Sunset JULY 2002

  • Yield: Makes 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 6 cups blackberries, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) cold butter, cut in chunks
  • 1 cup whipping cream

Preparation

1. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup sugar, cornstarch, tapioca, blackberries, lemon peel, and lemon juice. Mix gently to coat. Pour into a shallow 3- to 4-quart baking dish.

2. In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 1/4 cup sugar. With your fingers or a pastry blender, rub or cut butter into flour mixture until coarse crumbs form. Add cream and stir just until mixture forms a soft, crumbly dough.

3. Pat 1/4-cup portions of dough into flat disks 1/2 inch thick and arrange evenly over fruit.

4. Bake in a 350º oven until topping is golden brown and fruit is bubbling, 45 to 55 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
