I like to make this cobbler with individual little ramekins when company's coming over. I prepare everything in advance, including the crumble that goes on top, then put them aside (someplace cool!) until we sit down to eat. Then I pop them in the oven for a half hour. By the time we're ready to have dessert, the cobblers are warm and golden brown (and, my girls say, begging for a bit of vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt on top!). I use a bag of frozen mixed berries, but you can adapt this to any berry-ation you like!
Mixed Berry Cobbler
2 tablespoons whole-grain pastry flour
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon cold unsalted butter
1 package (12 ounces) frozen mixed berries
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Preheat the over to 375°F. Place six 4-ounce ramekins or custard cups in a baking pan.
Whisk the flour and brown sugar in a small bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces, add to the bowl, and rub with your fingers until the mixture is crumbly.
In a medium bowl, combine the berries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Toss to mix. Spoon a half cup of the berry mixture into each ramekin. Sprinkle each with a half tablespoon of the crumbly dough.
Bake until the topping is golden and the berries are bubbly, about 30 minutes.
