Blackberry Pie is a homemade pie crust filled with a mixture of fresh blackberries, sugar, and flour, then baked to golden brown. It is simple to make, but far from simple in taste with the flaky crust and a sweet and slightly tart filling. Add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream for an indulgent (and delicious) touch! For another fruit pie, check out my Cherry Pie, too!

Ingredients & Substitutions

Pie Crust: I highly recommend using my homemade no-fail pie crust. It is enough for the two crusts needed for this pie. And, after you try it, you will want to have the recipe on hand for all of your pie recipes, both hot and cold! Store-bought pie crusts would also work.

Blackberries: Fresh blackberries are best to use in this recipe; I do not recommend using frozen berries.

Sugar: Granulated sugar adds sweetness to the blackberries, balancing out any tartness. The amount of sugar can be adjusted according to personal preference and the natural sweetness of the berries.

Flour: All-purpose flour acts as a thickening agent for the filling, absorbing excess liquid from the berries as the pie bakes.

Can I Make A Lattice Pie Crust?

Yes! You can certainly create a lattice design with the top crust. Check out my Dwight’s Apple Pie recipe if you prefer this design. I have specific details on creating a lovely lattice design in the post.

How To Store Blackberry Pie

If you plan to enjoy the pie within a couple of days, the pie can be stored at room temperature. It can also be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 3-4 days.

Can I Freeze Blackberry Pie?

Sure! To freeze blackberry pie:

  1. Allow the pie to cool completely at room temperature after baking.
  2. Once cooled, wrap the pie with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. You could then add another layer of wrapping or place it in a freezer-safe container.
  3. Place the wrapped pie in the freezer, making sure it is on a flat surface. The pie can be frozen for up to 2-3 months.
  4. When ready to enjoy or serve the pie, let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Then, you can reheat it in the oven until warm if preferred.

Blackberry Pie is a homemade pie crust filled with a mixture of fresh blackberries, sugar, and flour, then baked to golden brown. It is simple to make, but far from simple in taste with the flaky crust and a sweet and slightly tart filling.

  • 6 cups (864 g) fresh blackberries
  • ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup (31 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, room temperature, beaten

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Onto a lightly floured surface, roll out one of the pie crusts into a 12-inch circle. Place into a 9-inch pie pan, overlapping the sides.
  • In a large bowl, toss the blackberries with sugar and the flour. Pour the berry mixture into the prepared pie crust.

Fresh summer flavors in this pie! I know not everyone is a fan of blackberries but I really enjoyed it, especially with some whipped cream on top!

Bella

I am not much of a pie eater, but I can see why this would be a hit for some! The blackberries are sweet and very tart. There is a bit of texture because of the seeds. Overall, it tastes very fresh and it would be a hit for blackberry fans!

This pie is so lovely! Not overly sweet, but has so much refreshing blackberry flavor. I already love blackberries, and this makes them even more versatile!
