Berry Good Cobbler

It’s berry season in Florida. I am not a big pie lover but I do love cobblers. It’s the crust thing. This cobbler packs a big punch with lots of berry taste and a nice sweet crunchy top. So yummy warm with a big scoop of ice cream. I used 3 different types of berries in this recipe but one kind, two, three or more different kinds of berries would work. You decide what berry flavor combinations you want.

Ingredients:
8 cups of berries (I used a combination of strawberries, blueberries,and blackberries)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup plus 1/4 cup sugar, divided
3 heaping Tablespoons of corn starch
1 1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
6 Tablespoons of butter, chilled and cut into pieces
3/4 cup plus 3 Tablespoons of heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 9 pan with nonstick spray. In a separate bowl, place berries and pour the lemon juice on top of them. Combine sugar and cornstarch, add to berries and stir gently. Place berries in the 9 x 9 pan. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Add butter cutting in with pastry blender or two knives. Continue to cut butter in flour mixture until it resembles fine crumbs. Add heavy whipping cream and combine to form a dough.
