Berry Cobbler

Ya'll can just start calling me by my new name...."Cobbler Queen"!  I made some for a friend at work for his birthday yesterday and I have to say - these were GOOOOOOOD!  Just a few ingredients and a whole lot of happiness will walk right out of your oven!  Use fresh berries or frozen, all one berry or mix as you please.  Just make sure that they are all similar size so they cook evenly.  This recipe will make a large cobbler (9 x13 baking dish) or two smaller dishes.

2 cups baking mix (Bisquick or Jiffy Mix)
1 1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 brown sugar
2 t cinnamon sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup milk
2 cups berries (any kind or mix of berries)

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup baking mix
1/2 stick butter

Rinse your berries and let them drain completely dry (wet berries will give you a soggy cobbler).  Just lay them out on paper towels and let them sit while you prepare the baking mix.

Mix your filling ingredients together before you add your berries.  The mixture will be thick but still stir well.  Add the berries, gently fold them into the filling.  Add to a well sprayed backing dish.  Bake at 350* for 15 minutes.

Mix topping ingredients in a bowl.  Add the butter by slicing it into small pats and cut in with a fork until you have a crumbly mixture.  Add to the to of the cobbler and return it to the oven for another 45 minutes or until the center is set and the top is golden.

Great served warm and French vanilla ice cream doesn't hurt either! Yummmmm
