  • 6 cups fresh or frozen blackberries about 1 3/4 pounds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 disks refrigerated pie dough
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter diced
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, toss the blackberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest and lemon juice. Use a fork or potato masher and coarsely mash the blackberry mixture.  Let it stand for 20 minutes.
  • Fit one of the rounds of pie dough into a 9 or 9 1/2 inch pie plate. Cut the remaining round into approximately ten or eleven strips. 
  • Pour the blackberry mixture into the pie shell. Dot the top with the pieces of butter. 
  • Arrange half of the dough strips evenly on the pie and weave the remaining strips diagonally across them in a lattice pattern.  
  • Trim the strips close to the edge of the pan and roll and crimp the edges of the dough. 
  • Lightly beat the egg with 1 Tbsp of water and brush on the top and edge of the pie dough. 
  • Place the pie plate on a baking sheet covered with foil and place on the middle rack in your oven. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the crust is is dark golden brown. 
  • Let the pie cool completely before serving. Don't worry if the blackberry mixture looks a little runny it will thicken as it cools. Serve topped with vanilla ice cream if desired.
