Blackberry Pie Recipe

Blackberry Pie Recipe

I’m super happy that blackberry season is here because it means that we get to enjoy blackberries in abundance again! Blackberry season in the UK generally runs between June and November, but you can find blackberries at their peak in August/September. I’ve been blackberry picking with the boys for three years now and the boys now look out for blackberries in our back garden, on the way to the park and even in side roads where the bramble hedgerows have been allowed to spread literally like wildfire.

This year we managed to find so many blackberries, so we decided to make a hearty Blackberry Pie to enjoy them in style!

I decided to make the pie from scratch because it really is so super easy to make. I try to go vegan as much as possible, but my three boys are very much into dairy and meat, so I try to accommodate for both. In this recipe, I use dairy free margarine (my favourite is Vitalite which tastes just like normal margarine) and almond milk if I need to use milk. The only thing I haven’t found a substitute for is egg yet. Any ideas for how I can make a pie without egg?? 

Once the dough was made, I placed it in the fridge for 30 minutes and started working on my filling. I have made various different batches of blackberry pie, one with blackberry and apple (delicious!) and one with blackberry and banana (wasn’t my favourite as the banana was a little too overpowering), but regular ol’ blackberries are just as great. To sweeten the taste you can add honey or brown sugar – or both – and then once the dough is rolled and placed onto the pie dish, you just fill up the dish with your filling, cover with the rolled out dough and then you’re ready to place in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes.

Don’t forget to glaze the top of the sides with egg or almond milk so that the top dough circle glues itself onto the sides and you score the top so heat is allowed to escape. I glazed the top of my pie with egg, but really I want to go for almond milk next time. Baby steps 🙂
