Ok, I didn't use blackberries, but I did use this recipe for boysenberries and olallieberries. I increased the berries to 5 cups (3 cups olallie and 2 cups boysenberries) because I needed to use the berries I picked that morning otherwise they'd go bad. I kept all the other filling measurements the same. I used store bought pie crust (I had it on hand) and brushed a beaten egg on the bottom layer as suggested by another reviewer. Aslo, I decreased the amount of sugar on top of the crust. It just didn't need that much. The pie is absoltely wonderful. The filling is nice and solid rather than running everywhere, not too sweet, and the crust came out perfect. My husband said to keep this recipe and just try it with other berries as they come in season. Four thumbs up from us!
