Black Berry Pie

Growing up in the pacific northwest, my favorite after school snack at the beginning of the school year was a heated slice of blackberry pie in a bowl full of cold milk (whole of course). For the first time in about 13 years I baked a blackberry pie. With the exception of a couple slices I brought over to C & B's house, I ate the whole thing and loved every bite!

This is the pie filling recipe that came from my dad's mom Virginia:
4 c blackberries
1 to 1 1/2 c sugar (I use 1 c)
1/3 c flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 1/2 tbs butter

1. Mix the dry ingredients
2. Mix the dry stuff with berries
3. Pour in pie shell
4. Put cubes of butter on top
5. Cover with crust
6. Bake at 425 for 35-45 minutes.

If you're lucky, I may share my pie crust recipe in the future.

happy baking
