2 Crust Blackberry Cobbler

I've combined and changed a few different recipes, and have landed upon this one! I had to make it a few times to figure it out, and get it right! My husband and kids didnt seem to mind trying my "experiments"! 

For the Crust; you'll need

1 cup unsalted butter, chilled

3 cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons white sugar

1/3 cup ice water

For the fruit; you'll need

2 bags any frozen fruit; thawed

Combine flour and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer. Cut butter into tablespoon pieces; add it to the flour and butter. You may need to use a fork to cut the butter and mix it up. 

I finally get to use this baby, for the first time! yay!

With the mixer on low speed , or while stirring the mixture with a fork, pour in the cold water. When the dough starts to clump, and before it turns into a ball, stop stirring.

Lightly knead dough in the bowl, until it forms a ball. Chill for about 30 minutes before rolling. If the dough seems to sticky, just stir in some flour. 

 Meanwhile, put THAWED fruit in a bowl (I bought 2 bags of frozen blackberries),and add sugar and stir. 


Divide dough in half, and roll out one ball to the size and shape of the pie pan. Fill pan

 Sprinkle a little sugar on crust, then put some of the fruit in crust

 Dot the fruit with some butter.

Cut a few strips from remaining dough, and place over the fruit. (just a few). Then cover with fruit, and dot with butter again. Then top with a solid crust or just more strips; sprinkle with sugar 

 Bake at about 350 degrees for 60-65 min, or until crust is brown and fruit is cooked.
