Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? Yep! And what better way to celebrate than with a bowl of vanilla ice cream accompanied with warm berry cobbler? I've never made cobbler before, so I was surprised at how easy and simply delicious this recipe is. It's a great way to enjoy all those beautiful blueberries in season now.

Blackberry Blueberry Cobbler
adapted from Food Coma
1 pint blackberries
1 pint blueberries
1 cup sugar
2 tbspns corn starch
3/4 cup flour
zest of 1/2 a lemon
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup butter, melted

In a 9 X 9 baking dish stir together the berries, 1/2 cup of the sugar and 2 tbspns corn starch. You just made the filling! Easy!

For the crust whisk the flour, the second 1/2 cup of sugar, lemon zest, baking powder and salt together in a separate bowl. Stir in the egg, milk and vanilla until incorporated. Pour in the melted butter after it has cooled  a bit (you don't want to scramble your egg!) and stir until you have a nice batter.

Pour the batter over the berries. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until the batter is cooked through. Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
