Growing up on a farm meant my list of chores included helping pick blackberries, in turn, that meant we were going to be enjoying yummy desserts such as homemade cobbler, and blackberry pie. I could try to describe just how amazing these desserts were, but there really are no words. You’ll just have to trust me… they were heavenly! (Insert sigh)

Guess we aren’t the only ones that love blackberries!
Rustic Cast Iron Skillet Blackberry Pie
Easy No-Fail Pie Crust Recipe
Any pie starts with a good pie crust recipe and No Fail Speedy Pie Crust has been in my family for well over 50 years. It is super easy to make and requires only 4 ingredients. This recipe makes enough dough for one bottom and one top crust when using either a regular 9-inch pie pan or 8-inch cast iron skillet. (Click on the link above to see how to make it!)
Using cool water, rinse 1-quart blackberries; drain well and place in medium-sized mixing bowl. Add one recipe for Basic Fruit Filling.
Basic Fruit Filling:
- 3 tablespoons minute tapioca (uncooked)
- 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Place blackberry mixture into pie crust.
To make a crumble topping: combine 1 cup rolled oats + 1/2 cup granulated sugar + 1 heaping tablespoon flour. Evenly spread over top of the pie.
Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 1 hour 15 minutes, or until center of pie is “set” and topping is golden brown. Cool. Serve with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
