Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cold butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • FILLING:
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, drained, divided
  • Whipped cream

Directions

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in egg until dough forms a ball. Press onto the bottom and 2 in. up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. springform pan.
For filling, in a bowl, beat the egg yolks, sour cream, sugar and vanilla just until combined. Sprinkle 2 cups blackberries over crust. Carefully pour sour cream mixture over berries. Bake at 325° for 1-1/2 hours or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack (center will fall). Remove sides of pan. Top with whipped cream and remaining blackberries. This dessert is best eaten the same day it's prepared. Refrigerate any leftovers. Yield: 12-14 servings.
Editor's Note: Even a tight-fitting springform pan may leak. To prevent drips, place the pan on a shallow baking pan in the oven.

"This is an excellent desert, but I have to say that it's far better with strawberries than blackberries. I haven't made it yet without getting a multitude of compliments . This recipes deserves far more attention than it's getting."

"I took this to work today and one of the lawyers asked for the recipe. I said, "for your wife?" He said, no, he was going to make it. Shame on me for making the assumption men don't bake. All my coworkers love it."
