Blackberry and Apple Pie (made with hand picked blackberries!)

Blackberries are so easy to find in the wild over the summer, and with all this hot weather they're growing in abundance! I love blackberry picking; it always feels (and tastes) so much better baking with ingredients you have hand picked yourself. I have always wanted to make a pie, so settled on an absolute classic - blackberry and apple pie!

I decided to make my own sweet pastry using this recipe, and was pretty pleased with how it turned out, apart from adding a bit too much milk and having to save it from turning into a sticky mess! I then followed this recipe to create the pie. It was actually surprisingly easy to bake, and I love the traditional rustic effect of the lattice top. For my first ever pie I was very pleased with how it turned out - no dreaded soggy bottom (GBBO reference, people)! Serve warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and you've got yourself a delicious summertime treat!

Have you got any favourite blackberry treats? I'd love to know about them, comment below!
