1 c Flour
1/2 ts Salt
Vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 c Sugar
4 c Blackberries, picked over,

In a large bowl, stir together the cornstarch an 1/4 cup cold water until
cornstarch is completely dissolved. Add 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, and
blackberries, and combine the mixture gently but thoroughly. Transfer to an
8-inch cast-iron skillet. In a bowl, combine well the flour, remaining
sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in the butter until the mixture
resembles coarse meal. Add 1/4 cup boiling water and stir the mixture until
it just forms a dough. Bring the blackberry mixture to a boil on top of the
stove, stirring. Drop spoonfuls of the dough carefully onto the boiling
mixture, and bake the cobbler on a foil lined baking sheet in the middle of
a preheated 400f oven for 20-25 minutes or until the topping is golden.
