if you love blackberries. Made this with Splenda Mix and you couldn't tell the difference. Everyone loved it! Will definitely make again. Read More
