Pie Recipes #224 - Crazy Granny's Blackberry Pie

Thanks again to Linda from Alabama for sending in this pie recipe. :) Not sure if her GRANNY was crazy, or the pie matter, it sounds great!

1 unbaked pie crust
4 cups fresh blackberries, washed and drained
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
4 TBSP self-rising flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the crust and place in the pie
plate. Pour in berries. Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt in a
bowl. Pour in cream; mix well with a spoon (don't use mixer!). Pour
over berries. Bake at 350 degrees until the center is set, about 1
hour. Cool before serving; best served after being refrigerated. Can
be slightly reheated if you want it to melt the ice cream you put on

NOTE:I used 1 cup of whipping cream and 1/2 cup of skim milk in the
recipe and it worked beautifully. Crazy Granny said to cook for 35-
45 minutes, but both times I made it, it actually took closer to 1
hour and 15 minutes. This is a lovely pie to look at, as well as
scrumptious to eat :). A nice make-ahead dessert for a company
dinner. Enjoy.
