Fresh Blackberry Pie

I grew up picking wild blackberries and dewberries for making pies and jelly. It was a hot job picking those berries, having to wear long sleeves and pants so we wouldn't get to scratched up too bad from those wicked berry thorns. I still try and go find some wild blackberries every year to make a fresh pie. Eating a warm piece of blackberry pie is simply divine!
