Blackberry Pie

I had a realization. I don’t really have time to create, photographic and write about new amazing recipes I came up with myself. Mostly because that sounds like work lots of other smart ladies are already doing. Why replicate that? 
But-I love to cook and try new recipes. After a couple attempts with a vegan cookbook that blew, I thought, why not talk about how the recipe really is to use? You know, when your hands are covered with flour and then you realize it says 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted in the ingredients. There are loads of websites that capture how pretty food is but I haven’t found many that reach past that towards substance.

I realized after 20 minutes of searching in my Jewel that I was not going to find the leaf lard and I scraped their pie crust altogether. I made the one my Nana made and I think it stood up to the woodsy flavor of the blackberries. I do wish I have rolled the top for weaving a bit thinner for eating-but it was hard enough to weave as it was!

The actual filing was incredibly simple to make and was a real homage to good blackberries. It didn’t take too long to come together and the baking instructions were stupid easy. Did I mention I made this at 10 on a weekend night and didn’t eff it up. Yeah.

with vanilla bean ice cream.

Really easy to make and so super stinking good to eat. Highly recommended-it got the Matt and Mike seal of approval too!
