After a weeks hiatus, Flashback Friday has returned! This week I flashback to a recipe and a memory.....my MawMaw Nezat's Blackberry pie. My family was here last week and the blackberries were abundant, so I thought it was a perfect time to bake a pie with my Mom...one that her Mom made very well. My grandmother was a great cook, baker and candy maker and she made many things I loved, but for some reason blackberry pie stands out as a favorite. Her recipe is no different than thousands of others you might find on the internet, but there's a reason an old standby recipe like this is still around! There's no reason to mess with perfection! Can I also add that I LOVED baking this with my Momma :-)

1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
