Reviews for Glazed Blackberry Pie
"this pie was awesome very easy and very very good do you think i could use blueberries?"
"I've made this twice this week and put it in a graham cracker crust for a quickie. I served it with cool whip or ice cream. My guest loved it! I found it had a very flavorful glaze. Lois"
"I think frozen berries would be too 'wet' and make a soggy mess of the crust. You might try cooking all of the frozen berries and then using them as a filling. But it wouldn't really be a glazed pie anymore. JMHO"
"I am also asking about frozen berries. Do we use them the same as fresh?"
"I'm going to try all of these and very soon. I love pies and especially fruit pies. Ann Yarber."
