Recipe from

Southern Living


1 quart frozen blackberries
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup milk
Whipped cream (optional)


Bring first 3 ingredients and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil in a large ovenproof Dutch oven; reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.

Combine remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, flour, baking powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, and nutmeg in a medium bowl; stir in milk just until blended (dough will be thick). Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto hot blackberry mixture.

Bake at 400° for 35 minutes or until golden. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
