Blackberry Pie Recipe



I have always been a berry type of pie person. My absolute favorite is raspberry. I had the over abundance of blackberries to use up that I had the luck of growing in our garden and had to make a pie with them.  This came out great in flavor. If you ever have the pleasure of fresh blackberries this is a must try for you! I love the deep flavor of blackberries, a keeper for me.
