Mrs. Langrehr’s Blackberry Roly Poly

Last Thursday, Don shared a memory of his mother’s delicious Blackberry Roly Poly.  As promised…here is the recipe.

Blackberry Roly Poly


  • Pie crust – years ago this was prepared from scratch, these days you can pick one up in a Pillsbury can in the dairy section of your grocery.
  • 2 cups of blackberries *
  • 3/4 cup of sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Roll out your pie crust until it is about 1/4 of an inch thick and a rectangular shape.
  3. Spread the berries over the crust.
  4. Sprinkle with sugar
  5. Roll dough into a log, wet the ends of the crust slightly and pinch to seal the top and ends.
  6. Place on baking sheet and bake for approximately 1 hour or until golden brown.
  7. Slice and serve warm, topped with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (or both!)

*Raspberries could be substituted if  we couldn’t find enough blackberries and there was also another berry that grew wild all over the woods, a little smaller than a Blueberry and almost black, called a Huckleberry.  We needed a lot but they were tasty.

Thanks to Don Langrehr, from Thoughts for Thursday, for sharing his mother’s delicious recipe mentioned last week.  Enjoy!
