Classic Blackberry Pie Recipe

Instructions: Prepare the Crust: In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and sugar.Add the cold, cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or fork to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Prepare the Filling: In a large bowl, mix the blackberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon (if using), and salt. Toss gently to combine.

Assemble the Pie: Roll out the second dough disk into another 12-inch circle. Place it over the filling and trim any excess dough, leaving about a 1-inch overhang. Fold the overhang under itself and crimp the edges to seal.

Bake the Pie: Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake for 15 minutes at 425°F, then reduce the oven temperature to 375°F (190°C) and bake for an additional 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbly.

Cool Allow the pie to cool completely on a wire rack before serving. This helps the filling set.

Serving: Serve the blackberry pie warm or at room temperature, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Enjoy!
