Black-and-Blue Pie with Brown Sugar Crumb 

For the Filling: – 3 cups fresh blackberrie – 3 cups fresh blueberrie – 1/2 cup granulated sugar – 1/4 cup all-purpose flour – 1 tablespoon cornstarch – 1 tablespoon lemon juice – Zest of 1 lemon

For the Crumb Topping: – 1 cup all-purpose flour – 1/2 cup packed brown sugar – 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon – Pinch of salt – 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cube

Step 2: Preheat the Oven Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9-inch pie dish with butter or non-stick cooking spray.

Step 3: Prepare the Filling In a large mixing bowl, combine the blackberries, blueberries, granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon zest, ground cinnamon, and salt. Gently toss the mixture until the berries are evenly coated.

Step 4: Make the Crumb Topping In a separate bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and salt for the crumb topping. Add the cold cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or fork to cut it into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

Step 5: Assemble the Pie Transfer the berry filling into the prepared pie dish, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the filling, covering it completely.

Step 6: Bake the Pie Place the pie dish on a baking sheet (to catch any drips) and bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the crumb topping is golden brown.

Step 7: Cool and Serve Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for at least 1 hour before serving. This will allow the filling to set slightly. 

Serve slices of the black-and-blue pie warm or at room temperature, optionally topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
