Foraged Berry Cobbler

This cobbler was shockingly easy to make, though it did take me a lot longer than the 10 minutes the recipe said it would take.

First, the actual berry ingredients are combined.  This included berries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice.  It called for “fresh foraged berries,” so I combined several different types – strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.

And then it goes into the oven until the top is brown and the berries are bubbling.

It smelled so good when it came out of the oven, and the 20 minutes wait for it to cool seemed like it took forever.

DELICIOUS!!!  I will definitely be making this one again.  I’d actually use more blackberries next time, though, and fewer strawberries.  Both my husband and I thought the blackberries tasted the best, and the strawberries seemed to get extra mushy.

We have a winner!  The dough was unlike any cobbler topping I’d made before, but it turned our really well and worked perfectly with the berries.

Difficulty: Easy

Just mix together berry ingredients, then the dough ingredients, and finally pinch dough over top of the berries before cooking.  Very simple.

Cost: Cheap to Average

You will need to purchase berries (unless you can actually go and pick your own!) and probably buttermilk as well, but most other ingredients will already be in your cupboard or fridge: sugar, cornstarch, flour, butter, etc.

Suggestion:

You can adjust how much of each berry type you’d like to include based on your preference.  Personally we thought the blackberries tasted the best, so next time I’d use a lot more of them and less of the other berries.  Or make it completely blackberries only!

And if you don’t like things to be too sweet, you can reduce the amount of extra sugar added to the berry mixture.
