When blackberry season hits, it's time for a celebration. Sweet but tangy and bursting with powerful antioxidants, blackberry desserts (and other mixed berry desserts that feature blackberries) pop up in many kitchens. From berry cobblers to simple berries and cream, easy berry dessert recipes that involve blackberries are a great way to up your intake of this delicious and super nutritious power food. Here's an easy peasy blackberry pie designed to minimize your time cooking and maximize your time actually enjoying these natural treats.
· 4 cups fresh blackberries (frozen berries work great in a pinch)
· 1/2 cup sugar
· 1/2 cup flour
· 1 pre-made pie crust
· 2 tablespoons milk
· 1 pre-made pie crust topping
· Aluminum foil
The first step in this easy berry dessert procedure is simply preheating the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit ahead of time so that it is ready when your pie is.
Next, make the blackberry filling by combining the fresh or frozen berries with the sugar and flour in a medium or large mixing bowl. Stir it all together until the three ingredients form a thick, gooey filling for the pie.
Next, pour your blackberry filling into the pre-made pie crust and level off the top with a butter knife or spatula so that you have a flat surface. Place the pre-made pie crust topping on top of your filling, and press into the edge to seal it off.
Place a sheet of aluminum foil over the top of the pie to keep the moisture in, and then bake the pie in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Let the pie cool to room temperature before serving, and then add ice cream or other toppings as you please.
