BLACKBERRY COBBLER

 

Sweet Eats
by Rose Dunnington
This is one of those desserts that people go crazy over. They have no idea how easy it is to make. Shhh...why ruin it for them?
This dessert takes about 15 minutes to put together and 35 to 40 minutes to bake.
Makes: 6 to 8 servings


Equipment

• measuring cups and spoons
• 2 mixing bowls
• wooden spoon
• 9 x 13-inch baking dish, greased
• oven mitts

Ingredients
• 3 to 4 pints fresh-picked wild blackberries, washed and picked over (You can use two 12-ounce bags of frozen berries instead.)
• 1 to 2 cups sugar (Use the greater amount for wild berries only.)
• 1/4 cup cornstarch
• pinch of salt
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 cups flour
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1 tablespoon baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup), cut into 1/4-inch slices
• 3/4 cup milk


Directions
1.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Combine the berries, sugar, cornstarch, pinch of salt, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Stir until the cornstarch dissolves. Dump the fruit mixture into the baking dish.

2. Stir the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt together in the second mixing bowl. Work the butter into the flour with your fingers until the texture is crumbly. Add the milk and stir to make shaggy, sticky dough.

3. Drop clumps of dough on top of the fruit in the baking dish. Cobbler got its name because it looks like lumpy, bumpy cobblestone streets - so don't smooth it out. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the juices are bubbling around the edges. Use oven mitts to remove the baking dish from the oven.

4. Let the cobbler cool while you check the mirror. Do you look like you've suffered to make this special treat for your family? Serve the cobbler with ice cream and a sigh.
