This was definitely a beautiful pie and it sliced great while holding together. I was hoping for a more 'natural' pie without the added gelatin and food coloring. I could have left out the food coloring though and probably wouldn't have been able to tell a difference. It tasted good but I think there is probably a better blackberry pie out there.
Fresh Blackberry Pie

Served this pie last night to 8 people and they all said it was definitely a keeper! I made a few minor changes to the recipe: used about 2 1/2 cups of fresh blackberries (enough to cover the bottom of crust), used Blackberry Fusion flavored gelatin instead of raspberry and no food coloring. Also I just rolled the (chilled) fresh blackberries in the 1/4 cup of white sugar and what the blackberries didn't absorb in the first 5 minutes I discarded.(With the blackberries already chilled there was no wait to finish assembling the pie.) Served the slices with whip cream (I used a carton of whipping cream and mixed in just enough powdered sugar to slightly sweeten it and 1 tsp. real vanilla. People asked when I would be making it again :)
