So what do you do when you feel like life handed you a bowl of these….
Lemon Blackberry Pie
2 egg whites
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup zested lemon peel
3/4 cup fresh lemon juicE
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup fresh blackberries
Pre-heat oven to 400°. Follow package directions for pie shell, which should include allowing package to set on counter for approximately 20 minutes. Place pie shell in pie plate, crimping edges. Prick bottom of pie shell several times with fork and dust lightly with flour. Line pastry with double thickness of tinfoil. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes, until pastry is golden. Cool on wire rack and reduce oven to 350°.
In a large bowl combine eggs, egg whites, sugar and lemon juice. Beat with electric mixer on medium to high speed until think and lemon colored. Stir in the melted butter and the zested lemon peel. Place blackberries on bottom of baked pie shell. Pour lemon mixture over blackberries. Bake approximately 30 minutes or until lemon mixture is set. Cool on wire rack.
P.S. If you are struggling to find Joy in your life I want to recommend a great book by John Piper: When I Don’t Desire God:How to Fight for Joy

What a lovely message in this post! I needed to be reminded of those wonderful verses today. :o)
What a wonderful post, thank you! The pie looks so good too! 🙂
oh sweet girls. so needed this. we have a little issue going on in our house and i’m spending a lot of time on my knees.
Maybe..there’s a way to put a prayer linky on the right or something like that that we could throw our name in for prayer requests so we could all pray the list – no need for details – just a name to lift up or blog name?
Regardless, i’m so enjoying this blog so far ladies. 🙂
