Old fashioned Blackberry cobbler

The church I have attended since I was a little girl has many women parishioners who all have their own cobbler recipes. But everyone agrees that this recipe from a wonderful older lady is the best. Unlike most cobblers, this has a crispy topping and a fluffy, fruity inside. Her original recipe called for blueberries but I wanted to make it with my favorite fruit. I made it this past Sunday , for our coffee hour, and it didn't last more than 10 minutes! The picture I took doesn't have the garnishes on it because I didn't have time, it went THAT fast!

Ingredients

4-5 c
fresh or frozen blackberries
1 c
softened butter
1-1/2 c
sugar
2 tsp
vanilla
1 c
milk
2 Tbsp
lemon juice
2 c
sifted flour
1/4 tsp
salt
2 tsp
baking powder
1 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
cornstarch
3/4 c
boiling water
whipped cream and lemon peel curls for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 375. Lightly spray a 9" x 13" baking pan w/ cooking spray. In a large bowl, cream the butter, 1-1/2 cups sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, milk and salt until well blended.
2
Stir in flour until just blended. Spoon blackberries into bottom of pan. Pour or spoon batter over berries. With a rubber spatula gently spread batter to cover berries.
3
In another bowl whisk together remaining sugar and the cornstarch. Sprinkle evenly over top of batter. Pour boiling water over cornstarch mix, evenly. Gently stir it up a bit. Bake for 40 minutes or until top is crispy looking, ( don't worry, the inside will be nice and soft.) I make my own whipped cream for this, which I top the cobbler slices with along w/ a sprinkling of lemon peel curls for garnish.
