Heritage Recipe

"Any" Berry Cobbler

My grandparents ran a dairy in Elkins, West Virginia from 1900 until 1940. By my grandmother's standards, I would not be considered a good cook because I have to follow a recipe. She fed a family of 12, plus farm hands, 3 meals a day. Here's one of her recipes:

Ingredients
5 cups fresh berries (almost any kind of berry works except elderberries)
3/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons butter
Pastry
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
2 Tablespoons water
1 Tablespoon milk
1 Tablespoon sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place berries in bottom of 9-inch square baking dish. Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt and sprinkle over berries. Dot with butter; set aside.

Pastry: Combine flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening until coarse dough forms. Sprinkle with water. Stir until mixture forms a ball. Roll out on lightly floured surface.

Place pastry over dish of berries, sealing the edges. Cut slits on top. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 30 minutes until golden brown.
