My sister, my Dad, me (at the bottom), and my Mom.
My mom makes a really good cobbler and has just the right dish to bake it in, a clear glass casserole dish with a glass lid (probably Pyrex). 360 degrees of goodness visible to the naked eye. Cobbler layers cooked to perfection; berries or peaches, a fruit sauce, topped off with crunchy sweet biscuits. My mom has type 1 Diabetes which means she didn't go crazy with desserts, but she's a good cook, and when she makes, them they're good.
Pioneer Woman's Blackberry Cobbler recipe and it was indeed good, so why was I still looking for a recipe? Good question, but I think I have found the recipe I'm going to stick to. Here are the photos, the recipe is at the bottom.
Indiana Blackberry Cobbler
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
4 cups blackberries (1 only had 2 C so I used blueberries for the remaining 2 C)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1. Combine flour,sugar,baking powder & salt, then cut in 1/4 cup butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
2. In another bowl combine milk and slightly beaten egg. and add all at once to dry ingredients, stirring just to moisten.
3. Combine juice from berries with water to make 1 cup liquid.
4. In a medium saucepan, combine berry juice,cornstarch and sugar; cook till thickened then add berries and butter and cook till hot.
5. Pour filling into a buttered 8" square baking dish and immediately spoon on biscuit topper in 6 mounds. (I sprinkled the tops of the biscuits with sugar.)
6. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
