Pie of the month: Batali Family Blackberry Pie

C's fourth anniversary gift continues with a fruit pie for the new year: blackberry pie. When I found that Mario Batali had a blackberry pie recipe, I knew that was the winner. C loves Babbo in NYC, so how could he not love a Batali fruit pie? This pie was exceedingly easy and I will be making it again. As an added bonus, it is National Pie Day, what a way to celebrate!

I used Martha Stewart's pate brise recipe, increased by 50% to get a nice two crust pie crust.

4 cups fresh blackberries
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Put the blackberries in a bowl and toss gently with the sugar and flour. Drizzle with the lemon juice and toss gently again.

Transfer the berries to the pie shell and dot with the butter. Cover the filling with the dough, trim the excess dough, and crimp the edges with a fork to seal. Cut a few steam vents in the center of the crust. Bake in a 350°F oven for 1 hour, or until the crust is golden brown and the juices are bubbling. Let cool on a rack for at least 15 minutes, and devour.
