Fruits of the Forest Cobbler

We are back from vacation!  We had fun picking berries, fishing and crabbing.  The fishing wasn't very good, we just got one or two.  The berry-picking was wonderful and it was a spectacular year for crabbing.


We picked both blackberries and blueberries.



Before we left for vacation my youngest daughter shared a recipe for cobbler with me that she said was better than the "old stand-by".  She was right.  We took berries with us to Seattle to visit our oldest daughter.  We made the cobbler for a BBQ that they were having.  The cobbler was absolutely delicious.  I used a combination of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.  (The raspberries came from the Farmer's Market in Southwest Seattle.)


Fruits of the Forest Cobbler

Preheat Oven to 375°
Grease 8 X 8 baking dish with butter/margarine.

Crust
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1-2 Tbsp milk (enough to moisten)

Filling
2 Tbsp flour
3/4 cup sugar
5 cups fruit
1 cube unsalted butter, melted
Cinnamon
Raw sugar

Mix the ingredients for the crust.  Add 2-3 tablespoons of milk to moisten.

Melt the butter in a measuring cup.  Mix the berries, flour and sugar together.  Add about 2/3 cup to the filling.

Pour the berry filling into the baking dish.  Put the crust in dollops over the top of the berries and smooth out.  Pour the remaining butter over the top of the crust.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and raw sugar.

Bake for 45 minutes.

PRINTABLE RECIPE


I must repeat myself....the cobbler was wonderful.  I have used the same recipe with peaches and it was equally as good.
