Pie is one of my favorite things to bake but not always my favorite to eat, unless its blackberry or apple pie! This one is becoming my favorite. I’ve made this recipe a few times, but finally absolutely nailed it with this latest pie. (By actually remembering to add the proper amount of corn starch! lol!)
I love this recipe because you can use frozen berries. You can get a big bag of them from Walmart, most of the time! This last time they were out and I got berries out our local food-service/chef store. So, it has enough blackberries for like 3 pies! You just defrost the berries, sometimes I even speed matters up and do a light defrost in the microwave. Once they are defrosted you just mix all the other ingredients and then dump it into your prepared crust and add lattice on top. I always make my crust from the same crust recipe, which will be attached separately. Its my favorite, I’ve made loads of pies with this crust. Its a keep, fo sho!
Also, Its clear that I have a favorite latticing! Lol! I didn’t realize I did the latticing all the same on all 3 of these pies over the past year.
I feel like it’s more of a solid crust, maybe just because of how it’s mixed together. But the taste is always amazing and bakes beautifully and I never had issues with it. I might just over process my dough when I’m whipping it through the mixer. Generally bigger chunks of butter in the dough make it more flakey. This crust is still a little flakey at the end, but just not a lot.
