Very easy and delicious! Here are the changes I made. I was in a hurry so used a Pilsbury refrigerated pie crust (not the frozen kind). I also used frozen blackberries as they are not in season here yet. I used 1/2 the amount of cinnamon. I brushed the top crust with a little water and sprinkled some sugar for a nice glaze.

Tasted great but it didn't set up at all. I don't think there is enough flour in the berry mixture because it was extremely watery. I would try increasing the flour to 1/2 c. next time which another recipe called for with the same amount of berries.

This recipe isn't hard to make and the butter crust is excellent with this pie. I will decrease the cinnamon to 1/4 t. next time I make it. The kids are coming home this weekend so I'm picking more berries tomorrow, It looks like this recipe will become my new favorite Wild Blackberry Pie recipe.

Very good pie recipe. Tasted even better after sitting in the fridge for a few days. A couple things I would do differently: leave out the cinnamon (a bit overpowering) and add another tablespoon or two of water to the crust dough. All in all, this is a great recipe to use when you are trying to figure out what to do with piles of blackberries. Recommended: served heated, a la mode with vanilla ice cream.

This was the first Blackberry Pie I ever made. It was very easy to make and turned out wonderful.

Great filling but the recipe for the pastry, I found not to be enough I had to double it. Other than that great taste.

Excellent and extremely simple recipe. I actually used a pre-made pie crust to make this even more simple and the results were fantastic! This is the 2nd pie in 4 days I've made using this recipe.....my family can't get enough!

Quite tasty and easily prepared, I live in Germany and our German neighbors never had a pie before, so this was a wonderful way to introduce the wild blackberries(grown in our back yard)in a new and wonderful taste, in a new form. Sandra
