Berry Overload

Our freezer is still full of last season's berries. We had bumper crops of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, so I'm still trying to use them all up. I hate wasting food, and I know we'll have more berries coming before long so...I'm getting pretty creative.

Made this yesterday afternoon, and it was a hit. I should've taken a picture of it (before Hubby dug in!) because it was really very attractive--in a warm bubbling berry sort of way.

Any ideas on how to use the gallons of berries we've still got lurking in the deep freeze? All suggestions are appreciated!

What about you? Anything taking up space in your freezer? Hey, I'm still feeling very creative here...

Bang-Up Berries

2¼ cups flour
½ cup butter
1 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
½ cup milk
3 cups blueberries
1 cup granulated sugar

Combine berries, sugar and ¼ cup flour in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture bubbles. Remove pan from heat and pour berry mixture onto a buttered baking dish. Set aside.

Combine reserved flour, butter, salt, baking powder and milk in a large bowl. Stir all ingredients until a soft dough forms. On a lightly floured surface roll dough until it is the same size as the baking dish.

Place dough over berries in dish.

Place baking dish in a preheated 350-degree oven.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Serve warm.
