Wonderful recipe. I do prefer cornstarch to thicken my pies, other than that this is right on perfect!!

Excellent filling (I used a store-bought crust). If your berries are as fresh and firm as mine were, you might need to add a quarter cup of water.

This was a good recipe. I would’ve liked some sort of egg wash on the crust and sugar sprinkled on it to sweeten the crust a bit and help counteract the tartness of the berries. If allowed to cool this pie is nice and stiff, not runny at all.

This was wonderful, usually use flour to thicken fruit pie, but the tapioca was much better idea

The instruction though few were very vague, pie looks terrible and there's no juice....hopefully it takes better than it looks....terrible for thanksgiving...will never use this again.

We have a blackberry patch and it produces an abundance of blackberries every summer. This is one of my husband's favorite blackberry desserts. It is easy to prepare.

Very good pie. Easy to make. I work all day and made it in the evening. My husband could not wait for it to cool. Very good taste

Fabulous pie! I have made 5 already this year, using fresh berries. I am wondering if frozen berries could be substituted?

I just made 2 pies using this recipe. Haven't tasted yet but the filling I tried out of the pan is yummy! I had to add a T or 2 of water when I started heating the sugar/tapioca/salt berry mixture. Can't wait to try finished pies!
