  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a 9 inch deep dish pie pan with one of the crusts.
  2. Place the blackberries in a large bowl. Stir together the sugar, flour, and salt. Sprinkle over the berries, and toss to coat. Pour into the pie crust. Dot with butter. Place the other pie crust over the top, and secure to the bottom crust by pressing with a fork, or fluting with your fingers. Cut a design in the top crust with a sharp knife to vent steam.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the top crust is browned. Let cool to almost room temperature before serving to allow the filling to set.

This was a very good pie but, it was really REALLY sweet. I used frozen blackberries just barely thawed so that when I tossed them in the mixture they wouldn't get mashed up. I also added 2 tbs...

This pie was soooo delicious, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream I was in heaven. I used 1/4 cup of cornstarch instead of flour and an extra cup of berries. The only thing I found to be a little ...

When I make blackberry pie (my favorite), I like this recipe best for making the inside. I find it MUCH tastier when I make my own crust, though. It's not as hard as it sounds!
