Cooking to Live or Living to Cook: Dew-Berry Cobbler

Rodney Dupuy Cajun Livin' N Cookin

It's berry season now, and time to put some in the freezer. My favorite berries are strawberry, blackberry and dew-berry. I picked a mess of dew-berries last week. Dew-berries are larger than blackberries and grow lower to the ground. I found an old recipe in my cookbook that was written on a piece of notebook paper. I’m not sure where the recipe comes from but it sure turned out good.

1 egg

¼ cup sugar

1/3 cup milk

3 tbls shortening

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Beat egg until well mixed in a small mixing bowl.  Add ¼ cup sugar, milk, and shortening to egg; mix well.  Sift flour, baking powder and salt; add to milk mixture, mixing well.  Place dew-berries in the bottom of a 14x10 inch pan; top with once cup sugar and cinnamon.  Cover with batter; bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.  Serve warm or cold.
