Pie # 8 Blackberry Pie

I made this a week ago and am just getting around to posting it now... My mom spontaneously bought a miniature pie plate for me so I was able to eat this pie within 24 hours. By myself. (Printable version)

Make a half recipe of the all shortening crust.

2 cups blackberries
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons tapioca
3 tablespoons water (A little confused about this addition, but I went with it.)
1 tablespoon butter

Make crust. Combine berries, sugar, tapioca and water. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 and bake for 20-25 more minutes.

And yes, this awesome new pie plate came with a press to make adorable pie tops. 

Break up butter into small pieces and dot along the top of filling before finishing the pie. Don't forget to sprinkle with raw sugar before you place pie in oven.
