I don't even remember where I got this recipe, I've had it so long. Very easy and quick to make, no need to roll out a pie crust. Good beginners pie for children or any one who does not want a lot of work in order to have pie.

We really enjoyed this a lot and I will definitely make it again. It is extremely simple and fast to assemble. The results are like a cross between a pie and a cobbler. I used frozen blackberries and it worked fine. Note that when I took it out from the oven, there was a small pool of melted butter on the top, which I spooned off. When I make this again, I will use less butter. This is a keeper!
