Picture this: Tons of sweet, juicy blackberries hiding underneath a buttery-rich, golden pie crust that is sparkling with a sprinkle of cinnamon-sugar on top. We’re talking about a fabulous Homemade Blackberry Pie warm out of the oven, served with a scoop of rich vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on the side… yum!
Blackberry Pie is a TOP FAVE dessert in our family. However, we just can’t seem to wait for a big pie to cool before we slice into it. After all, we have already waited for it to bake; enough waiting! But we wondered, how can we cut our fresh out-of-the oven Blackberry Pie, without it falling apart?
And then it came me: Make individual homemade blackberry pies! Oh my goodness.
I LOVE THESE LITTLE PIES! They are so cute and are such fun to make. In fact, they’re “easy as pie” to put together. All you do is simply put the berry filling in the little baking dish then top it with a single pie crust. (Gosh, a single pie crust? That must mean that these pies are low-calorie, too!) Well… I’m probably “stretching it” to say these are low calorie; however, these lovely little Blackberry Pies are gluten free and you can also make them dairy free, enjoy!
Individual Homemade Blackberry Pies
This gluten-free Blackberry Pie recipe is so good and easy-to-make, you’ll find yourself making this for your family and friends often.
- Note: If your berries are really sweet and have no tartness to them, you will want to cut the sugar down by 1/4 cup. I made these pies recently with boysenberries instead of blackberries and was shocked at the difference! You may also want to add 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice. Fresh lemon juice will bring out the flavor of the berries.
- I like my pies to look “country style” but you might like to make yours look like they came from a fancy French pastry shoppe. Make your pies “your way.”
- You will have extra pie dough, since we are only making eight pies. Chill the extra dough in the frig to use another time.
- Make Ahead Note: Sometimes I wrap the pies in plastic wrap, then foil and place them in the freezer until I want to bake them.
