Taste of Autumn...

Autumn is just around the corner and you can begin to feel that nip in the air. Our days are getting shorter and kids will heading back to the class room. Every where you look you can see the signs. Apples are falling from the trees and black berries are ripening everywhere. That being the case we thought we'd share a lovely autumn dessert to grace your table.

Apple & Blackberry Cobbler
4 small/medium apples      2 cups of blackberries
2 Tbsp instant tapioca        2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp melted butter
Shortcake Topping
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour                    2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup packed brown sugar                   1/4 cup melted butter (4 Tbsp)
1/2 cup heavy cream
Preheat oven to 425. Grease a 3qt casserole and set aside. Peel and slice the apples and then place them in the casserole. After washing the berries place them in a medium/large mixing bowl and gentle toss with the sugar and tapioca. Pour the berries over the apples, then drizzle with melted butter. In another bowl whisk the dry ingredients together for the topping. When dry ingredients are evenly distributed add the cream and melted butter. Mix into a stiff dough. Spoon dough on the fruit in a 'cobbled' fashion. Bake at 425 for 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Enjoy!
