Blackberry pie basically consists of a two-crust pie made from shortcrust pastry, filled with fresh blackberries, sugar, butter and flour to thicken slightly.
The pie may be livened up with a touch of cinnamon or ground nutmeg.
If you are a little short on the blackberries, then you can always throw in a few apples for good measure, which is a wonderful partnership of fruit.
Below we offer four different recipes for blackberry pie. The first three are made with a double pie crust, whilst the last recipe is slightly different and only uses one layer of pastry.
