- 3 packages (6 ounces or 1 1/3 cup each) Driscoll's Blackberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cups quick-cooking tapioca
- 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
- 1/8 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 ready-made pie crusts
- 2 teaspoons butter, cut into pieces
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Combine blackberries, sugar, tapioca, lemon zest and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir gently to combine.
Arrange one pie crust in the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan. Fill with blackberry mixture and scatter butter on top.
Cut a few small slits decoratively in center of remaining pie crust. Center dough over blackberries. Pinch overhanging edges together, roll under and crimp with thumb and forefinger to seal dough around edge of pan.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until juices bubble and crust is golden.Cool 10 minutes before serving, or serve room temperature.
I used blackberries that my husband picked while out on his walk. I baked this pie for a church potluck and everyone wanted the recipe. The tapioca works so much better than flour as a thickener. It is the best fruit pie that I have ever made. The directions are not in the proper order however and for a first time cook it could leave them scratching their heads. #'s3, #4, and #5 should be #1, 2, and 3; #'s 1 & 2 should be #'s 4 & 5
