    Brown Sugar Mixed Berry Cobbler

     I found this recipe off the Epicurious Website. It is from an issue of Gourmet 2010 by Andrea Albin

    Thought this would a perfect dessert for the Grandchildren
    AND I was right… they loved it
    As it is winter here, I used frozen berries, in fact I love Frozen berries
    especially for baking

    When I was young, I really loved it when my Mother made a hot dessert
    Steamed puddings, Fruit pies, Lemon Delicious Pudding
    Cobbler is not really a New Zealand Tradition, but I'm always trying something new
    After all it is just scones /dumplings on top of cooked fruit! 
    Easy Peasy
    This recipe feeds 6-8, I halved it for the 4 of us. It was enough

            3/4 cup packed brown sugar
            2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
            1 kg of frozen mixed berries
            2 cups all-purpose flour
            2 teaspoons baking powder
            Rounded 1/2 teaspoon salt
            1 1/2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
            3/4 cup whole milk
            1 teaspoon granulated sugar
    plus 1 teaspoon packed dark brown sugar

    Preheat oven to 200C with rack in middle.
    Stir together brown sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl.
    Add berries and toss to coat. 
    Transfer mixture to a shallow 3-quart baking dish and bake until mixture is hot, about 12 minutes        Meanwhile, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
    Add butter and blend with your fingertips or a pastry blender
    until mixture resembles coarse meal with some roughly pea-size butter lumps. 
    Add milk and stir until dough just comes together.
    Remove baking dish from oven and drop mounds of dough onto hot berries.
    Stir together the topping... the brown sugar and the granulated sugar and sprinkle over dough.
    Bake cobbler until topping is golden, 25 to 30 minutes.
    Cool to warm, about 30 minutes.
    Some cream or ice ream
    and an excellent dessert is on the table
