pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
Good, but put the butter UNDER the top crust and when you mix the filling add a pinch of cinnamon. Also, don't use the pearl tapioca. It's too big.
I used tapioca - not the fast cooking kind so I literally had hard little pearls in the pie. I baked it about 45 minutes and had lots of juice for the tapioca to absorb but no luck. Maybe use one of those instant tapiocas or quick coooking kind? Sometimes it's the small details that get me (I don't keep many instant foods in my pantry and it backfires on me sometimes :-p ) You know though, it's hard to go wrong with sweet blackberries and pastry. I'll exclude the tapioca next time and go more traditional. (or buy instant tapioca?)
This is my favorite recipe for Blackberry pie. I often use Marionberries which are very similar to a blackberry. I double this recipe, put the butter under the crust not on top, use "Minute tapioca" and bake it in a 10 inch deep-dish glass Pyrex pieplate. It's done in 1 hour 15 minutes. PERFECTION!!
This is the best recipe I have found so far. The tapioca really keeps the berries together!The only thing I needed the change was the baking time,to about 45-50 minutes.Thanks Michele!
This absolutely the best recipe for blackberry pie. I have also used it to make a combination berry pie of berries that I had in the deep freeze, red currants, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. The tapioca held everything together. I use the medium small sized tapioca as pearl is too big. Excellent recipe. Many people think I am a gourmet baker.
This is the only blackberry pie recipe for me! Added a little lemon juice and cinnamon ~Perfect!
This is the best and easiest recipe! To make the pie thicker, add extra tapioca, just estimate the amount.
I just loved this recipe. I pick my own blackberries from our ranch and always in need of good blackberry recipes. I made this for a dinner party and the whole crowd was pleased! I did make a change however, used 2 table spoons of flour since I didn't have tapioca handy. It turned out great!!!
