A Cobbler Built For Two

Dear Henry,

The other day Fish found wild blackberries and everyone suggested we make a cobbler with them.

Of course, we had eaten them long before I could make anything with them but I caught the cobbler bug from all of the suggestions.

The problem with baking though is it is just Fish and me, most of the time and the only recipe I have for cobbler makes a large dish for ten to twelve.

I played around with my recipe and I think I have got it - a fruit cobbler for two.



Fruit Cobbler for two

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix together for the filling:
2 cups berries/cherries (I used a mix of both)
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp flour
(you may want to add a teaspoon of lemon juice if you are using really sweet berries)

Add berries to a small, buttered, casserole dish (or small pyrex bowl)

Then mix together for the crust:
1/3 cup flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tea baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 tbsp melted butter
1 egg

Drop the crust mixture over the berries and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
