Ingredients

    Pastry:
    2 1/4 cups of flour
    1 teaspoon of salt
    3/4 cup Crisco shortening

    Blackberry Filling

Directions

Pastry:
Make the pastry as per Crisco instructions. Divide the ball in half and roll out to make two pie shells. Prick the pastry shells all over with a fork. Bake at 425F for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool. Save one pie shell for another use.
Filling:
Crush and sieve one cup of the berries to remove most of the seeds. Combine the sieved berries with the cornstarch, sugar and water and cook over medium heat about 10 minutes until clear and thick. Mix in the lemon juice and 4 cups of berries and pile into the 2 baked pastry shells. Chill for several hours. Can be served with whipped cream or softened ice cream.

  • Sounds delicious but I am staying away from Crisco right now. I could use the wonderful filling though as a side dish. - 8/14/09
