Tuesdays with Dorrie: Cobbling together some Berries
I was so excited when my copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, from my Home to Yours" arrived. It's also my first time participating in a food blogging event. I feel like one of the cool kids now!
This Tuesday, participating bakers made the "Mixed Berry Cobbler". Though the recipe was a bit contentious, a very few modification seem to have done the trick. I added a cup of heavy cream instead of 3/4 cup, and instead of using two cups white flour, I used 1 cup whole wheat, 1 cup white. Finally, I put half the dough on top and half on bottom.
The ramekins were the stars- see below!

These are the sugared berries. I added a teaspoon of almond extract to them, in addition to the other yummy things that Dorie's recipe calls for.
These are the cobblers fresh from the oven: two individual ramikins and one larger pie dish. The smell of warm berries and buttery crust is SO GOOD.
This ramekin looks quite tempting, no?
But they were even better when I cut around the sides and served them upsidedown. You can see that I buttered and sugared the bottom of the dish, then put a circle of dough on the bottom and the top. The bottom soaked up all the tasty berry juices.
