Recipe – Oregon Blackberry Pie

If you enjoy pie, then you haven’t lived until you try a slice of Oregon blackberry pie. While most locals throughout Oregon will know this is actually Marionberry pie, the flavor you’ll experience here is often called a taste of sunshine. Unlike other pies you’ve tried before, what makes this pie different is, (of course) the blackberries. The overall difference in pie texture is dramatically more stable and less runny than many other berry pies like it.

Basic recipe information

There are just a couple things to mention before getting started. You’ll want to make sure that your crust needs to chill for at least 1-hour when each half of the crust is premade. This helps to keep the butter that’s mixed into the flour doesn’t make the dough too mushy. This is why you start with chilled and cubed butter before you mix your flour together.

There is also tapioca pudding added to keep the filling from becoming too runny, so after your pie is baked and then cooled down, it will have just enough strength to hold all of your filling together and not spill everywhere when you slice into your Oregon blackberry pie.

Approximate prep time

This recipe takes only 30 minutes to prepare but could take slightly longer if you haven’t made an authentic cross-hatched pie crust before. You can always choose to make a mock cross-hatch that doesn’t take much effort to do if you lay vertical strips first and then add horizontal strips followed by a layer of the cream cheese crust topping.

Approximate bake time

This will take no more than 1-hour or so in a conventional kitchen oven. You’ll need to preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 C) and bake the finished pie for 15 minutes. After this, the temperature is reduced to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 C) and allowed to cook for 50 to 60 minutes more until the crust is golden brown.

Required equipment

  • 2 large mixing bowls
  • 1 small mixing bowl
  • 1 fork
  • 1 mixing spoon
  • 1 spatula
  • 1 pastry brush
  • 1 rolling pin
  • 1 pizza cutter (or knife)
  • 1 pie plate
  • 1 silicone pastry matt

Ingredients (in U.S. and Metric Measures)

For crust-

  • 2-cups (all-purpose) flour -(474ml)
  • cup chilled butter (whole butter) -(118.5ml)
  • 4 tablespoons ice water -(60ml)
  • 5 tablespoons shortening -(75ml)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice -(30ml)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar -(15ml)
  • 1 teaspoon salt -(5ml)

For filling-

  • 4 cups Marionberries (or fresh blackberries) -(948ml)
  • 1 pack cream cheese (8-ounces/ -(236.58ml)
  • 1 cup and 1 teaspoon sugar (divided in half) -(242ml)
  • 2 tablespoons with 2 teaspoons tapioca powder mix (quick mix) -(40ml)
  • cup sugar (confectioners) -(118.5ml)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice -(15ml)
  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream (or heavy cream) -(15ml)
  • teaspoon Almond extract -(2.5ml)
  • teaspoon Vanilla extract -(2.5ml)

Preparation and Directions

1. To start, you take a large bowl and start to add your dry ingredients first. This includes flour, salt, and sugar. Your butter is the next and should be chopped into cubes about the size of sugar cubes. It’s best when you chill your butter and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to add this. Mix your lemon juice into the ice water and then add only half and start to use a fork to make the chilled butter turn into little pellets.

You’ll add the rest of the chilled lemon water to gauge the consistency of your dough. You can do a test to see how well it clumps in your hand when this is pressed together. After this, separate your dough mixture into two and cover each with plastic cling wrap. Place these two balls into the fridge for 10-minutes or until the next step.

2. Into the second large mixing bowl, add your sugar, tapioca, and lemon juice, and mix these together to make a damp mixture. You then add the freshly cleaned and dried berries into the bowl so you can coat them. Let these sit for 15 minutes while you preheat your oven to 425 degrees (220 C). Take your silicone pastry matt and powder it with some flour. This is where you form the base for your pie.

Use the rolling pin to form a dough (from one of the dough balls) that’s no thinner than 1/8 inches thick (0.3175cm) and use the rolling pin to transfer this to a 9-inch pie form. Carefully pick up the edges to insert the dough into the inside edges of your pie form. Place this into the fridge until you need it next. There’s no need to trim off the excess just yet.

3. Using your small bowl you can add your cream cheese. Make sure this cream cheese has become room temperature so it’s easier to mix. Add your confectioners’ sugar and the extracts and mix these until you have a nice creamy consistency. Use a spatula to scoop this into the larger bowl with your berries. Now mix and fold them together until they are both coated. This can now be scooped out and added into the pie form and leveled off.

4. The second dough ball is now flattened out the same way that your pie form crust was made. Using a finger as a width guide, you’ll use this to eyeball the lines that you’ll cut into the dough to make the lattice cross-hatch crust top. A pizza cutter can work, although you can use a kitchen knife just as easy to cut thin -inch strips. This should be enough to start covering your pie.

If you haven’t much skill for making a crosshatch pattern, you can watch this tutorial video to make a professional lattice pie. After this, you can trim off the excess to -inch and tuck this back under toward your pie rim edge. Fluting is just a matter of pinching these edges to get that classic wavy pie shape. Using any leftover cream from the berry bowl with a pastry brush, you can seal your lattice (instead of using egg whites) and sprinkle sugar over the top.

5. Now all you do is place this into your oven for 15 minutes. After this tie has passed, reduce the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 C) and allow your pie to cook for 50 to 60 minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when the crust is golden brown and you can see the filling is bubbling through the lattice. Then remove your pie and allow it to cool for at least 3 to 4 hours. This allows the tapioca mixture to gel properly so you get gooey but not drippy slices.

Slicing directions

Slice your pie right down the middle and repeat this by turning it 180 degrees. This makes it easier to make 8 complete slices that can be removed using a pie spatula. Each piece should be able to be removed with no spill-out since the filling will be partially gelled.

Servings

This pie will serve up to 8 people with even slices divided in your pie form.

How to serve

Place each slice of your Oregon blackberry pie onto decorative dessert plates and serve with an optional scoop of ice cream. This pie by itself really doesn’t need ice cream like you might ad with apple pie, but it does add a touch of class if you add a fruity blackberry sorbet.

Cooking – How To Make A Classic Cherry Pie

A perfect recipe for any occasion is the Homemade Cherry Pie. It is a must-have recipe of all times. It s just to die for. Just take out a container, pour in batter, stick in cherries, and voila! You have a mouth-watering classic dessert.

To make this delicious recipe, start by using pitted cherries instead of fresh cherries. To maximize the cherries flavor, use whole pitted cherries, which have the most natural sweetness. Use freshly grated or shredded cherries. Alternatively, you can use frozen cherries instead. You can use 4 cups of juice instead of juice that comes from the container.

In a saucepan, combine two cups of all-purpose flour and one cup of freshly grated or shredded cherry juice. Bring to a gentle boil and reduce heat as needed to maintain even cooking. Turn off the heat and mix in your sugar, butter, vanilla, and baking soda, stirring until thoroughly combined.

Using your electric oven, cook your pie in your preheated oven for approximately 10 minutes. Once finished, allow it to cool on a wire cooling rack. If you choose to serve it right from the oven, preheat your oven to 350 f and line a baking sheet with unbroken aluminum foil. Line the baking sheet with pie plates, large and small. Place the cooled fruit mixture evenly on the baking sheet, being careful to leave about a half-inch between each piece of fruit.

In the meantime, prepare a water bath by filling a large pot halfway with cold water. Fit a tight lid on the pot and bring it to a boil. Drop-in your prepared mixture into the water bath and place your cherries into the water bath for 20 minutes. This will help them get to begin to soften up.

Now it’s time to remove your pie from the oven. Carefully remove the entire pan from the oven and place the uncooked pie directly onto a clean, dry surface. If you are planning on making a glaze, be sure to only use a pastry bag filled with the desired color or colors. Gather all of the dipped fruit and arrange them in a single layer on the bottom of your prepared dish. Refrigerate the dish until you are ready to assemble the rest of the dish.

Secure the lid and turn the oven off. While the pie is still warm, remove the prepared cherry filling from its package and pour the cooled filling into the center of the pie. Wait an additional five minutes before removing the pie from the oven. The pie should be fully cooled when you place it into your serving dish.

You can serve your dessert as soon as possible because room temperature mixtures will tend to harden quickly. The sugar syrup you put into the pie crust center will help keep the mixture from hardening out over time. If you plan on freezing the crust for future use, place it into the refrigerator once it has cooled completely. Once you have finished assembling your cherry pie, let it cool completely before frosting it.

As for the canned filling, you should use sweetened condensed milk. Use a food processor or blender to puree the canned filling. You will also want to add enough sugar to make the pie crust slightly crusty. You can make sure the canned filling is completely blended before you begin the process of baking the pie crusts.

For the actual baking process, you will need the following ingredients: a food processor or blender, Graham crackers, a 9-inch round cake pan, a wooden spoon, and a spray bottle with non-stick cooking spray. These items can be found at any store that sells small appliances. Line the bottom of the cake pan with Graham crackers and bake the cake in the preheated oven for approximately two hours. Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool. Line the prepared baking pie crusts with a wooden spoon and allow them to cool. Before you cut into the pies, you will want to make sure they are completely chilled until you are ready to assemble the finished product.

You will now want to prepare the filling. Place the can of cream and sugar into your food processor or blender and blend the ingredients until smooth. Then, you will want to add the canned or fresh fruit filling to the mixture. Mix the wet ingredients thoroughly into the dry ingredients until completely blended.

When the mixture is ready, you will want to prepare the flaky crust by mixing the flour and sugar together. The flour and sugar will create the best flaky pie crust recipe. Once you have mixed the dry ingredients together, turn out the pie crusts and gently roll them out until they are fully even. Once you are done, slice the flaky crust into 3 even pieces and place them onto your lined baking sheet.

Cooking – How To Make A Cherry Cobbler

A question that most people have is how to make a cherry Cobbler. It is easy enough to make, but it tastes even better when you are freshly made. Most people will tell you that you can make it the day before and reheat it later the same day. It is possible, but what happens if it is left over? Making a cherry Cobbler is important to know to make this simple recipe the best it can be.

The ingredients for making a cherry cobbler really are very simple. It begins with the basic cake recipe. You should already have the basic cake mix on hand. If you do not have one, go out and buy some. It will not take long to make, and then you will have all the ingredients necessary to get started.

One of the key ingredients to making a cherry cobbler is the actual fruit. It can be either fresh or canned. Most people prefer to use canned peach cobbler filling as it has a flavor that is more like a true peach. Some recipes call for a slightly more authentic taste from the actual fruit. In any event, just use the canned variety to avoid an allergy attack from the real fruit.

The second ingredient is the actual fruit. You should use either fresh or canned cherries. If you are using canned cherries, drain them before using them. They should be able to hold their shape when placed in the food processor. Be careful with handling the cherries to avoid an allergic reaction when the actual fruit juices up.

The third ingredient for making a cherry cobbler recipe is the actual cobbler itself. You need to make sure you bake it in the fully baked pan or in a hot oven. This allows for a more even cooking of the filling. Since the filling is baked, it will more nearly cook evenly. It is important to let the pan heat up completely before adding the other ingredients.

The fourth ingredient for making a cherry cobbler recipe is to stir the ingredients thoroughly. The best way to stir your mixture is with a wooden spoon or your fingers. This ensures all lumps are removed, so there are no chunks in your baked casserole dish. It also allows for a more even browning of the mixture. If you do not stir your ingredients thoroughly, you run the chance of the entire mixture burning.

The fifth ingredient is the final ingredient, the topping. To make the cherry cobbler topping the traditional way, you simply mix all the wet ingredients together and then sprinkle over the dry ingredients. It is important to make sure the mixture is properly mixed. The traditional topping is made using flour, salt, butter, and cream. To make a cherry cobbler with a preheated oven, you will mix the wet ingredients and then sprinkle them over the dry.

If you want to make cherry cobbler more attractive to look at, you can spray the outside of the baking dish with food coloring. This will add a wonderful look to the outside of the cake mix and make it more appealing. However, you can bake the cake mix without using any food coloring by following the recipe listed above.

Once you have your cherries and the cake mix prepared, you should check to see any leftovers from the recipe. Many times this recipe will include raisins or prunes or even dried fruit pieces. These items can be finely ground up and added to the recipe to enhance the flavor. You will also find that different bakers will use different flavors for their cherries topping. The recipe will specify whether the cake mix uses a simple white or yellow cake mix topping.

You will also find that many recipes will tell you to garnish the dish. This could either be with or without fruits. The fruit filling often comes after the cake mix, so you must pay attention to this instruction to affect the end product. Some recipes will also have you fill the dish with the appropriate amount of icing and then the cherries. Knowing how to bake a cake and make a great dessert recipe will help you create the perfect dish each time.

If you are a new baker, you will want to start off with a basic dessert recipe. Once you master how to bake a cake and make a delicious cake batter, you can move on to other more advanced recipes. Always use high-quality ingredients that are recommended by professional chefs. High-quality products will produce a delicious dish that everyone will enjoy.

Cooking – How To Make Grilled BBQ Chicken Thighs

These grilled BBQ chicken thighs are probably one of the family’s most favorite meals. Like most recipes, they’re very tasty and economical when you want to feed the family. This particular recipe is actually pretty easy, and using just a handful of spices and a few simple grilling techniques, you’ll be an accomplished BBQ Chicken Wing griller in no time! I’ll show you how to make these delicious thighs using only barbeque sauce and nothing else. When you try this recipe, you’ll realize that there is no substitute for a grilled piece of chicken.

Thawed Room Temperature Chicken

The first step is to make sure your chicken is completely thawed. I suggest either bringing it to room temperature or letting it defrost at room temperature for about an hour. This will help prevent the formation of bacteria and let you know when it’s ready to remove from the marinade. Once it’s defrosted, you can then begin checking for doneness:

Traditional BBQ Method

Now, I’d like to talk about the two methods you can use for grilling your chicken. First, let’s discuss the more traditional method of BBQ chicken, and that is direct heat. In a nutshell, you cook your chicken on a hot grill or on the hot side of a barbeque grill. Direct heat is really good for tenderizing proteins and giving your chicken nice, even grill marks. However, I prefer indirect heat for my barbecue chicken because it doesn’t produce the common burnt or char marks common with direct heat. I prefer indirect heat because it gives better results (especially lighter proteins such as skinless chicken).

Quick Brine BBQ Method

Another common method of BBQ chicken is quick brine. A quick brine is when you pour a mixture of water and vinegar onto the meat and allow it to sit for about an hour. This will cause the meat to be moistened and give it a natural taste. I’ve found that a homemade vinegar quick brine is best if you’re cooking a chicken that’s not going to go well with barbecue sauce.

Seasoning

Making grilled BBQ chicken thighs is based on two principles: the dry rub or BBQ Sauce and the cooking time. The dry rub is a mixture of spices that provide a unique flavor to the chicken thighs. I like to use cumin, red pepper flakes, garlic, salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Most of the recipes I’ve seen call for tomato paste as the second ingredient, but you can use what you have on hand, or if you have a spicy chicken dish, add more of the spices mentioned to bring out the flavor even more.

Cooking Time

The cooking time refers to the duration of time from grilling until the chicken is done. Once the chicken is done, let it rest for about two minutes before flipping. Remove the chicken from the grill and allow it to cool on a wire cooling rack. Depending on the recipe, you may have to cook the chicken a second time. It depends on the thickness of the chicken and what the recipe calls for.

Conclusion

Making grilled BBQ chicken thighs is really very simple, but I would recommend cooking it the same way every time. I find that using a thin slice of ginger makes everything taste so much better, especially on a hot summer day. If you’re looking for a really great way to impress your friends and family with an amazing taste, consider trying the “cale” recipe, which uses a bbq sauce flavored with crushed garlic, lemon juice, and cumin.

Cooking – Making A Macaroni Salad

Are you a true Italian fan? If so, then your knowledge of the many different types of pasta is extensive. Pasta is a foundational part of Italian cuisine and is used in countless cooking recipes around the world. For years now, Americans have enjoyed this delicious specialty made right in our own kitchens-until now. The great news is that it’s now possible to buy all kinds of authentic Italian pasta from your own home and to enjoy it at the same low cost at home that Italian restaurants charge for their meals.

With the right recipe and a little work, even the “cheap” pasta from your own kitchen can taste very good. By making the pasta from scratch, you will not only get better-tasting pasta, but you will also notice that it is much lower in calories. Cooking pasta from scratch is also a lot of fun, and you’ll find that you don’t get tired of it as quickly as you might if you were to purchase store-bought pasta.

Do you ever find yourself looking for a new way to make pasta? If so, why not try making a salad? A salad adds that little something extra to your dinner that can’t be beaten. When you cook pasta in a salad bowl, you are taking the delicious taste of the pasta and incorporating it into the large chunks of crunchy vegetables that give a healthy boost to any meal. Here are some great tips to help you prepare delicious pasta salads for your next cooking adventure:

One of the most important things to remember when cooking pasta is that you should always use fresh ingredients.- Choose your ingredients carefully. Even if you buy pre-packaged pasta, the pasta may have been sitting on a store shelf for several weeks before you purchase it. Therefore, whenever you are preparing your pasta, be sure to purchase it fresh. Using pasta that has been on the shelf too long deminishes the flavor and texture of your pasta salad.

– Choose your best vegetables. For your deli macaroni salad, I recommend using elbow macaroni or other types of short pasta that are both very flavorful and easy to chew. By using these varieties, you will be adding many different leafy greens and vegetables to your pasta, resulting in a unique flavor that is not found with other varieties. Another great idea for an Italian-inspired salad is using tomatoes and red onions.

Once you have created your pasta mixture, mix it with olive oil, chopped prosciutto, chopped basil, and shredded Romano cheese.- Mix your pasta and ingredients together. Make sure your mixture is well mixed before spooning it over the top of your heated macaroni. You want your salad to be creamy and rich rather than runny.

The next step is to thoroughly bake your macaroni pasta salad.- Bake your macaroni. In the oven or grill your macaroni, allow it to finish cooking completely. Remove it from the grill or oven once the bottom begins to appear dry and the cheese begins to melt. Let it sit for five to ten minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

With your Italian inspired deli macaroni pasta salad, you are going to be left with a wonderful salad to serve to your family and friends. It is going to be a hit at any parties that you are hosting. Your family and guests are going to love it too! Best of all, it will be a healthy option that taste better than your local grocery store version.

Cooking – How To Make A No Bake Key Lime Pie

A no-bake (icebox) jello cake is so easy to make that your kids will think they’re at home baking it. You can have a no-bake jello cake for breakfast, dessert, or a snack any time of the day. The key to this delicious cake recipe is making the right choice of jello. There are so many different flavors and colors of jello, but not all of them are good for cooking.

This no-bake pie is so good that some people may even make it their family recipe. With just three basic ingredients, the pie filling only has 3 basic ingredients: key lime pie mix, pecan crust, and yogurt. It only takes about twenty minutes to make it. Then, after you let it cool down in the fridge for a couple hours, it is ready to serve! Best of all, this pie is absolutely delicious!

The key to eating this delicious pie is to cut the key ingredient in half. There is no need to use a pie cutter or a knife because it is so thick that it goes through fingers easily. There are a couple of ways to do this. The first is to make a really thin layer of the key ingredient and then top that with the pecan crust. Obviously, the thinner the crust, the fewer calories per serving.

A thinner crust makes it more like a soup than a pie. But, it is still much healthier than traditional pie ingredients. When you top it off, you get a thicker, chewier, and more delicious pie. However, if you decide to use the thinner crust, you might need to add a little extra calories per serving, just to add a little something to the recipe.

To make sure that you have enough jello powder, just mix together the required amount of lime zest, sour cream, yogurt, whipped topping, and jello powder. You can also add a small number of frozen cherries, but try to stay away from honey. This will make the pie slightly sweeter, but it does not make it taste too cloying. If you add too much honey, the key ingredients may become too clumpy, which won’t enhance the flavor of your dessert.

It is important to note that you should leave out the sugar while using any of the low-calorie whipped topping for your key lime pie. It is unnecessary to use both syrup and sugar. The syrup and the sugar give the pie its delicious flavor, but it is the fresh fruit that you should use that provides the most calories per serving. If you use just a bit of the sugary syrup, you will avoid the calories by using less of the key lime pie. There are other ways to reduce the calories per serving without decreasing the delicious flavor of the pie.

You could also substitute just a bit of fat-free cream or pudding for the cream cheese. Also, you could bake your no-bake pie in an aluminum pan that has been filled with just a tiny bit of water to help prevent the ingredients from sinking to the bottom. This will help you keep the rich and creamy texture of the pie intact, along with allowing you to enjoy dessert as you would want to.

Baking your own key lime pie allows you to control the ingredients and flavors you put into the pie. It also allows you to determine the temperature and time of the baking process. The key to reducing the number of calories you take in when making this dessert is to make the appropriate changes to the recipe. By varying the amount of sweetened cream, you can greatly reduce the calories you are taking in.

Cooking – How To Make A Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

It is time to learn how to make a strawberry rhubarb pie. This delicious pastry has quickly become the dessert of choice for many people, young and old alike. In fact, strawberry rhubarb pie is so popular that it’s hard to imagine eating it without one! The sweet-and-sour flavor is perfect for summer barbecue events, pool parties, and any other kind of outdoor occasion.

If you decide to bake with fresh rhubarb rather than a store-bought canned or frozen version, you’ll want to find a piecrust recipe to match. Just like any other baked dessert, a good pie crust needs to be floured with vegetable shortening (at least 10 times harder than shortening purchased at the grocery store). Be sure not to use coarsely ground sugar. The goal of a good pie crust is to have it as smooth as possible.

Once the flour is mixed with shortening, it will need to be cooked on a hot griddle until it begins to burn. You’ll want to avoid touching the hot grill with your finger because you do not want any sugar to cook out of the rhubarb. If the strawberry mixture begins to burn, remove it from the heat source and mix the ingredients until combined. Then, you can add the rhubarb and spread it evenly on top of your pie.

If you want to know how to make a strawberry rhubarb pie, one of the best things you can do is use fresh, organic rhubarb. The skin is very fragile, and it can easily be cracked and damaged during the cooking process. You should use a pie pan that has a non-stick surface and which has a removable bottom. This is important because you do not want your pie crust to stick to the sides of your pie.

One of the easiest methods for how to make a strawberry rhubarb pie is to use fresh fruit. Choose a rhubarb that is in its prime and fresh strawberries. Or, if you want variety, the strawberries can be substituted for fresh cherries or raspberries. Once you have chosen your favorite fruits, cut them into matchstick-sized chunks. Once you have them prepared, you are ready to start the pie crust.

When the pieces of fruit are ready, you will want to roll out the mixture onto a baking sheet. The baking sheet you choose will depend on the size of your pie pan. If you have a smaller pan, you may want to use a rectangular sheet. Next, use a tablespoon of flour to grease the bottom of the pan. You will also need to use food coloring if you are not using chocolate. Next, add your filling.

You will want to roll out your pie dough to about twice the thickness of the dough. Next, you will cut your piece of pie crust dough in half and spread half on the bottom half of the rhubarb pie shell. Fill the bottom pie crust with the prepared strawberry-rhubarb filling.  Next, you will place your top crust over the filling and start crimping the crust edges. Decorative vent the pie crust.

Brush with egg white wash and enhancement with huge granule sugar. Collar with thwart and prepare at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes. Drop the temperature to 375 degrees F and heat for an extra 45 to 50 minutes, or until the filling begins foaming. Higher elevation will take 450 degrees F and 400 degrees F separately. Likewise, you can utilize a pie bird for additional style. Let cool prior to serving.

Cooking – How To Make A Blackberry Pie

If you enjoy Blackberry Pie, you will definitely want to try making your own at home. This easy recipe is a classic in its own right. With just a few steps, you can have homemade pie in an instant! Best of all, it’s not too expensive to make, which makes it a perfect Sunday morning or even occasional dinner treat for your family.

How To Make A Blackberry Pie: Start with a store-bought or homemade pie crust. Preferably, it has already been baked and thin enough to easily fill it with your fruit filling. Next, take your blackberries (frozen or fresh is best) and mix them together with your favorite sugar, cranberry juice, apple juice, and water to form your filling.

Now it’s time to decorate and bake your delicious pie filling. To do this, first, make sure your pie filling is completely smooth and spreadable. You can use a cookie cutter to do this, but a food processor or a pastry bag would be even better. Next, take your cookie cutter and slowly cut the fruit filling in half. The nice thing about using a cookie cutter is that you can create designs on the top crust, such as dots or stars. After the filling has cooled completely, you can now add your decorations.

Use a small cookie cutter to poke holes in the top crust of the pie shell. Then use the fork to transfer the filling from the cookie-cutter onto your hot baked pie. You can now fill up the rest of the pie with the fruit filling and fold the edges of the pie over to seal the freshness of the fruit filling. You can add the lemon slices, whipped cream, and Graham crackers if you wish. If you prefer your dessert with a little bit of chocolate, you can place a scoop of melted dark chocolate onto the hot pie.

If you’d like a slightly richer treat, try spicing up your pies with some raisins or almonds. You can add a bit of sugar to the raisins or almonds to help bring out the natural sweetness of the fruit. Alternatively, you can add chopped pecans or walnuts to the lattice. Just be sure to avoid adding too much sugar or syrup to the lattice. Pecans and walnuts are especially good combined with the classic chocolate cake recipe.

Blackberry pie crusts can also be made without using a pie crust. You can make these pies just as you normally would but wrap the filling in pastry crust instead.
