BLACKBERRY SOUR CREAM PIE — Fresh or frozen blackberries, sour cream, and a few pantry staples come together in this delightful pie that will quickly become a family favorite!
The first time I made this Blackberry Sour Cream Pie, I unknowingly bought way too many blackberries, so I decided to just go ahead and make two pies.
Oh my goodness! I’m so glad I did, because both of them were gone within 24 hours. I do have three hungry boys to feed (four if you count my husband), but still, I think that’s some kind of record.
I made this recipe today using blackberries I picked from the bushes along our lane in North Carolina. It was easy to make and delicious. It will be made again once I have picked enough berries for the next pie. ~ Kathryn
Honestly, when my oldest son chose this pie for dessert one weekend, I wasn’t all that excited about it. It just didn’t look like much of a pie to me.
And the short and strange ingredient list had me worried too. I should know by now that my kids have quite a knack for choosing delicious recipes, and this pie was no exception.
To say we all loved it would be an understatement. And it was so easy!
I know blackberry pie might not be a long-standing tradition on the Thanksgiving table, but I am definitely adding it to our menu. Sometimes, you just need to start new traditions!
My granddaughter made this pie for a family supper and my husband when crazy for it. I asked her to send me the recipe and she emailed me the link to this web site.
I am so glad she did, I am amazed at all the delicious looks recipes and I can’t wait to try some of them! ~ Sherry
*Note: You can use fresh or frozen blackberries, but the cooking times are quite different, so be sure to make note of that in the recipe. I used frozen berries and a Marie Callender frozen pie crust.

Tips for Choosing and Storing Blackberries
Appearance: Look for berries that are deep purple to black in color, and are plump and firm to the touch. Avoid berries that look wrinkled or dried out.
Berries should be glossy, with no signs of crushing, bruising, or mold.
Storing: Do not wash blackberries until you are ready to use them. Keep blackberries in a shallow container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
To freeze blackberries, arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place them in the freezer for a few hours, then pour the frozen berries into a large zip-top plastic bag or container. Frozen berries will keep for up to 10 months.
