   This cobbler is the real dealAfter moving to the South and discovering a wonderful talent for baking, one of our favorite Kitchenworkers introduced us to this amazing cast iron berry cobbler. 

   This is not a boxed dessert from aisle 3 that requires a cup of oil and an egg. This the dessert that your grandmother would have pulled from the oven on a crisp fall afternoon and served with homemade ice cream. Trust us, when you taste this sweet bubbly creation with it's golden brown biscuit topping, you'll be a believer.

4 T   butter, divided
8 cups

  berries, rinsed and drained  

(We love a mix of blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries!)

1 cup   sugar, divided
1/4 cup   brown sugar
3 T   cornstarch
2 cups
  biscuit flour
1/2 t   salt
2T   vegetable shortening
3/4 cup

  heavy cream 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Melt 1 T butter in a 10" cast iron skillet.

In another bowl, combine fruit, 3/4 cup sugar, brown sugar, and cornstarch. Mix and pour into skillet.

Sift flour, the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt into bowl. Cut butter and shortening into mixture. Add cream and mix until just combined.

Knead on a floured surface until dough comes together. Roll out dough to 3/4" thickness. Cut biscuits and place on top of fruit. Sprinkle biscuits with sugar (and maybe a little cinnamon!)

Bake 45-55 minutes until biscuits are cooked through and golden brown.
