Apple Blackberry Pie

Submitted by: STH on April 16, 2012

I wanted to recreate a childhood memory for my boyfriend, but couldn’t find a recipe for the pie he loved as a child. I modified a fruit crumble recipe from Epicurious that I’d made before to make him a pie with his two favorite fruits for Pi(e) Day (3.14).

Servings: 6-8   Prep Time: 20 min   Cook Time: 1 hr  


pastry for 1-crust pie

1 1/2 lbs. baking apples, diced (peeling is optional)
2 1/2 c. blackberries, fresh or frozen
6 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 c. oats
1/2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. margarine or unsalted butter, softened


Roll out pastry and place in deep-dish pie plate; combine filling ingredients and pour into pastry.

Combine oats, flour, and salt, then cut in margarine. Sprinkle crumbs over pie filling.

Bake in lower third of oven at 425 degrees for 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue to bake for another 30 minutes.
