My mother-in-law gave me this recipe book and as I looked through it, I knew I had to make this. It can't be more simple and delicious.
The recipe is called "Freezer Fruit Cobbler" and the book is called, "Simple, Fresh and Healthy" by Linda Hafner. It just takes a few minutes to put together, but it tastes like you spent hours on it.
|Frozen berries....not defrosted!|
|Sprinkled with the flour mixture....|
|Topped with the dough...|
|Into my belly!|
4C frozen fruit (I used blueberries and raspberries)
1/2 C sugar
2 TBL cornstarch
4 oz butter, softened
3/4 C sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 325.
Scatter the fruit in an 8x8 baking dish. Combine sugar and cornstarch and sprinkle over fruit.
To prepare crust, combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the butter and sugar. Stir in egg. Gradually add the flour mixture. The batter will seem quite stiff.
Drop the batter, one spoonful at a time, over the top of the fruit. The batter will settle into the fruit as it bakes.
Transfer the cobbler to the oven and bake for 60 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and cooked through.
