Blackberry Cherry Pie
Blackberry Cherry Pie is sweet and tart and incredibly crave-able. My recipe includes these fantastic little dough balls for a delicious addition to this lovely pie!
I picked up some little boxes of blackberries over the weekend. I had this vision of baking an out of season pie to change up the flavor pace in my kitchen. Then, as I was indulging in a spot of champagne over the weekend, those lovely berries crossed my mind. How decadent would it be to float plump blackberries in some beautiful bubbly? Let me tell you, it was dreamy... but it also left me short on berries for my pie.
I was still craving a blackberry pie, with dough balls, but I do not kid anyone with a mini pie. A good pie is a pie that you can share! A mini pie is not share-able!
I surveyed my kitchen and found 2 cans of cherry pie filling. I thought it over. I like cherries and berries. I like pie. Yep, this was destined to be. Luscious, fresh blackberries sprinkled with sugar and blended with cherry pie filling.
2 cans of cherry pie filling
2 boxes of blackberries
2 pie crusts
1/3 cup of sugar
Combine your clean blackberries and sugar. Stir and allow to sit for a moment.
Place one pie crust in a pie pan, form small balls of dough with the other and drop these in the pie crust.
Combine your cherry pie filling and sugared berries, stir.
Pour the fruity mixture into the pie crust, over the dough balls. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
This easy pie can be made with pre-made or homemade pie crust. You could leave the dough balls out, but that is the BEST part of the pie in my opinon!
