Recipe by Sherrybeth
From a cousin who's grandkids call her Beebee. She makes this for church functions a lot and it goes quickly!! It is easy and quick. ***I have modified the recipe as two people had trouble with their pie setting in the middle. I have added cornstarch and had no problems with the pie firming up***

- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup blackberry jam
