  1. Blackberry hand pies made with store bought crust and JAM…….no REAL blackberries………..what? Don’t think so!

    • Hi Marilynn! This recipe calls for our homemade Blackberry Jam that has tons of fresh blackberries in it. If you click Blackberry Jam in the ingredient list, it will take you to our recipe. We used store-bought pie crust to make these hand pies as simple and quick as possible, but feel free to substitute it with your favorite scratch-made pie crust recipe!
