Iron Skillet Blackberry Pie


5 cups blackberries {I used fresh berries}
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all- purpose flour
1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 double pie crust


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Toss blackberries with granulated sugar, cinnamon, flour and 2 tablespoons of butter cut up into bits. Set aside.

Melt 1/3 cup butter in an 8-inch cast iron skillet. Once melted whisk in brown sugar and stir until the brown sugar has dissolved.

Line cast iron skillet with 1 pie crust {the butter and brown sugar goodness will be beneath the pie crust}. Add berry filling. Top filling with remaining pie crust, shape the edges and brush with egg wash {egg and eater}.

Carefully cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes {Be sure and place a cookie sheet on a lower rack to catch any juices}. Remove foil and cook for another 30 minutes or until the juices are bubbling and the top is a nice golden brown.

Cool and serve with homemade vanilla bean ice cream.
