  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 cups fresh blackberries rinsed and drained


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the boiling water and mix until evenly moist.
  • In a saucepan, dissolve the cornstarch in cold water. Mix in the remaining 1 cup sugar, lemon juice and blackberries. Bring to a boil over medium to medium-high heat, stirring frequently until thoroughly mixed and all cornstarch has been completely dissolved. Pour mixture into an oven-safe baking dish.
  • Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto the top of the berries.
  • Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until dough is golden brown.
