I cannot tell you how delicious this cobbler was! It was the perfect ending to a beautiful Sunday meal. For this cobbler I used Blackberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries and Pitted Sour Cherries. The combination turned out fabulous.
8 Cups Fresh or Frozen Mixed Berries (Blackberries, Blueberries, Raspberries & Strawberries)
2 Pounds Pitted Sour Cherries
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons Finely Ground Instant Tapioca
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/4 Cup Orange Juice
1 Cup Unbleached Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
8 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
1 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Preheat your oven to 350° F. Grind the tapioca in a coffee grinder and set aside. The tapioca will thicken the juices so that the cobbler isn’t thin.
For the filling: In a large size bowl toss together the berries, cherries, 3/4 cup of sugar, ground tapioca, 1/2 teaspoon salt and orange juice. Transfer to a large glass baking dish (at least 2 1/2 quarts).
For the crust: Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Set aside. Cream together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a large size bowl. Slowly beat in the flour mixture until a moist dough forms. Spoon the dough over the filling.
Bake the cobbler for 1 1/4 hours until the juices are thick and bubbly and the topping is golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Serve with vanilla ice cream. Serves 12
