TWD: Mixed Berry Cobbler

I think this was the first time I didn't have some kind of accident when baking for TWD. I'd begun to wonder what happened to my baking skills -- I haven't taken anything to work since the key lime coconut pie.

YUM, YUM, YUM!!! I made a double batch and took it to work. A co-worker immediately asked one of his staff if she'd go out and get ice cream -- and she did! It really made the dish.


I have to admit that all these lovely juices did not thicken up. I think it was because the berries were frozen and the cornstarch wouldn't stick to it. There were no complaints and it went very well over the ice cream. And everyone just loved the crust.
Of course, I had to make a mini for myself, to make sure it tasted all right before I foisted it off on my co-workers. It did.
Thank you Beth of Our Sweet Life for picking this dessert. I think I have about 1/4 cup heavy cream left.

I think the ice cream makes this a recipe we'll have to make again and again!
Lucky you to have someone actually go out and buy some!
