Recipe: Apple and Blackberry Pie

Recipe: Apple and Blackberry Pie

My good friend Estelle is an awesome baker. She is an expert in crust, and whether it is for a pie or for a quiche, she knows how to work the dough better than me. She once made this beautiful apple pie with blackberries, and it was the best that I have ever had. I got my hands on the recipe and I am now sharing it with you. I have to admit that I didn’t have enough apples at home, so this pie is more flat than what the recipe would be if adding the full amount of apples. It is however still good, we enjoyed it for Thanksgiving. If you want to skip the blackberries, add ½ pound of apples.
