Apple Crisp


2 pounds apples peeled and sliced

1 T Sugar

1T Lemon Juice

Blackberry Cobbler


The Cast of Characters:




self-rising flour



First, place 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter in a microwaveable dish.  Melt the butter.

Now measure 1 cup of sugar and pour into a mixing bowl.

Take self-rising flour… Measure 1 cup… And dump into the bowl.

Whisk in 1 cup of milk.  Mix together well.

Now get your melted butter…And pour it into the bowl.  Whisk together. I love action whisk shots.

Now butter a baking dish… Aww, c’mon. Don’t hold back. Butter that baby!

Now take two generous cups of blackberries. These are fresh, but frozen works just fine.  Give ‘em a good rinse and lightly pat them dry.

Now pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. (Batter…buttered…batter…buttered…Betty Botta bought some butter, but she said, "This butter’s bitter. If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter. But a bit of better butter will make my bitter batter better. So she bought a bit of butter; better than the bitter butter to make her bitter batter better. So ’twas better Betty Botta bought a bit of better butter. Amen.)  Say that fast eighteen times.

Now start sprinkling the 2 cups of blackberries over the top of the batter.

Try to distribute them evenly…Until they’re all in there.

Now, sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar evenly over the top.

Because if some sugar is good, even more sugar is better. That single statement sums up the entire philosophy of my cooking.

Now pop the dish into the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. My dad’s wife, Patsy, likes to sprinkle an additional teaspoon of sugar over the cobbler 10 minutes before it’s done.
