Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberry Cobbler
1 cup butter, divided
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
 1 1/2 cup self-rising flour (OR 1 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 tsp salt and 2 1/4 tsp baking powder)
1/3 cup milk, room temperature
2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp sugar

In baking dish, melt 1/2 cup butter; set aside.

In saucepan, heat sugar & water until sugar melts; set aside.

Place flour (and salt/baking powder if needed) in a mixing bowl.  Cut remaining butter until fine crumbs form.  Add milk, stirring with a fork until dough leaves side of bowl.  Turn out onto a flowered surface; knead 3-4 times.  Roll out in an 11x9 pan.

Spread berries over dough; sprinkle with cinnamon (I forgot to do this until later, but it still tasted fine).

Roll up, jell-roll style.

Cut into 1/4 inch slices. 

Carefully lay slices in baking dish over the butter (this is where I obviously put the cinnamon on).

Pour sugar syrup around the slices.  It will be absorbed.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.  Sprinkle the last of the sugar on top and bake for 15 more minutes.

Serve warm or cold!

MY REVIEW:   This was delicious!!!  And you probably didn't even notice the small handful of blueberries mixed in there - I didn't quite have 2 cups of blackberries.  But it worked!  I'd say the only downside to this dish is having to wait an hour to eat it!
