Homemade Blackberry Pie – Farmer’s Market Blackberries

A four ingredient pie! Fresh blackberries coated with flour and sugar dumped into a pie crust!

We have an awesome Farmer’s Market here in Denver, NC that takes place every single Saturday, Spring through Fall. We are fortunate to only live a few minutes away as well so it’s really easy to pack up quickly and go pick out some delicious goodness!

Laughing Coyote spotted blackberries and begged for them! We of course had to buy the biggest container!

This was the carton after we had eaten a TON! With so many left I decided to make a blueberry pie. I typically use Julia Child’s recipe for homemade pie crust but I decided to use one I found online from Very Best Baking.

Start by making the dough…

Then the filling…

Whenever I make a berry pie I use the same standard recipe.

Roughly 4c berries

1/4c flour to soak up all the juices

1/2c sugar

This was by far probably one of the ugliest lattice pies I’ve ever made by the dough was super hard to pick up off of the counter – it kept breaking 🙁 Aside from the appearance, it was very good tasting though!!blackberry4 blackberry5
