Blackberry Pie

Last summer,I went to a city South of Payson and picked Blackberries at a farm. I was planning on making jelly with them. I did make 2 pints of jelly and froze the rest. The jelly turned out well but I didn't process it correctly (it was my first time and I didn't finish reading the instructions before I began) so they stayed in the fridge instead of the cupboard.

SInce we're moving, I'm trying to use up some of our frozen food...the blackberries are one of them. Adam likes fruit pies and he's always been the one to make them before. He told me he was coming home for a couple of weeks to keep me company so I decided to throw a pie together for him. I pulled the pie shells out of the freezer only to find them broken and thoroughly freezer burnt. So I ended up making the pie filling and crust from scratch. The recipe I used didn't say to bake the crust before I filled it so I was really concerned about the bottom crust being completely soaked and soggy.

All in all, I think it turned out well. Adam said it was the best thing he's had in a long time. :o) And Mike and Mia, who spent the night that night, also thought it was great and it only lasted 24 hours.
