Recipe by Lizzymommy

Three delicious berries flavor this saucy biscuit-based cobbler. Nothing could be easier or more homey. You can use all blackberries with terrific results, but with berries at their best (or readily available from your grocer's freezer!) I suggest any happy mix of your favorites to total 3 cups. However, be sure to use a few blueberries, which are high in pectin and help the cobbler set up.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Stir together cornstarch and cold water in a large bowl until cornstarch is completely dissolved. Add 1 to 1 1/4 cups sugar, depending on sweetness of berries, the lemon juice and berries, and combine gently but thoroughly. Transfer berry mixture to a well-seasoned 10-inch cast-iron skillet and set aside.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and remaining 3/4 cup sugar in a food processor and pulse to blend. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Transfer to a medium bowl. (alternatively, mix biscuit ingredients in a medium bowl with a pastry fork.) Add boiling water and stir just until a dough forms.
  4. Bring berry mixture to a boil on top of stove, stirring. Carefully drop 8 large spoonfuls of dough onto fruit. Set skillet on foil-lined baking sheet and bake until topping is golden, 30-35 minutes. Cool slightly on a rack and ser ve warm, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
  5. - If you have no cast-iron skillet, substitute an oven-proof skillet, or simply pour hot fruit into a (wide, rather than deep) greased 6-cup casserole dish.
