Wow-I was really impressed with this recipe; the taste was fabulous (one of the best cobblers I've tasted). I had 10 cups of fresh blackberries that I needed to use, though, and wanted to make a larger pan due to the size of my family. So this is what I used for the BERRY mixture: 10 cups of fresh blackberries, 5 tablespoons cornstarch, 1/2 cup cold water, 1 3/4 cups sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. For the DOUGH, I used 2 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1 cup of sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla, 2 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of salt, 12 tablespoons of cold butter, and 1/2 cup of boiling water. Followed the rest of the recipe exactly as described using these ingredients. Baked at 350 in a greased 9X13 casserole dish for about an hour, until the dough was browned. Everyone in my family loved it--especially the crust. I could see how this recipe could be adapted for other types of fruit very easily.
