Anybody have any fun Fourth of July plans? I have a delicious pie recipe for you that would be a fun addition to any Independence Day event! I know, I know apple pie is the all American pie, but this Blackberry Almond Crumb Pie is summery, festive, and delicious.
We still have not decided how we want to spend our weekend. We tossed around camping, swimming, or going to water world. The girls are also really excited to get fireworks. Josh usually has fun taking them to get fireworks every year and on the actual fourth we like to light them in our driveway. This blackberry almond crumb pie will be a great dessert to enjoy while we do that.
Crumb Pies are a mix between pies and crisp. In my opinion you cannot go wrong with that ever! You roll out a single crust for the bottom, fill it with the wonderful sweetened blackberries, and top with the crumb mixture of oats, flour, almonds, brown sugar, and butter.
The addition of sliced almonds to the mixture gives this pie and incredible nutty flavor and gives the crisp another layer of texture. It all goes very well with the blackberries.
The color and presentation of this pie is beautiful. I’m telling you if you are looking for a dessert for this weekend, I have you covered!
Oh and don’t forget the scoop of vanilla ice cream right on top. Happy Fourth of July everyone!
