in one of my posts recently, i talked about our blackberry picking.
i also said i'm not much of a baker.
i mentioned that we use the blackberries in drinks and smoothies...and freeze most of them.
this morning we rode the 4-wheeler across the road...to the field...
|Woodrose vine/Morning Glory, in the field|
across the street
to collect MORE wild blackberries.
when we got back home...my mother-in-law stopped by
and asked if i was going to bake a pie.
"nah. i'm not a very good baker.
besides, i don't even have a pie pan."
she reminded me that she gave me a stoneware pie pan a while back.
(oh yeah. damn.)
after observing sam's drooling at the thought of blackberry pie...
i looked online for a recipe.
eileen, my mother-in-law...said to look for a Cobbler recipe...that they're easier to make.
that sounded good. easier. less kitchen time. that's for me.
i printed the recipe, gathered the ingredients:
Jiffy-mix (1 cup), sugar (½ cup), milk (½ cup), oil (2 tsp), water ( ¾ cup)
AND don't forget the blackberries (which i doubled, 4 cups)
mixed it all up together...
poured it into the pre-greased pie pan...
slid it into the pre-heated 375° (F) oven...
and 45 minutes later...
my first (deep dish) Blackberry Cobbler!
dig in. add a scoop of ice cream.
it was easy. maybe i can bake after all.
well...honestly, it's not that i CAN'T bake...
it's just that there are so many other things i'd rather be doing...
(other than chopping, measuring, mixing, baking)
like, wandering the woods
and taking pictures of lizards, mushrooms, bugs, flowers...
(anyway, it was the perfect snack since i'm still stuck on SOFTER foods
'til i get my permanent crown monday afternoon.)
be cool & stay safe.
