Reviews forGlazed Blackberry Pie
"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."
"Does the recipe need to be modified if using frozen blackberries, since many of us do not have access to fresh ones?"
"I use this receipe for my fresh peach and strawberry pie. The only difference is instead of crushing the fruit, I leave it whole and add 1 lg box of specific jello (for color/peach or strawberry or berry). Taste so fresh and is delicious!"
"You could reduce the calories further by substituting Splenda for the sugar."
"why don't you add sugar info in your recipes for us diebetics. It would really help us"
