Blackberry Cobbler Recipes for Berry Season

Blackberry Cobbler

Soon berries will ripen and early summer will be the time to pull out blackberry cobbler recipes and other berry dishes.  In the meantime, try this old-fashioned blackberry cobbler recipe from scratch:

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 cup cold water

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

4 cups blackberries, picked over, rinsed & drained

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons butter, cold, cut in small pieces

1/4 cup boiling water

Directions:

In a large bowl, stir together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water until cornstarch is completely dissolved. Add 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, and blackberries; combine gently. Transfer to a cast iron skillet, about 8-inch. In a bowl, combine the flour, remaining sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1/4 cup boiling water and stir the mixture just until it a soft dough is formed. Bring the blackberry mixture to a boil, stirring. Drop spoonfuls of the dough carefully onto the boiling mixture, and bake the cobbler on a baking sheet (line with foil to avoid a mess) in the middle of a preheated 400° oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the topping is golden. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

For easy blackberry cobbler, cheat a little with a store bought package of blackberry muffin mix combined with ¾ cup milk.  Spoon into the bottom of a greased pan.  Use the same technique for preparing the blackberries as above – only use a package of frozen blackberries!
