For the dough:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 9 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/3 cup boiling water

For the filling:

  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • For the dough, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Cut in the butter until you have a coarse, crumbly mixture. Pour in the boiling water and stir together well so that all of the dough is wet. Set aside.
  • To make the filling, dissolve the cornstarch in the water. Add the berries to a large, deep cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the cornstarch slurry, lemon juice, and sugar to the pan and stir well.
  • Heat mixture over medium heat until boiling, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • Drop pieces of dough over the berry mixture and place the cast iron pan on a foil lined cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the dough is golden brown and the berries are thick and bubbly.
  • (If you don't have a cast iron pan, bring to a boil in a sauce pan and bake in a 9x9 baking dish.)
  • Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
