There’s still time to post to Merry Merry Munchies before the giveaway ends Thursday.
I’m posting this to several of my favorite blogs including Blue Monday with Smiling Sally. I haven’t posted there in awhile, but I do enjoy seeing what others have to say. I think the blueberries I used in this cobbler will qualify me to be a part of her Blue Monday, don’t you?
When I watched Perfect Daughter make this recently, I thought she was making a fruit clafouti or free-form tart at first. Then she began rolling the dough and berries up like a cinnamon roll! The Perfect Babies were assisting as Sous Chefs so the roll was less than perfect, but they were having a perfectly grand time. It didn’t matter; the cobbler was delicious. Perfection was achieved through the taste.
I recently made it myself to take to Merry Merry Munchies at school. It was gobbled up so fast that I didn’t have to worry about taking leftovers home.
I used blueberries, but the recipe that PD got from her MIL Barbara, said that any berry could be used. I’d like to know if you give it a try using something other than blueberries; let me know what you think.
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cut Crisco into flour, baking powder and salt until it is the consistency of small peas.
Add milk and stir until it sticks together.
Roll out into a thin (1/4-inch thick) rectangle,
Spread 2 cups of fruit over the dough and roll like a jelly roll. Cut into 1/2-inch slices.
Melt 8 Tablespoons of butter in a rectangular baking dish. Lay rolls on melted butter in the baking dish.
(I just “finger-perfected” mine. I don’t think that maintaining the rolls is an issue.)
Mix 2 cups sugar, 2 cups water and the juice of 1 lemon and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Pour half of the sugar syrup over the rolls and bake.
Place in a 350 degree oven and bake 1 hour until the rolls are browned. About half way through the baking time, pour the remainder of the sugar syrup over the rolls.
This is good with berries or any other fruit.
