1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tps. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
9 Tbs. cold butter
1/3 cup boiling water
Ingredients for Filling:
2 Tbs. corn starch
1/4 cup cold water
1 Tbs. lemon juice
4 cups fresh blackberries
1/2 cup sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Cut in the butter until you have a coarse, crumbly mixture. Add the boiling water and stir together well so that all of the dough is wet. Set aside.
  3. Dissolve the cornstarch in the cold water in a medium bowl. Add the lemon juice, berries, and sugar. Mix together well. Pour berries into a 9 - 11 inch cast iron skillet.
  4. Heat mixture over medium heat stirring frequently - mixture will thicken. Remove from heat.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of dough over the berry mixture spreading entirely over the top of the berries.  Put the cast iron skillet on a foil lined cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the dough is golden brown and the berries are thick and bubbly.

Let cool completely and serve with vanilla ice cream....mmmmm!

*If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, bring to a boil in a sauce pan and bake in a 9×9 baking dish.
