Ingredients:  
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups sifted self-rising flour
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup milk
2 cups blackberries, mashed slightly
1 tsp cinnamon

Directions:
Directions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish. In a saucepan, heat sugar and water until sugar melts. Cut shortening into flour until particles are like fine crumbs. Add milk and stir with a fork only until dough leaves the side of the bowl. Turn out onto a lightly floured board or pastry cloth, kead just until smooth. Roll dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle cinnamon over berries; then sprinkle berries evenly over the dough. Roll up dough like a jelly roll. Dampen the edge of the dough with a little water and seal. Place in pan with melted butter. Pour sugar syrup carefully around rolls. (This looks like too much liquid, but the crust will absorb it.) Bake 55 - 60 minutes.

Variations; This cobbler may be made with other fresh, frozen or canned fruits, such as apples, cherries or peaches. If packed in liquid, drain and substitute for part of the sugar syrup. Always use 2 cups of liquid.
