My daughter picked a load of blackberries so we had the perfect excuse to make a blackberry pie - the end of summer doesn't taste any better than this! The berries do release alot of juice but I didn't hear any complaints!
what to do to prevent bottom not cooking always seems soggy - 09 Aug 2014
I have just made this pie and it is gorgeous. My own pastry recipe is going in the bin. It was very easy to roll out and perfectly crispy on the bottom when cooked. There was just the right amount of sugar for me both in the pastry and the filling. I actually used 6 small tinfoil dishes and will freeze some of them. Brilliant. Thanks. - 14 Sep 2013
It was brilliant. My whole family liked it. I used home-picked Raspberry's instead of Blackberry's, they worked brilliantly. I also used 17g of icing sugar instead of 30g in the pastry and it was still VERY tasty. For my first attempt at a fruit pie -instead of a crumble- it came out very well. The instructions were completely accurate too, so well done to Ita. Great recipe, will make it again! - 02 Jul 2012
