Ingredients

  • 3 pounds fresh berries cleaned and sliced
  • 1 lemon zested and juiced
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter diced
  • 1 cup half and half

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, toss berries with lemon zest and juice, cornstarch, vanilla, and white sugar. Spread them out in the 9×13 pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, powdered sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut in butter until it resembles a course meal, or pulse the whole thing together in a food processor.
  • Pour in half and half and stir to form a thick batter.
  • Scoop the batter in large clumps on top of the berries to form a nice cobbler crust.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
