Blackberry Crumble Pie

6 to 8 servings
  • For the Pie Crust:
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces cold unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • For the filling:
  • 4 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger
  • For the crumble:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup toasted slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 4 ounces melted butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. For the Pie crust: In a food processor, combine the flour, salt and butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the water and pulse just until the dough begins to come together. Do not overprocess. Turn the dough onto a floured board and shape into a flat disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll out the dough to a 10-inch circle that is 1/8-inch thick. Place in a 9-inch pie dish and blind bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely. For the filling: In a large bowl, gently mix together the blackberries, sugar, flour, lemon juice and ginger. Pour the mixture into the cooled pie shell. For the Crumble: In a bowl, mix together the flour, almonds, sugar and cardamom. Mix in the melted butter. Top the pie with the crumble and place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the crumb topping is golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool completely.

    The best I have ever had! I did not make the crust, used store bought frozen. The fresh ginger with the blackberries is a must and makes the filling. The topping with the green cardamom and using real butter is melt in your mouth. I am now taking the topping recipe and using the recipe for Cin-ful Peach Cobbler. Can not wait, as in oven now. A keeper for sure
    So I made this recipe a little different.. 
    I did not make the crust, just the filling and the crumble. I omitted the spices other than sugar 
    and I subbed brown sugar for the crumble, as well as whole wheat flour for the recipe. 
    AWESOME! lol  
    so I would say go for it, I bet the original is good, my spin was tasty!
    I make this with fresh blackberries from my yard. The ginger and cardamon give it a refreshingly different twist! Everyone I have made it for has loved it. Everyone in my office devoured it and asked when I was making it again. I am adding it to my family favorites.
    Even tho I like cardamom and ginger, the flavor combination did not work for me. It stayed in the fridge - no one in the family liked it - and my husband and I have pretty adventurous tastebuds. Sorry!
    This is really yummy but maybe not for pie traditionalists. The ginger and cardamom give it a spiciness that's great for sophisticated palates--probably not for kids.
    This was so easy and absolutely fabulous!
    I used a pre-made pie crust even! This is a keeper.
    This incredibly simple recipe yielded the most amazing pie! If you love cardamon and blackberries, you will LOVE this recipe.
    Super yummy & easy. Doesn't get better than that! I even cheated and used frozen berries and pre-made crust. Didn't have fresh ginger or cardamom and was still great!
    I made this pie for my dad's birthday last weekend and my whole family loved it! I made a few alterations by only using a teaspoon of ginger and instead of cardamom, I added a dash of ginger and nutmeg to the crumble.

    The pie was gone in about 12 hours, no kidding. I will definitely make this again.
    I love this pie. It was so easy to make and the ginger gives the pie unique and delicious flavor. It is one of my favorites.
    I put 1/2 teaspoon of salt because of one negative review.
    to much salt in crust not a whole lot of flavor
    Having taken advantage of an unexpected sale on blackberries a few days ago, I was looking for a quick recipe, and had nothing on hand. FoodNetwork delivered. This was fantastic. I served it warm with vanilla ice cream. Hubby loved it, too.
    This was absolutly delicious. I would defintely make it again.
    Today I won a local pie baking contest using this recipe as the base. I did add shaved dark chocolate to crust and a blackberry coulis for final topping
    This pie was so easy to make and hardly cooled down before it was completely devoured. Yum, yum!
