You’ve seen it—that soupy berry pie that runs all over the plate when you cut it, and your guests have to eat the mess with a spoon? Not even ice cream will save it. Well, here’s the solution. This pie will never fail you. I call it “neighborly” because you just want to invite everyone over to have some 🙂
Neighborly Blackberry Pie
5 cups fresh blackberries
1/4 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp tapioca
1 1/2 Tbsp lime or lemon juice
1/4 tsp cinnamon, if desired (I leave it out)
2 pie crusts (and Pillsbury is just as good as homemade, so there)
Toss first 6 ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Fill lower crust with mixture and dot with 2 Tbsp butter. Lay top crust on, crimp, and vent.
Bake at 450F for 10 minutes, then lower to 350 for 30-40 minutes. Serves 6-8.
