Blackberry Pie Filling and the Cools Pie Crust

While I haven't tried it, I'm sure you could use honey or a substitute sweetener for this recipe. They're berries! They're already pretty sweet.

Blackberry Pie
5 cups of blackberries
3/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. flour
Place on already prepared 9'' double pie crust, top with more crust. Poke air holes. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.

Pie Crust
3 c. flour
1 1/4 c. shortening (or butter if you want it healthier, it is slightly denser, though)
1 t. salt
Cut in shortening/butter.

Mix together in separate bowl:
1 egg
5 T water
1 T vinegar

Add to flour mixture. May add a tiny bit more water if needed. Roll out into 9" circles. Makes 2 double crusts. (That means 4 circles all together)
