Southern Blackberry Cobbler

4 c Fresh blackberries
3/4 c + 2 Tbsp sugar
3 tb + 1 3/4 c flour
1 1/2 c Water
1 tb Lemon juice
2 ts Baking powder
1 ts Salt
1/4 c Shortening
6 tb Whipping cream
6 tb Buttermilk or sour milk
2 tb Butter, melted
Cream & sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place berries in a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish. Combine 3/4 c sugar and 3 Tbsp flour; add water and lemon juice, mixing well. Pour syrup over berries; bake about 15 minutes while preparing the pastry. Make pastry by combining 1 3/4 c flour, 2 Tbsp sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; stir in whipping cream and buttermilk. Knead dough 4 or 5 times; roll to about 1/4" thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut dough to fit baking dish. Raise oven temperature to 425. Place pastry over hot berries; brush with melted butter. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown. Serve cobbler warm with cream and sugar. Serves 8
