Plum Cobbler

There is the possibility, which I will neither confirm nor deny, that I have eaten this for dinner three nights in a row. It’s just really good! And, I mean, it’s basically fruit and a biscuit like I might have had with dinner anyway, so… Yeah basically healthy. Basically.

IMG_5985Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups sliced, fresh, unpeeled plums
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • whipped cream, for serving

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Stir in the plums and lemon juice, then put over medium-high heat.

IMG_5977Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils, then cook, continuing to stir, for 1 minute before removing from heat.

IMG_5978Pour into an ungreased 2 quart casserole, then place in the oven.

IMG_5979Combine the flour, remaining tablespoon of sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and stir together. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Stir in the milk until just evenly combined.

IMG_5980Take the plum mixture out of the oven and drop the dough on it in six large spoonfuls.

IMG_5981Bake 25-30 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown.
