If you can't get blackberries, try blueberries in this wonderful, old-fashioned
cobbler. In fact, nearly any berries except strawberries will make a good
cobbler, especially when you pair them with peaches.

Vegetable oil spray
2 cups fresh or thawed frozen blackberries
2 cups peeled and thinly sliced peaches (about 4 or 5 peaches)
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus 1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cold unsalted butter, cut into 6 pieces
¾ teaspoon grated lemon peel
½ cup low-fat buttermilk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Coat a deep, 9-inch pie plate with
vegetable oil spray.
For the filling, combine the blackberries, peaches, sugar,
cornstarch, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir to mix
well, then spoon into the prepared pie plate.
For the dough, whisk together the flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, the
baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl. Using a
pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the flour mixture
until it becomes crumbly. Stir in the lemon peel. Whisk together
the buttermilk and oil in a small bowl. Pour the liquid into the
dry ingredients in the bowl. Use a large fork to stir the mixture
just until the dough is combined and moistened. Turn the dough out
onto a lightly floured work surface. Roll or pat it into a rough 8-
inch circle. Lift the dough circle and lay it over the fruit in the
dish. The dough will be soft and may tear; simply pinch and patch
the tears together (the dough is supposed to look "cobbled"). Prick
the dough in several places with the tines of a fork, then sprinkle
the top with the remaining 1 teaspoon sugar.
Bake the cobbler until the fruit is bubbly and the dough turns
golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool, then serve slightly warm
or at room temperature.
