Recipe from

Oxmoor House

Ingredients

4 cups fresh blackberries or 2 (16-ounce) packages frozen blackberries, thawed
1 cup sugar, divided
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Preparation

Divide pastry into thirds. Roll one portion into an 8-inch square on a lightly floured surface; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.

Roll another portion of pastry to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; fit into an 8- inch square baking dish.

Place half of blackberries in prepared baking dish. Top with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon flour; dot with 1 tablespoon butter. Cover with baked pastry square, remaining blackberries, sugar, flour, and butter.

Roll remaining pastry to 1/8- inch thickness; cut into fourteen 10- x 1/2-inch strips. Arrange strips in a lattice design over blackberries. Press ends gently to seal strips to pastry overhang; trim edges and flute. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
