Now...time for a little 'Indulgence'!
 
Buttermilk-Crusted Blackberry Cobbler
Filling:
1 1/2 lbs blackberries
(I used frozen and thawed them under cool water)
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 1/2 TBSP all-purpose flour
1 1/3 TBSP vanilla extract
 
In a medium bowl, combine blackberries, sugar, flour and vanilla.
Pour into a greased 8 x 12 x 2 inch pan.
(I use 8 x 11.5 glass baking dish)

Crust:
1 TBSP plus 2 1/2 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 TBSP melted butter

Preheat oven to 350*.

In a large bowl, stir together 1 TBSP sugar, baking powder, salt, shortening, buttermilk, and 3/4 cup flour to form a sticky dough.
Spread remaining flour (1/4 plus 1/3 cup) on a work surface, and knead dough until most of the flour is incorporated and dough is manageable.
Roll dough to about 1/4 inch thickness, and cut with a knife into large pieces.
Cover blackberry filling with dough, overlapping pieces. 
Drizzle melted butter over dough, and sprinkle with remaining 2 1/2 tsp sugar.
Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, about 50 minutes. 
Serves 8 -10


Hot and bubbly...straight out of the oven!
Yes...I added a little extra sugar.... shame, shame...but YUM!


Just look at all that blackberry goodness!
