Fresh Berry Cobbler

This is a great recipe for an easy dessert using raspberries (it called for raspberries or blueberries but I've only done it with raspberries so far). Also, it calls for fresh berries but if you pick/buy too many you can freeze them for later. Since we have raspberry bushes this is the case for us--spread them on a cookie sheet to freeze then bag them so they aren't frozen in one big lump. This is such a great treat in the dead of winter when fruit is so expensive at the store.

1/2 C. sugar
1 T. cornstarch
4 C. berries
2 T. water
1 t. lemon juice
1 C. Bisquick baking mix
1/4 C. milk
1 T. sugar
1 T. butter, melted (margarine is okay too)

1. Heat oven to 425.
2. Mix the 1/2 C. sugar and cornstarch in saucepan. Stir in berries, water, and lemon juice. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour berry mixture into ungreased casserole dish.
3. Stir Bisquick, milk, 1T sugar and melted butter just until blended and a dough forms. Drop dough by 6 spoonfuls onto hot berry mixture.
4. Bake about 15 minutes or until the berry mixture is bubbly and topping is light brown.
5. Serve by spooning out one blob of topping and the berry mixture just under and around it per person. It is also great with a dash of cream or ice cream.
