Blueberry Blackberry Cobbler

I just realized I never posted my cobbler recipe that I promised Mr. Macabre I would. I can't remember where I got this recipe, but it's pretty tasty and easy to make. You can make it with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or even a combination of berries like I did here with this version of the recipe.

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, thawed
3/4 cup sugar, divided
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons cold butter
3/4 cup buttermilk

In a large bowl, combine the berries, 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch,
lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Transfer to a 2-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, lemon peel, baking powder, salt,
baking soda and remaining sugar; cut in butter until mixture
resembles coarse crumbs.

Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto blueberry mixture.

Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

Pair with vanilla ice cream.

Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.

Looks really good. I will try that one when I'm finished with the blueberry coffee cake I made saturday (so delicious but very very unhealthy).

Have a good day!
