This easy apple blackberry pie recipe is so easy to make; it is affordable, doesn’t need many ingredients, and doesn’t require a lot of time to prepare. 

My favorite thing about this recipe is that it does not require a lot of sugar, which helps you taste the apple’s natural sweetness, accentuating the blackberry’s tart flavor.

This easy apple blackberry pie recipe is my take on this famous recipe called Apple pie by Grandma Ople. I love that recipe because it is simple and easy. I fell in love with making pies by following this recipe.

This easy apple blackberry pie recipe is so easy to make; it is affordable, doesn’t need many ingredients, and doesn’t require a lot of time to prepare. 

WHAT IS THE BEST APPLE TO MAKE PIES? 

For me, it’s the Golden delicious apples and Honeycrisps. I have used all kinds of apples, but those are my favorites. 

I have tried this recipe with Granny Smith apples, but I was not too fond of it; it was too tart and required too much sugar. I wouldn’t say I like it when the pie is too sour or too sweet, I like the balance, but that is definitely up to you. 

You can also mix all different kinds of apples; many people like doing it this way because you get a balanced flavor and delicious pie.

People say that the Golden delicious apples are not really good for baking because it easily breaks apart, but in this recipe, you do not need to mix or stir the apples, so they are able to keep their shape without breaking. Golden delicious apples are crispy when cooked and don’t become runny, not too sour, nor too sweet; they are the perfect combination for pies, so that is why you can use less sugar.

DO YOU HAVE TO LATTICE THE PIE CRUST?

You do not have to lattice the pie crust. The Grandma Ople apple pie recipe asks for lattice pie crust, but I have tried my recipes using the whole crust so many times, and it worked just fine. 

You do have to pour the sugar and butter sauce mixture right on top of the apples first, though, before covering it with the top crust. Or else you will not be able to get the sauce inside the apples. 

 

In my apple blackberry pie recipe video tutorial, I do not use lattice crust, but if you would like to try making it, there is an excellent tutorial about how to make a stunning lattice pie crust from Sally’s Baking Blog. You can find the recipe here

 

Making the lattice pie crust takes a bit of time and practice, so I do not include it in this recipe. 

You can still get a beautiful looking pie by not doing lattice crust. Make sure to cut slits on the top pie crust, which will allow the pie to vent well. 

This recipe’s title is the Easy apple blackberry pie, so I am going for the Easiest version.

DO YOU HAVE TO BRUSH THE PIE WITH EGG WASH?

No, you do not have to. But you can. 

 

I do not use egg wash in this recipe and the Grandma Ople apple pie recipe does not either. 

 

Egg wash is a combination of an egg and other liquids such as milk or water used to make pastries shiny and golden or brown. According to Wikipedia, it is also used to help toppings or coatings stick to the pastry’s surface or bind pastry parts together. 

 

You can still get a beautiful pie color without using the egg wash. My suggestion is that if you do not want the crusts to burn too quickly, bake the pie in the center rack and cover the pie’s edge with aluminum foil. When the timer is almost over, you can remove the foil. 

DO I NEED TO PRECOOK THE APPLES AND THE BLACKBERRIES?

No, you do not need to precook the apples and the blackberries. 

By not precooking the fruits, the apples will be crispy and not too soft. The blackberries will retain their shape and will not become soggy. 

HOW TO KEEP THE APPLE BLACKBERRY PIE FROM BEING SOGGY?

The amount of ingredients needed for this recipe is perfect for keeping the pie filling consistency not to become runny. But to make it perfect, you have to pay attention to the bake times. The crust’s brown color does not mean that the pie is done, so do not remove the pie from the oven too quickly. It takes time for the flour to thicken. 

 If the crust is browning too quickly, put aluminum foil around the edges of the pie and remove it about one minute before the timer is up. It also helps to place the pastry on a lowered center rack in your oven. 

When you leave the pie out to cool down, allow it to cool off entirely so the pie filling can set. If you slice it too soon, the pie filling has not thickened, and it will be runny. You have to wait for at least 25 minutes before you can slice the pie.

INGREDIENTS

Pastry for a double-crust pie (9 inches): Brought to room temperature. While I prepare the apples and the other ingredients, I take the pastries out of the box and leave them out, and it will turn room temperature by the time all the ingredients are prepared. This process takes about 15 minutes, or you can just put it in the microwave for 15 seconds.

 

5 cups of thinly sliced golden delicious apples:  You can use mixed apples too. 

 

Fresh blackberries:

 

Unsalted butter: melted

 

White sugar: Granulated

 

Brown sugar

 

All-purpose flour 

 

Water

 

Cinnamon powder

 

Clove powder (Optional), you can replace it with ground nutmeg

 

HOW TO MAKE THE EASIEST APPLE BLACKBERRY PIE?

Step 1:  First, preheat oven to 425°F (219° C). Then leave the pastries out of the refrigerator to be brought to room temperature. 

 

Step 2:  Next, wash, peel, core, and thinly slice the apples. Set aside. Then, place the room temperature bottom crust in the pan and set it aside. Remember to put the crusts in the microwave for 15 seconds if they are still too cold before putting it on the pan. 

 

Step 3: In a saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add flour. Whisk until it forms a paste. Add white sugar, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, clove powder, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature to low and simmer.

Now take the pan with the bottom crust and fill it with the sliced apples. Pour the buttery sauce slowly right on top of the apples. Do not stir or mix. Now cover it with the top pie crust. Seal both edges. You can shape it any way you want. I just use a fork; it’s super fast.

Step 4: Lastly, bake at 425°F in the middle rack for 15 minutes. Then lower the temperature to 325°F (163° C). Cook for at least 35-40 minutes. If the crusts burn too quickly, you can just cover the pies’ edges with aluminum foil. 

 

Remove from the oven and let chill for at least 20 minutes. The pie will be too runny if you slice it too soon. 

 

Serve and Bon Appetit!
