Below is a recipe for delicious blackberry pie.
Below is a recipe for delicious blackberry pie.

Over the years I have often thought of my Grandmother Hattie Propst and the delicious Blackberry Pie that she made. As soon as I became a Chef I started trying to make my Grandmothers Blackberry Pie and after a few years I was able to recreate it and in 2001 I won a blue ribbon and $500.00 cash at the Miami Food Show for this recipe.

If you've never made a Blackberry Pie or never tasted one I will tell you that you have missed much. This recipe for Blackberry Pie is one of the most delicious pies that you will ever make and taste. I am happy to share this wonderful recipe with everyone and if you make it please post a comment below and let us know how your Blackberry Pie turned out.

For your Blackberry Pie Recipe you will need.

1. 4 Cups of Ripe Blackberries. ( Use wild ones if possible for best flavor ).

2. 1/2 Cup Of White Granulated Sugar.

3. 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice.

4. 2 Tablespoons of Cornstarch.

5. 2 9 Inch Round Pie Crusts.

6. 1 Tablespoon of Warm Water.

7. 1 Egg Yolk of A Large Egg Beaten Very Well.

8. 2 Teaspoons Lemon Zest.

You will want to preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Now you will want to stir together your lemon juice, zest, sugar, and corn starch and mix well. Stir your blackberries into the mixture in a bowl.

Line a 9 inch pie pan with one of the pie crusts and press down into the pie pan well. Now you want to rake your berry mixture into the pie crust and press the berries down. Cover with your other pie crust and with the tines of a fork press your crusts together all the way around the pan.

Now you will want to whisk together your egg yolk and warm water until well blended. Brush the egg wash over the top of your pie crust and cut slits around the top of the crust to let out steam.

You will want to bake for 40 to 45 minutes until the berries are bubbling and the crust is brown.

This pie is delicious served with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.

And now you know exactly how to make a blue ribbon blackberry pie. If you can't find fresh blackberries for sale in your area you can usually purchase canned ones in most grocery stores.

      This is the first blackberry pie that I have made, but have won awards and blue ribbons for my apple pies, (Its in the crust!) I wanted to give it a try since my grandma passed last Thanksgiving and left behind canned blackberries. She made the best blackberry pie ever!! Thank you for the recipe. The only change I made was I put 1/4 cup frozen blackberries on top of the canned ones to give it some extra whole berry flavor. I will eat the pie with all the family tonight with some whipped cream and vanilla ice cream...I'll have to post how it turned out. Right out of the oven, it is the best looking pie I have ever made!!! Thanks again!!
