Tasty Thursday

More summer yummy. I love summer because it (usually) means I can leave the house wearing a single layer of clothing and all the yummy veggies and fruits. Since today is Lammas, I thought I feature a recipe highlighting the one of these treasures. At Lammas, blackberries are ripe and ready for picking. Go out and gather a bucketful (or buy 3 cups from your local farmer’s market) and make a delicious blackberry cobbler for your summer celebrations!

Blackberry Cobbler
• 1 C sugar
• 1/3 C stick butter, softened
• 2 C flour
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 1 C milk
• 1 tsp salt
• 3 C fresh blackberries
• 2 Tbs sugar
• 1/2 tsp cinnamon
• 2 C boiling water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add in the flour, baking powder, milk and salt. Blend until creamy, and spread into a greased 12 x 8″ baking pan.
Pour blackberries over batter, and sprinkle with remaining sugar and cinnamon. Pour boiling water over the top, and then bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or with fresh cream.
I’d love to hear of some your favorite summer celebration recipes.
