Blackberry Cobbler
When I was growing up, Mom only made one kind of cobbler. I loved it because it was "magical". You melted the butter in the pan, poured in a batter and then topped it with fruit. While it baked, the batter rose above the fruit like magic! After Mom died, I went through most of her recipes and never found this one. Fifteen years later, I was looking through a cookbook from the library and came across this recipe. This is it! I've made peach and blackberry cobblers using this recipe.

1 stick butter
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2-3 cups fruit
1 cup sugar

Heat oven to 350. Place butter in 4-quart casserole or 8x8 baking dish and place in oven until melted. Mix together milk, sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Pour batter over butter. Do not stir. Mix fruit and sugar together and pour on top of batter. Do not stir.

Bake for 1 hour, or until crust is nicely browned.

If you prefer a thicker crust, use the casserole dish. For a slightly thinner crust, use the 8 x 8 baking dish. For an even thinner crust, try a 9x13 baking dish.
