Ingredients:
4 to 5 cups of fresh blackberries

1/4 cup flour
1 Tbs. corn starch
Butter
1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions:
1. Mix blackberries with lemon juice and lemon zest then add sugar, flour, and corn starch. Be careful not to over mix because the blackberries will begin to juice up. 2.

Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the top and cut notches in the top of crust. 5. Bake in the oven at 450º F. for 10 minutes. 6. Turn oven down to 350º F. and bake another 35 to 40 minutes or until brown.
