Berry Cobbler 

 Adapted from Bon Appetit, Y'all by Virginia Willis
Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3 cups Winter Sun Farms frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries or raspberries) 
  • 1 cup sugar, more for sprinkling
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 t vanilla extract 

Please note: 1 package WSF blueberries = 2 cups, 1 package WSF blackberries= 2 cups, 1 package WSF raspberries = 1 cup. 
We like blueberries and blackberries together, but mix and match anyway you like. You can't go wrong!

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Melt butter in large cast iron skillet in oven 5-7 minutes.  Meanwhile, heat frozen berries in a saucepan. If berries are tart, sprinkle with sugar. In a large bowl whisk flour, baking powder and salt.  Add 1 cup sugar, milk and vanilla; mix until combined. Remove skillet from oven and add melted butter to flour mixture; stir to combine. Pour mixture in skillet and pour berries in center.  Transfer skillet to oven and bake until top is golden brown and a cake tester inserted into batter comes out clean, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature with ice cream, whipped cream, or creme fraiche.
