The diet was going great. Down 13.5 pounds. And then the blackberries started to ripen.
We might not blame the blackberries but rather the butter and sugar and flour mixture that tops them. Oh, and possibly the ice cream that tops that.
Easiest Ever Berry Cobbler
About four cups fresh blackberries
About one cup sugar
Juice of one lemon
Three-quarter cup whole wheat flour (white will work fine)
Three-quarter cup lightly packed brown sugar
One stick of butter
Stir the sugar and lemon juice into the berries gently. Pour into your favorite pie plate.
With a pastry blender, two dinner knives or your food processor, cut the very cold butter into the flour and sugar until it's crumbly and the largest pieces are about pea-sized.
Spread that mixture over the berries.
Bake at 350 for about an hour or until the juices are bubbling up through the crust and it's lightly browned.
Cool just enough that the cobbler thickens. Serve with homemade vanilla ice cream.
