Not only is this Tasty Tuesday but it's a HAPPY Tuesday as well! Last week I won a signed copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks from a sweet blog titled "Luv StrawberryCake" Sheila from there LOVES The Pioneer Woman so much, after buying her book, she began a quest to make EVERY recipe in that book, she just finished up last week, and to celebrate this fun task, she gave away 2 signed copies and I won one! I'm so excited and even more so when it arrived yesterday, as this has been on my want list since it came out and now I own a signed copy! So, to celebrate my good fortune, I'd like to share a recipe from this book that will be one of the first ones I try. Now, if you remember, you know I posted another of Ree's recipes here not too long ago. Her Chicken Speghetti is now one of our favorites so I know the rest of her recipes sure will be!
Cobbler season will be before we know it and I thought a good, honest recipe for this summer dessert is a must, so be sure to print this one out and don't tuck it away too far, fresh fruits will be available soon!
Patsy's Blackberry Cobbler
1/4 pound (1 stick) butter, melted
1 1/4 c. plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
1 c. self rising flour
1 c. milk
2 c. fresh or frozen blackberries (or blueberries, peaches, so on)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 3 qt. baking dish with butter. Place the stick of butter in a microwave bowl and heat for 30-45 min. till melted. In a med. bowl, whisk 1 c. of the sugar with the flour and milk. Whisk in melted butter. Rinse berries and pat dry. Pour batter into the baking dish. Sprinkle the berries evenly over the batter. Sprinkle 1/4 c. sugar over the blackberries. Bake for 1 hour or till golden brown and bubbly. When 10 min. of the baking time remains, sprinkle the remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar over the top. Serve warm.
This is a wonderful book, not just a cookbook but a book of great talents, not only with food but photography as well. I've been following The Pioneer Woman for a few years now and she never disappoints, I've learned to cook and bake better and she's taught me how to capture the best of my shots! Thanks again Shelia for my new cookbook, I may have won it, but Ree has won me over, all over again! Enjoy!
