Apple Blackberry Cobbler!!

EVERY WHERE YOU look you can begin to see signs that autumn is just around the corner. The other day on our nature walk we looked for signs of autumns approach. It was so fun to pick apples and berries! After we got home we had a family baking session. I think that it made it taste all the better! Here's our recipe, it may be a unique combination but it was pretty tasty!

                    Apple Blackberry Cobbler
4 small/medium apples      2 cups of blackberries
2 Tbsp instant tapioca        2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp melted butter

                             Shortcake Topping
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour         2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup packed brown sugar        1/4 cup melted butter (4 Tbsp)
1/2 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 425. Grease a 3qt casserole and set aside.

Peel and slice the apples and then place them in the casserole. After washing the berries place them in a medium/large mixing bowl and gentle toss with the sugar and tapioca. Pour the berries over the apples, then drizzle with melted butter.

In another bowl whisk the dry ingredients together for the topping. When dry ingredients are evenly distributed add the cream and melted butter. Mix into a stiff dough.

Spoon dough on the fruit in a 'cobbled' fashion. Bake at 425 for 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Enjoy!
