Apple Blackberry Pie

Apple Blackberry Pie
Since the very first time I had ever tasted one I have been in love with blackberries and am always on the lookout for good recipes that feature blackberries.

Apple Blackberry Pie
My neighbor has blackberries all along the common fence between our yards. When we first moved in she brought us over a fruit basket of berries, and a pint jar of home canned, blackberry syrup. She said it was good over vanilla ice-cream or also really great to have on pancakes. Since we happened to have a half-gallon of vanilla ice-cream on hand at the time we decided to try it right that very day! We scooped the fresh blackberries on top of our bowls of ice-cream and then poured on the syrup. I believe it was the very first time I had ever tasted a blackberry. Since then I have been in love with blackberries and am always on the lookout for good recipes that feature blackberries.


½ cup sugar
3 Tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
½ teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups cored, peeled and thinly sliced Granny Smith Apples
3 cups blackberries
1 (9-inch) pie shell, unbaked
1/3 cup marshmallow crème
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup rolled oats

1. Mix the sugar, tapioca, lemon zest, cinnamon, apples and blackberries in a large bowl.
2. Set it aside for 15 minutes.
3. Carefully, spoon it all into the pie shell.
4. Using a medium sized bowl, mix the marshmallow crème, melted butter, brown sugar and rolled oats until crumbly.
5. Sprinkle over the fruit – keeping to the center of the pie – at least one inch from the pie crust all around.

Bake at 375 degrees F. for 60-70 minutes or until bubbly.
Cover with foil after 4 5 minutes, if the topping is getting too brown.

Yield: 8 servings.

I like to use this red pie pan - Good Cook 9 Inch Ceramic Pie Plate, Red and the adjustable shield - Talisman Designs Adjustable Pie Crust Shield, BPA-free Silcone, Red, Fits 8.5" - 11.5" Rimmed Dish. Available from Amazon.

Now that the neighbors berries have crept under the fence, and I have more own blackberry patch I can make blackberry desserts to share with my friends and neighbors!
