This simple homemade apple-blackberry pie is a twist on a classic apple pie with sweet, juicy blackberries added! It’s refined sugar free with dairy and gluten free options included.
Happy Pi(e) Day! We celebrated 3.14 with one of our favorite desserts, a simple Apple-Blackberry Pie! My hubby’s favorite dessert is apple pie, while my son’s favorite pie is blackberry. Consolidating these two flavors together into a simple pie is nothing short of amazing. It’s definitely one of our go-to’s because it’s the best of both worlds—tender apple layers with big, juicy berries in between. You get the flavor of both apple and berries without the overwhelming amount of seeds, which blackberry pies are infamous for.
Pie making is definitely a labor of love. Making the crust, peeling & chopping fruit…let’s be honest, it’s time consuming. But when you pull the finished product out of the oven with its golden crust and juices bubbling over, there’s just something gratifying about the fact that you just turned flour, water, and fruit into a delicious, rustic masterpiece.
I got a little fancy with the braided lattice crust on this simple homemade apple-blackberry pie, but a regular lattice crust is muuuuch easier and similarly beautiful. If you don’t care to fuss over crust, you can even lay a whole sheet of pastry on top, cut a few slits for the steam, and call it a day.
Whichever method you choose, this simple homemade apple-blackberry pie makes a beautiful presentation and the perfect after-dinner treat. Serve plain, or if you’re feeling extra indulgent, a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream makes a fantastic addition. Enjoy, friends!Print
