Blackberry Pie is one of the easiest pie recipes and perfect for summer berry season! You can make this pie with fresh or frozen berries and choose your topping: lattice, double crust or crumble topping.
When I was young, my Aunt and Uncle lived in Washington. They’d come down every August to visit and my aunt would make a two crust blackberry pie. My dad was practically salivating two full weeks beforehand in anticipation. Blackberry is his favorite.
Every August when Jordan was little we’d go blackberry picking up in Auburn (here in California). There is a farm that grows blackberry pushes without thorns so it’s a fun day trip for the kids to go and pick berries. Whenever we’d go I’d come home and make a blackberry pie, often for my dad.
What’s great about this recipe is that it’s a versatile berry pie – use any combination of berries that you have – but we love making it as a simple blackberry pie. Today I’m going to show you step-by-step how to make a lattice top crust (although I have a video on how to do that). Sometimes photos are easier to watch than a full video!
