GF Blackberry Cobbler
While I am not Gluten Free myself, my grandfather is, as well as several of our friends, so I find myself baking more GF recipes than non. I threw this GF Blackberry Cobbler together on a Saturday morning before an event we had at our house. It's a quick, easy dessert that's sure to please even your non-gf friends.
Ingredients List: For filling 6 Cups Blackberries (rinsed, fresh or frozen work) 1/2 Cup Sugar 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
For the Cobbler Topping 1 Cup GF Flour 2 Tablespoons Sugar 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder 3 Tablespoons Shortening 1 Large Egg 4 Tablespoons Milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
For the filling in a medium bowl, whisk together sugar and cornstarch.
Add blackberries and toss to coat until evenly distributed.
Spread the berries into the baking dish.
For the cobbler topping, in a separate bowl, mix together flour, sugar, brown sugar and baking powder.
Cut in shortening until it is crumbly. I found it easier to use a fork for this small amount of ingredients.
Add egg and milk to crumbly flour mixture, stir till just combined.
Using a cookie scoop, drop scoops of dough onto filling. I managed 12 scoops.
Bake 25-28 minutes until cobbler is brown and cooked through.
Remove from oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
Note: At first glance, I thought this cobbler might need more of the bread portion, but once eaten, I discovered that it's the perfect ratio of bread to fruit.
Top it off with a little Vanilla Ice Cream and you've got a GREAT summertime dessert, perfect for people with food restrictions.
