Filling :
1 1/2 pounds blackberries
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/3 tablespoons vanilla extract

Crust :
1 tablespoon plus 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 tablespoon melted butter


For Filling:
In a medium bowl, combine blackberries, sugar, flour, and vanilla. Pour into greased 8x12x2-inch pan.

For Crust:
Preheat oven to 350°.

In a large bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, salt, shortening, buttermilk, and 3/4 cup flour to form a sticky dough. Spread remaining flour on a work surface, and knead dough until most of the flour is incorporated and dough is manageable. Roll dough to about 1/4-inch thickness, and cut with a knife into large pieces. Cover blackberry filling with dough, overlapping pieces. Drizzle melted butter over dough, and sprinkle with remaining 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar.

Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, about 50 minutes.
