Oh so good blackberry cobbler

After a hard two hours of picking blackberries with a good friend we decided to make a cobbler. I could not remember a time when I had ever made a cobbler. I enjoy eating it from time to time but never made one myself. We researched the basics then came up with this receipe.

Blackberry Cobbler
   5  C Blackberries          1/2 C Boiling water
   2  C Flour                                  2 T Cornstarch

   2  C Sugar                   1/4 C Cold water

   2  t Baking powder          1 T Lemon juice

   1  t Salt 
 12  T Cold butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together the flour, 1 of cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter until crubbly. Slowly add in 1/2 cup boiling water until topping comes together evenly.

In a large pan dissolve the cornstarch in cold water. Mix in remaining 1 cup of sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a soft boil and add berries. Making sure berries get evenly coated.

Pour berries into a 9X13 glass baking dish. The drop spoonfulls of the topping on the berries.You can also sprinkle some more sugar on top if you would like.

Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes until dough is golden brown. Let cool a little then enjoy!
