1 stick unsalted butter, cut into cubes, 4 oz
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 T. baking powder
1 t. pure vanilla extract
1/2 t. salt
1/4 cup boiling water

Using a hand or stand mixer, mix together the butter and both sugars on low speed until creamy. In another bowl, mix together flour and baking powder. Add vanilla extract, salt, water land flour mixture to mixer, continuing to mix on low speed. Remove ball of dough from mixer, cover in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 20 minutes before using. To use the doughy cobbler dough in a recipe, scoop out chunks with large spoon and use according to instructions. This cobbler works well with hard fruit that needs to be “marinated” in sugar before baking.
