Slow Cooker Berry Cobbler

This colorful cobbler is very juicy, but the sweetened berry "sauce" is so delicious it's worth spooning up. If you don't have time to make[ the sour cream topping, a sprinkle of confectioners' sugar or a dollop of vanilla yogurt works well, too.]

Ingredients
  • Berry Filling:
  • Unsalted butter, for greasing insert
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • Two 12-ounce bags frozen mixed berries (about 5 1/2 cups)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • Biscuit Topping:
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch fine salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Whipped Sour Cream Topping:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
Directions

For the filling: Butter the sides and bottom of the insert of a 6-quart slow cooker. Whisk together the cornstarch, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Add the mixture to the insert, add the berries and granulated sugar and toss.

For the biscuit topping: Whisk together the flour, 2 tablespoons of the granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and rub the mixture together with your fingers so that it forms a coarse meal with some pea-sized lumps. Add the milk and stir with a wooden spoon to form a wet dough.

Drop spoonfuls of the dough on top of the berry mixture. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon granulated sugar and the cinnamon and sprinkle over the dough. Cover the slow cooker and set to high for 3 to 4 hours. The cobbler should be bubbly and the biscuits should be cooked through. Let rest for 20 minutes before serving.

For the sour cream topping: Meanwhile, combine the heavy cream, sour cream and confectioners' sugar in a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixture until the mixture forms medium peaks.

Spoon the cobbler into bowls and top with the whipped sour cream topping.
