Blackberry Cobbler

I found this recipe in a book called Three Hundred Years of Carolina Cooking, put out about 40 years ago by a Junior League in South Carolina.  It is the perfect cobbler.  I have tried others but this is the perfection that the others just don't reach.

1/4 Cup butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Cup flour
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
3/4 Cup milk

16 oz bag of frozen blackberries-thawed (or 3 or 4 cups of fresh berries)
1/2 Cups sugar

Cream the butter and sugar for the crust.  Add in the dry ingredients and the milk.  Beat until smooth.  Pour into a 8X8 inch pan sprayed with Pam.  Pour the blackberries with any juice on top of the batter.  Spread  1/2 Cup of sugar on top of the berries.
Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or bake at 325 for 35 minutes in a convection oven.
You can use other kinds of berries or fruit.
As the cobbler bakes, the berries drop down to the bottom as the crust rises to the top.  Serve with a scoop of Blue Bell Home Made Vanilla Ice Cream if you really want to make yourself happy.
