Blackberry pie slice

In the local area there are loads of bramble bushes and you no longer have to wait until October for blackberries – the bushes are heaving with them now. I managed to collect two boxes full but didn’t have the apples for a crumble, so Pinterest to the rescue for two things – a good recipe to try, and whilst looking for that, a site showed up about how to freeze blackberries properly.

I had enough blackberries to freeze half and make this recipe too. You start with a pastry-like mix, which is pressed into a dish or tin, and then you add a syrupy blackberry mix before finally crumbling the remaining ‘pastry’ on top. It all ends up like a mix of blackberry pie and crumble, but all in a handy to hold slice.

It was easy to make, though not so easy to tell when it was done – maybe use a Pyrex dish so you can see through the glass to the pastry base. It tasted delicious but next time (with the blackberries I froze!) I’d use less lemon zest and juice as it did overpower slightly. Also, I’d keep it in the fridge, as it goes soggy very quickly!

Get in my belly!
