Your favorite double pie crust recipe or refrigerator pie crust.
5-6 cups fresh or partially frozen blackberries
1 cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter softened
1 tablespoon beaten egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place dough in a 9 inche pie plate. Combine berries, sugar, cornstarch, salt, butter and lemon juice and place in crust. Roll out the second crust and either cut strips to make a lattice top, weaving the strips together or cover and crimp and flute edges and cut slits in the top.
With a pastry brush, brush a light coating of the egg white wash over your crust.
Bake 60 minutes until golden and bubbly. If the crust starts to get too brown, cover it with aluminum foil at the edges.
