Blackberry-Blueberry Crumb Pie

Blackberry-Blueberry Pie
What to do on a snowy Saturday afternoon? I mean beside the obvious cleaning the freezer? Bake a pie, of course! I decided to make a Blackberry-Blueberry Crumb Pie, mainly because in cleaning the freezer I found blackberries, blueberries and a frozen pie crust! This was almost too easy. It nearly baked itself. It will serve as dessert to a dinner of Turkey Tetrazzini (frozen shredded turkey...another freezer find) and homemade buttermilk bread. This dinner will be YUM!

To put the pie together is as easy as...well...pie! Like I said, I had the crust frozen from a previous pie baking. (I always make two crusts and freeze one.) If you aren't lucky enough to have a crust waiting in the freezer, now is the time to make a couple. Follow the simple instructions from this previous post, Pie Crusts 101. Besides the crust, you will need a bag of frozen blackberries, a bag of frozen or a box of fresh blueberries, butter, flour and sugar. (Note, fresh blueberries freeze extremely well, so if you run across a bargain, stock up!)

pie ingredients

Blackberry-Blueberry Crumb Pie
1 bag frozen blackberries
1 bag frozen blueberries
1 pint fresh blueberries
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 pie crust (unbaked)
crumb topping (see below for recipe)
Mix frozen berries with flour and sugar. Pour into pie crust. Top with crumb topping. Bake in preheated oven at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. Reduce oven to 350 and bake another 45-60 minutes.

It really is very simple. And it will be a juicy pie!

Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
Cut butter into flour and sugar until crumbly. Spoon over your fruit filling and bake as usual.

Here is the pie with the crumb topping ready to pop in the oven.

Now, all that is left to do is get a plate and fork (and maybe a scoop of vanilla ice cream) and enjoy!
