Stephanie Ross won this week’s Wilderness Farms Blackberry Recipe Contest with her entry for Blackberry Pie. I am not much of a pastry chef, so I let Grandma Jo use this recipe to bake a delicious blackberry pie. I happened to call up as Merrell and Jo were finishing the last two pieces and heard nothing but nummy sounds. Bake up and enjoy this recipe.
1/4 cup of tapioca pearls (soak as indicated for pie filling preperation)
1/2 tsp Augostura bitters
1/2 tsp Almond Extract
1 1/2 cup sugar
6 cups fresh (or frozen if necessary) blackberries.
Mix ingredients with the blackberries last to insure a consistent mixture.
Crust: This recipe is for 2 9″pie crusts.
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 cup shortening
1/4 cup milk
Mix, ball and refrigerate ingredients for 20 min.
Roll out crust, add the filling and bake at 400 for 45 minutes.
