1 8 oz. carton dairy sour cream
3 Tbsp. flour

4 cups FRESH blackberries, raspberries or blueberries (or combination)
1/4 c. fine dry breadcrumbs
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. butter or margarine melted

cool slightly. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together the 3/4 to 1 cup sugar, the sour cream, flour and salt until combined. Set aside.
Place the blackberries in the prebaked
pastry shell. Spread the sour cream mixture evenly over the berries.
In a small bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons sugar and
butter or margarine. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over on top of the sour cream mixture.
Cover the edge of the pie with foil and bake in the 375 degree overn for 25 minutes. Remove the foil.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or until the top of the pie is golden and the berry mixture bubbles slightly.
Note: Must use fresh blackberries, frozen will not work well because they release too much juice as they thaw. However, you can use other fresh berries like blueberries or raspberries, even some strawberries, a combination is wonderful!
