Blackberry and raspberry pie

blackberry and raspberry pie, dairy-free

Here’s the next instalment of my blackberry recipes and what could be a more autumnal combination that blackberries baked in a pie! I’ve always shied away from pies in the past, but in reality they’re super simple to make, just requiring a little time and patience, particularly if taking the easy option of using ready made pastry.

The combination of tart blackberries and mellow raspberries works really well, especially with the sugar topped pastry lid. Instead of rolling out a lid I made one from cut outs of heart shapes stuck together on top. The idea was the queen of hearts and one of her tarts but next time I’d use bigger hearts for a more obvious result.

Best enjoyed slightly warmed with dairy free custard or ice cream.
