Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
I like this pie. It's the first pie I've ever made. I did like others suggested -- beaten egg white brushed on bottom and top crust, and lemon juice -- I forgot the butter. Which I bet the salt would've added a nice flavor. I added 1/2 of a juiced lemon. And I did not put 1/4 of a cup of sugar on top...yikes. I put 1 tsp but I shouldve used 2 tsp. I also first mixed the sugar and flour thoroughly before mixing with the berries. When I mixed the berries in it there was still a lot of the sugar/flour mix left over. I just tried to evenly distribute it. The pie is very congealed (stiff/jellied) but I like that. Also, I enjoyed the tartness but you may want to add more sugar to the berries. Overall I love it. I will try the butter and more sugar next time in the pie and on top (since 1 tsp didn't cover the pie). My husband didn't like how tart it was. Also, I used 1/3 of each berry: blackberrys, blueberrys, and raspberrys. I found it fit very well into my 9inch pan. I'm about to go back for my 3rd slice....I will be working the calories off from this pie for the next week....hahah
