I use the first ripe berries of the season to make this fruity pie.—Monica Gross, Downey, California

Ingredients

  • 5 cups fresh blackberries, divided
  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked
  • 1 cup water, divided
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Red food coloring, optional
  • Whipped topping

Directions

  1. Place 2 cups blackberries in pastry shell; set aside. In a saucepan, crush 1 cup berries. Add 3/4 cup water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Press berries through a sieve. Set juice aside and discard pulp.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Stir in remaining water and reserved juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in food coloring if desired. Pour half of the glaze over berries in pastry shell. Stir remaining berries into remaining glaze; carefully spoon over filling.

    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?
