As a mother, and now a grandmother, family and home are very important to me. Some of my favorites memories are of being in the kitchen and cooking with my own mom. Having a good meal over the dinner table with family is priceless! But, making it happen is hard work. I wanted to share with you some of my secrets, tasty dishes, and cooking wisdom. So, that your dinner table will become a gathering place for your own family that they too will come to cherish.....Yours truly, Mystery Mom.

Mom's Berry Cobbler

We have had an overflow of berries from our various plants in our garden.  First the Raspberries, now the Blackberries, and so to come will be the Blueberries, all very welcome Summer treats.  So there is no better way to eat these  wonderful treats than in a nice berry cobbler.  You can use the basics for this recipe to create any fruit cobbler.  I did this because we current have two gallons of blackberries needing to be used in some creations.

Mom's Blackberry Cobbler

6 Cups of Blackberries
1 Cup Sugar
1 heaping Tbs. Cornstarch
1 dash of Cinnamon
1 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
1 Cup of Flour
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Melted Butter
                                                                                   2 Eggs

     Take the berries, 1 cup Sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon and mix together in a pot on the stove on a medium heat.  You will need to stir the mixture until it is thick an bubbly.

     For the topping, you will need to take the baking powder,almond extract,flour,sugar, and eggs and mix together in a large mixing bowl.  

     Once the berry mix is bubbly and thick you will want to pour it into a greased 9 X 13 inch baking pan.

Now take the topping mixture that you have made and you will want to random teaspoon filled clumps of the mixture all over the top of the smoothed out berry mixture that you have already placed in the pan.

Once finished, you will place the dish into an oven that has been preheated to 375.  You will bake the cobbler for about 40 minutes.  Keep an eye on it if your oven is slightly off for some reason.  You want the topping to be only slightly brown with a tinge of crust.  The topping needs to not be overly baked and be too hard or crunchy.
