Instructions

  • 1

    The first step is to prepare the dough for the pie. Mix the butter, sugar salt and flour in a food processor and mix them until they give bread crumb like texture.

  • 2

    The dough is then prepared by adding a quarter cup of water. The dough is then wrapped in plastic and kept in a refrigerator for nearly 30-40 minutes.


  • 3

    Mix all the ingredients of berry filling together and let the mixture rest.

  • 4

    After resting the dough, it is split into two halves and each of the half is rolled out.

  • 5

    The bottom half is placed on a tin die and the blackberry mixture is spread over it uniformly.

  • 6

    Next comes the other dough layer on the top, and the extra edges are cut off.

  • 7

    Use a fork to prick the top surface at various points. The dish is now bake-ready.

  • 8

    Turn on the oven at 425 degree Fahrenheit, and bake the pie for 15 minutes before reducing the heat to 350 for an additional 30-40 minute cooking.

  • 9

    When the berries start to bubble out of the holes in the top crust, it is an indicator that the dish is baked properly. The crust should be nice golden brown by that point.

    The pie is taken out of the mould after letting it cool for 10 minutes, and can be served both hot and cold.
