Blackberry Pie Recipe
Pre-made store bought pie crust
3 tablespoons of flour
1 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of orange zest
3 cups of blackberries
2 tablespoons of blackberry brandy
2 tablespoons of sugar
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Sift 3 tablespoons of flour with 1 cup of sugar and mix lightly with the orange zest. Add the 3 cups of blackberries into the mixture then pour into the pie dish.
You can either cover the pie filing with the top crust (if you do so make sure you cut vents in the crust to allow steam to escape). If you decide to cover, brush the top crust with some melted butter and sprinkle some sugar evenly on top.
You can also take the top crust and cut it into strips and then make a lattice on top of the pie filling. Brush the top crust with melted butter and sprinkle on a very light coat of sugar approximately 2 tablespoons. This makes an amazing presentation when done correctly.
Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees and bake for about another 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. When you take the blackberry pie out of the oven pour the brandy into the vents or between the lattice.
If you want to make the blackberry pie go over the top, add a dollop of whipped cream on top and a scoop of vanilla ice cream along side. Then serve with some of the brandy.
