Cara's Crowned Blackberry Cobbler
- 3 tablespoons Sugar
- 3 tablespoons Flour
- 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
- 1 shot Crown Royal (blended whisky)
- 16oz bag frozen Blackberries
- 1 stick Butter
- 1 cup Flour
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (raw oatmeal)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and prep an 8x8 Pyrex baking dish with either smeared butter or non-stick spray. Mix filling ingredients and pour into baking dish. In a separate bowl, mix pastry ingredients until you get a crumbly strudel texture. Be sure to use cold butter for the pastry, that way it stays crumbly and not turn into dough. Sprinkle pastry crumble on top of berry filling. Bake for 35 minutes until the crust turns lightly golden brown. Allow to cool halfway before serving.
Personally speaking, I'm really happy to have this recipe finished. It took me almost a year or tweaking to get this recipe just the way I wanted it. It really is true about the simple recipes making the most impact. With fewer ingredients, it's important to get the balance just right. Don't let that discourage you from creating your own recipes, always try to challenge yourself!
Enjoy the flavors of the south, with a little extra spike!
