Yes I’m a little (a lot) obsessed with blackberries right now! Probably because I have so many I need to make use of already! My blackberry bushes are producing so well this summer, I’m loving it! I’ve never made a blackberry pie so I searched on the internet and even found some old family recipes. I’ve pieced them together to make my own awesome pie filling, I’m not going to even act like I have a decent pie crust recipe- beg your grandma for some help on that!!
For this recipe you need a handful of ingredients and 5 minutes to prep before baking!
Blackberry Peach Pie Filling
- 2 cups of fresh blackberries
- 4 peaches halved
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 tbsp of corn starch or flour (to thicken the juices)
Combine sugar and corn starch in a large bowl with fruit, then fill your pie crust.
Bake according to the crust recipe. I like to add a little extra flavor to the top crust. To do this you’ll need:
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tbsp of ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp of ground nutmeg
Simply cover the crust with the melted butter and sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg over the top!
After baking let cool. Enjoy with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream!
