Texas Blackberry Pie
Luscious! Perfect served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Combine the sugar, tapioca, cinnamon and orange peel in a medium bowl. Stir in the blackberries and water. Set aside for 15 minutes.
- Pour berry mixture into a 9-inch unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter. Cover with top crust, seal edges and crimp. If a lattice crust is not used, put one or several vents in the crust. Bake at 450°F for 10 minutes. Then reduce oven setting to 350°F and bake an additional 35 to 40 minutes longer until crust is brown.
