Easy Four Berry Cobbler

Last week my sweet tooth got the better of me.    This cobbler was the result.

I wanted something sweet.   I scouted the fridge.   The freezer.   The cabinet.   Nothing jumped out at me.     Surely there had to be something that could be quickly and easily put together.

Back to the freezer.    A bag of mixed berries.    A bag of cranberries.

Cobblertown, here we come!

What You Need

For the fruit layer
3 cups of frozen berries - 2 cups of mixed (blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry) and 1 cup of cranberries {any  berry combination of your choice will be delicious}
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons corn starch
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

For the cobbler topping
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup oats - I used old fashioned
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

What You Do

Preheat the oven to 375.
Coat an 8x8 pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl combine the frozen berries, sugar, starch, water and cinnamon.   Stir until any corn starch chunks are broken down.    Pour into the 8x8 pan.

In a small to medium bowl, cream sugar and butter.  Stir in the milk and vanilla.   In a small bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder and salt, then add to the butter and sugar.  Stir to mix into a batter.  Spoon the cobbler topping over the fruit layer.   It won't cover everything, but it will be close.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until topping is baked and the fruit is bubbling hot.     I highly recommend eating it straight out of the oven.    And then for breakfast until pan is empty.

Meanwhile in Maui

We had managers outing a few weeks ago and went out on a sunset sail.   Such a beautiful evening!
