Wilson Family Cobbler
This was generously shared by a fellow chef, whose Grandmother made this recipe. The biscuit dough bakes up to the top, leaving a very flavorful sauce to serve with it. Can be scaled up for larger applications easily, and is my favorite type of cobbler. Use the best berries you can find.

Cobbler Dough:  
1/4 c shortening 1 1/2 c flour
1 c sugar 2 t baking powder
1 c milk 1/4 t salt
3 pints of mixed berries: blackberry, blueberry, 1 c sugar
       raspberry, boysenberry, and/or strawberry  
2 c boiling water Whole butter

Preheat oven to 350°F. Reserve a 13x9" baking pan.

Cream together the biscuit dough and spread on bottom of baking pan. Toss the berries with the sugar and spoon over the top of the dough. Pour the boiling water over the top and dot with pats of butter and immediately bake in oven until browned, bubbly, and until biscuit tests done. Great served warm with a homemade or good quality ice cream.
