pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
apples - peeled, cored and sliced

This pie, according to my husband, is awesome. The apples really do help smooth the texture. I didn't have any tapioca, so I added about a tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken the berry/apple mixture. I will definitely be making this recipe again.
A little too tart for what I'm used to in an apple pie. Next time I think I would try to use a sweeter berry, and probably one without seeds :)
Excellent! After making a Blackberry pie, I had a couple of cups of berries left over and tried this recipe, it was way better than the blackberry-only pie-perfect texture and very delicious!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this pie. This is by far the best pie I have ever made!! Your berries should be naturally sweet or they can taste tart in the pie....still good. I add a little extra cinnamon and some vanilla. It is perfect. Look forward to baking this many more times. ps....I also use the Best Ever Pie Crust, it is so easy and fast to make. I use half butter half shortening for the dough and it is delicious!!
I come from a family of blackberry pie fans! Grew up picking them every year in anticipation of the great pies mom would make. My son likes blackberry pies, but not all the seeds. Many people feel the same way-if this describes you, then this is the perfect recipe. You can hardly taste the apples, they just give a little extra texture. We all loved this. I made a few for the freezer too!
Absolutely delicious!! Wonderful to find a pie recipe using blackberries! Everyone gobbled this pie up in no time! yum!!!
This was really good & easy to make! I used raspberry instead and Granny apples. I didn't have tapioca, so after the fruits soaked in the sugar, then the leftover juice in the bowl was mixed with a little cornstarch powder to thicken. Will definitely be making this again.
The description says it all! The apple and blackberry flavors blend together well. My regular blackberry pie is always too seedy; the apples help make the pie more smooth. I will most likely make a few more pies to refreeze so I can enjoy the fresh taste of summer in the middle of a Chicago winter! The only change I will make is to thicken up the juice; my pie turned out a little runnier than I like. Great recipe!
