A recipe ! Wild Blackberry Cobbler

This is so yummy!  One of the great things about spring besides the nice weather is the bounty of fruits and vegetables that start to make there appearance.  I found these lovely blackberries at our local store.  I was thrilled to be able to make my aunts blackberry cobbler recipe.  I my aunt got this recipe from this neat old cookbook, simply called The Western Cookbook.  What I really loved about the book was that the cover was wooden and  wood burned with the title and a picture of a cowboy.  Too cute!.

Wild Blackberry Cobbler

3 cups wild blackberries
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 egg, well beaten
1/3 cup milk
3 Tablespoons melted butter
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine the berries, 3/4 cup of sugar and lemon juice and mix well.  Pour into a well greased baking dish and dot with butter and cover with the following batter:  Beat the egg and gradually add the remaining sugar; stir in the melted butter and milk and add the dry ingredients which have been sifted together.  Beat thoroughly.  Bake in a 375 F degree oven for 30 minutes.  Serve hot with plain or whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
