Equipment

  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Pastry Blender or Two Knives
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • 9½ inch Square Baking Dish

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups Organic Flour
  • 1 tsp Real Salt
  • 1⅓ cup Organic Butter Vegan: Earth Balance Organic Whipped Buttery Spread
  • 16 ounces Organic Mixed Berries, Frozen or Fresh
  • ½ cup Organic Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Ice Water
  • Organic Cardamom
  • Organic Nutmeg

Instructions
 

  • Evenly mix flour and salt into the bowl.
  • Remove about ¼ of the mixture and set aside.
  • With pastry blender or two knives, roughly cut in 1 cup butter.
  • Place the bowl with the mixture into the freezer for at least one hour or more.
  • Remove bowl and allow to sit for about 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Butter 9½ inch baking dish making sure the corners are lubricated.
  • When butter has slightly softened, use your fingers, pastry blender or knives to incorporate butter into the flour.
  • Make a paste of the ¼ cup of flour and some of the ice water.
  • Sprinkle the paste over the flour/butter mixture.
  • Quickly blend together using a fork or your hands until flour is moistened and can be pressed into a ball. Add more ice water if necessary. Over mixing can lead to pastry being tough.
  • Roll out on lightly floured surface to ⅛ thickness. (You can press the bottom crust directly into the baking dish.)
  • Add room temperature berries, sugar and ⅓ cup butter cut into small pieces.
  • Sprinkle with cardamom and nutmeg.
  • Cover with top crust or create a lattice design by cutting dough into strips with a knife. If covering completley with crust, using a sharp knife, cut at least three slits into the center of the dough so that the pie can breathe.
  • Sprinkle a little sugar on top of the cobbler and bake for approximately 35 minutes.
  • Allow to cool and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
