Mini Blackberry Pies

A few weeks ago, someone gave me a huge container of blackberries. But that was when we had a million things going on and were hardly ever even home. So I stuck them in the freezer and, until today, forget all about them. When I looked through the freezer and found them, I decided to take them out and make something with them. I looked for a blackberry pie recipe, but after much deliberation, decided to make mini pies in ramekins. We all know mini anything is so much cuter and more fun than regular sized! These aren't the prettiest looking desserts but man, they are good! Especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Oh, and yes, this is kind of the cheaters' version of blackberry pie, because it uses ready-made pie crust, but that was the best only took 5 minutes to prepare!

Mini Blackberry Pies
from, written as I made it

4 c. blackberries
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. flour
1 pkg. of refrigerated pie crusts
2 tbsp. milk
sugar for sprinkling on top

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Combine berries, sugar, and flour in a large bowl. Using one pie crust, cut out pieces to fit into the bottom of 8 ramekins, with a little extra hanging over the edge. Spoon blackberry mixture on top of dough. Using the other pie crust, cut out pieces to fit on top of the blackberry mixture. Press edges of bottom piece and top piece together, to make a seam. Brush a little bit of milk on top of pies and sprinkle with a little sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until tops start to brown.
