Pie Mania: Blackberry Rhubarb and Raspberry Rhubarb Pies

I went a little nuts making pies. I blame two things: 1) my love of it and 2) Twin Peaks. Jason and I had a little bit of a marathon, which included a lot of baking.

For the pie crust, I used my grandma’s flour crust recipe. Which is great as it makes 4 to 5 pie crusts and is easy to refrigerate or freeze if you need to use the rest another day. And if you have some extra, as I did, you can make flaky cookies.

I used the rhubarb from my grandparents’ garden that I’d frozen that summer. Also used some frozen blackberries and raspberries.
