I’m doing a bit of a fridge clear-out and I want to do something spectacular with my extra fruit. 
You’ll see later this week why the fridge clear out is necessary.  It’s not pretty.
I wasn’t really in the mood for a crisp or a pie so finding a recipe of my Gran’s for cobbler is a total gift from the big guy.
A cobbler is like a fruit, pot pie.  The fruit stews on the bottom and the biscuit topping simultaneously steams on the bottom and gets a satisfying, crunchy top. 
A layer of sugar that caramelizes just a little bit but adds another dimension to the dish. 
Enough talking-let’s get into the instructions so that this dish can get on your table as soon as possible.
First, butter your casserole.
Fill with an assortment of berries.  My dish holds about 5 cups of berries.
Sprinkle with:  3/4 cup of flour, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.
In a bowl mix; 1 1/4 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.  Add 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk and 6 T. melted butter. 
Just mix together enough to JUST combine-if you beat this dish it’ll be tough and desserts are not meant to be part of a biker gang. 
Spread over the top of your fruit and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for approx. 40 minutes at 350 or until a knife comes out clean when inserted into the cobbler top.  Not that it needs it but this dish is amazing with vanilla icecream too.
