Homemade Blackberry Pie

I love pie.. I think that it is a dessert that can be eaten any time no matter the occasion. Last year I visited Mt. Rainier in Washington with my family and on our way home we stopped at this little mom & pop restaurant cafe and I had the most amazing pie I have ever had. Ever since then I have been craving blackberry pie. For the past few month I have been trying and tweeking pie recipes, and I finally came up with my own version of blackberry pie with a twist.

 I have never been  a fan off making my own pie crust I find it so tedious and not very fun lol. So I bought a pie crust, but I am sure this pie would taste even better, if I didn’t decide to be lazy, if I made the crust from scratch.

The twist to this recipe is that instead of only using blackberries I added a few raspberries to the mixture to just add some depth of berry flavor to the pie. I found when I only used blackberries I didn’t like pie as much..Just my own personal preference, but you can leave out the raspberries and just use blackberries alone.

Cut out and a piece and serve with some vanilla bean ice cream and enjoy!!

Filling:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 5 cups of blackberries
  • 1 cup of raspberries
  • 2 tsp of butter cut into pieces

Directions:

  1. In large bowl, mix sugar, flour, and stir in blackberries and raspberries until everything is coated.
  2. Spoon into pastry-lined pie plate.
  3. Place your cut butter pieces on top of the blackberry mixture.
  4. Cover with top pastry that has slits cut in it; and seal the edges with a fork. (you can make the crust cover into any design you like I did a criss cross weave top for some extra cuteness!)
  5. Cover the crust edge with 2- to 3-inch strip of foil to prevent excessive browning on the edges.
  6. Bake 45-55 minutes or until crust is golden brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust, removing foil for last 15 minutes of baking.
  7. Cool on cooling rack at least 1 hour to allow filling to thicken.
  8. Cut into slices, serve and enjoy with some yummy ice cream!!

Happy Diwali!!

Happy (indian) new year everyone!!

Diwali is one of the biggest festival that Hindus celebrate with great enthusiasm and happiness in India. The festival is celebrated for five continuous days, where the third days is celebrated as the main Diwali festival or “Festival of Lights” Different colorful varieties of fireworks are always associated with this festival. On this auspicious day, people light up diyas {top right hand image in the picture above} and candles all around their house. They perform Laxmi Puja in the evening and see divine blessing of the Goddess of Wealth. The festival is never complete without exchange of gifts {I gave everyone a plate filled with Indian sweets and snacks), to all dear ones.

The top left picture is not something i drew, but the two bottom left and right hand corners are the two rangoli’s I drew in front of my house of a Peacock and a Ganesh!!!
