Apple Blackberry Pie

Two pies become one is this deliciously fruity apple blackberry pie. Slice it up for a special fall day or even Thanksgiving.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day (or had since I hope you are not reading this on Thanksgiving Day). I am spending time with family in North Carolina and we actually jumped the gun on one of the two desserts I made for today and ate it last night. Apparently this apple blackberry pie looked too good to not eat immediately upon my arrival after a 10 hour drive.

They really didn’t have to convince me to dig into this apple blackberry pie a day early. Especially since I had baked it that morning and spent the entire drive absorbing the smells. Bonus points because there was ice cream to put on top, yummy!

Apple Blackberry Pie.

Not only is this pie a combination of apple pie and blackberry pie, but there’s a little bit of extra flavor in the crust as well – cinnamon! I don’t know why I don’t think to add a little spice to my crusts normally because it’s wonderful.

BTW, if you do not own an apple peeler/corer/slicer (Amazon affiliate link) and a silicone pie shield (Amazon affiliate link), I strongly recommend them. The all-in-one peeler/corer/slicer perfectly peels off all the skin, cores out the middle and uniformly slices each apple all at once. And it’s fun to play with!

Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 4 to 6 Tbsp cold water
  • 1 egg + 1 tsp milk, beaten
  • 1 tsp cinnamon-sugar (optional)


  • 5 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples (about 2.5 lbs.)
  • 2 cup fresh blackberries, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg


  1. Place rack on  bottom third and preheat oven to 450 degrees. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half. Roll out one portion to fit a 9-in. pie plate; place pastry in plate. To avoid a soggy crust, brush egg-milk mixture on crust before adding filling.
  3. In a large bowl, combine apples and blackberries. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg; add to fruit mixture and toss to coat. Pour into crust.
  4. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry or add decorative cutouts if desired*. Brush a little of the milk-egg mixture over the pie dough and sprinkle with 1 tsp cinnamon-sugar if desired. Cover edges loosely with foil**.
  5. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees; remove foil. Bake 40-50 minutes longer or until lightly browned and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.

This looks fabulous! I love apples and blackberries, what a great combo. I always think of cranberries being combined with apples, but never blackberries.
