Blackberry Filling

Drop Biscuit Dough


Blackberry Filling

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine the blackberries, lemon juice and sugar. Gently stir in the flour.
    6 cups blackberries, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • Spread the blackberry mixture into the bottom of a medium baking dish or 6 individual baking dishes. Dot with the butter.
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Drop Biscuit Dough

  • Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until medium, pea-size bit of butter remain.
    2 cups all purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Whisk together the egg and milk and add to the flour mixture. Gently stir until just combined.
    1 egg, 2/3 cups whole milk
  • Dollop spoonfuls of the dough onto the top of the blackberries. Sprinkle on extra sugar, if desired.
  • Cover loosely with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
  • Serve as is, with whipped cream or ice cream.


Tips and Techniques

  • Fresh blackberries work best. You can use frozen, if needed, but allow them to thaw first.
  • Store leftovers tightly covered in the refrigerator. Consume within 4-5 days for best results.
