Seven more days until our “Pie auction” Tuesday, August 31st – 5.00 pm onwards.

I thought I would throw out a few ideas for delicious pie recipes for people stuck for what pie to make for our auction.  Happy pie making!

This is a great recipe for an apple and blackberry recipe – especially if you have apples growing in your garden and blackberries in your neighbourhood!


  • 1 pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
  • 5 cups thinly sliced, peeled cooking apples
  • 1 pint fresh blackberries, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water or milk
  • Additional sugar


  1. Place bottom pastry in a 9-in. pie plate; top with a thin layer of apples. Combine blackberries and remaining apples in a large bowl; sprinkle with lemon juice. Add sugar and cornstarch and toss gently. Spoon into pie shell; dot with butter. Top with a lattice crust; seal edges. Combine egg and water or milk; brush over lattice top and pie edges. Bake at 375 degrees F for 50 minutes or until filling is bubbly and apples are tender. Sprinkle with additional sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.
