This was also in my mother's handwritten cookbook. I made it for the Jefferson County Fair on August 28, 2010 and it won 3 awards: 1) First Place, Champion, and Best in Show. I always make a double batch of this - it never lasts long!
A winning recipe, indeed! The blackberries came out perfectly tender and the dough crisped up just right... Mmmm, I wish I had a piece right now!
