Best Nominated Berry Cobbler/Pie
This recipe was nominated as the best recipe on one of the Russian women’s community forums. It became so popular that I decided to make it and post it on my website so that it would be available to everyone forever. Our family were invited for a very nice dinner last night to our friend’s house and I thought that this cobbler/pie will be a good addition for our somewhat cool Floridian dinner. It came out unbelievably tasty and I would like to thank these Russian ladies who suggested this recipe for me. It is very easy to make and would sure make it again for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
From from this amount of the ingredients you can make two 8″ round, one 8″by 11″ inch or one 8″ by 8″ inch pie.
Ingredients for the crust:
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 3 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 soften butter stick
- 3 cups of any berries frozen or fresh
- 1/4-1/2 cup of brown sugar, you can use less if you like your pie to be more sour tasting
- 4 tablespoons of cornstarch or all purpose flour
In large mixing bowl mix with your hands soft butter and flour until it is all combined.
Add sour cream, egg, sugar, salt, baking soda and continue to mix it until it is all combined. Transfer this dough into the plastic wrap and place it into refrigerator while you prepare the pie filling.
If you are using fresh berries then wash and dry them first, if you are using frozen berries you do not need to defrost them because the all liquid will be absorbed by cornstarch if you would like it to be a pie style or use flour for a cobbler then the filling will be more runny. Mix cornstarch and brown sugar in the bowl
and then sprinkle this mix on top of your berries.
Make sure that berries are well coated.
Preheat your oven to 400F. Divide the dough into two pieces one needs to be about 3/4 of the size of the whole dough because we use it as a bottom crust. The dough will be very sticky, while rolling add more flour. Place rolled dough on the bottom of the baking pan.
Pour your coated berries on top of this dough.
Now prepare the top crust. Make sure you leave some wholes on the top of your cobbler/pie.
Bake your pie for 15 minutes at 400F then turn the oven temperature down to 350F and continue to bake it for another 25-30 minutes or until the crust turn golden brown in color.
Serve your cobbler/ pie warm or cold. We like it warm with whipped cream topping.
