Berry Cobbler

This is another delectable treat that I served at the WAR party earlier this week. It's actually a recipe that I got from my friend Andrea. The recipe is made even better based on the fact that it's made with black raspberries picked fresh from our own woods. However, any berry will work (fresh or frozen), or combination of berries. Blackberries and blueberries together is really nice.

1/2 c Sugar
1 T Corn starch
4 c Berries
1 t Lemon juice
3 T Shortening (or coconut oil)
1 c Flour
1 T Sugar
1 1/2 t Baking Powder
1/2 t Salt
1/2 c Milk

1. Bring 1/2 c Sugar, corn starch, berries and lemon juice to a boil. Stirring and let boil for 1 minute to thicken.
2. Meanwhile, cut in shortening and flour with a pastry blender or fork.
3. To flour mixture, add sugar, baking powder and salt.
4. Stir milk into flour mixture and stir until just combined.
5. Pour berry mixture into a 8 X 8 or 9 X 9 pan.
6. Drop spoonfuls of pastry mixture onto the berries and bake in a 400 degree oven for 25-30 minutes until cobbler is lightly/golden brown.
7. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.

I like adding 1 t of cinnamon to the berry mixture.
If you like, a dash of nutmeg would work as well.

TOTAL COSTS: $1.20 - $4.00
Berries - free from woods or $2.80 (frozen @ Meijer sale)
Sugar - $.20
Flour - $.30
Milk - $.20
Lemon - $.50
