This weekend, the seersucker crowd will fill Churchill Downs for this year's highly anticipated horse race. Chef David Danielson and his team will welcome the legion of fans with a slice of Southern hospitality in the form of a golden, flaky crust, and bubbling, sugar-soaked blackberries. If you can't make it down to Kentucky this weekend, hit the kitchen (wearing a fun hat, natch) and whip up chef Danielson's blue-ribbon-worthy recipe for blackberry cobbler at your Derby party. Here's What Everyone Wore to Last Year's Kentucky Derby Blackberry Cobbler with Lemon-Rosemary Biscuit Topping Makes 1 pie Ingredients For the Blackberry Cobbler1 pound of fresh blackberries1 cup of granulated sugar1 cup of water1/4 tbsp corn starch1/4 cup of water For Lemon-Rosemary Biscuit Topping2 cups of flour4 tsp baking powder1/4 tsp baking soda3/4 tsp kosher salt1/2 tsp each of lemon zest and fresh rosemary2 tbsp of butter2 tbsp of shortening3/4 cup of chilled buttermilk How to Throw a Derby Party on Short Notice Directions 1. To make the blackberry filling: In a medium-sized sauce pot, combine water, sugar, and blackberries and cook until blackberries start to break down and syrup becomes sweet. 2. In a small bowl mix corn starch and water to make a slurry to thicken the cobbler filling. Add slurry to the blackberry mixture and cook until thickened. 3. Place cobbler filling in a cast iron skillet. 4. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, lemon zest, rosemary, and salt. 5. Using your fingertips, rub butter and shortening into dry ingredients until mixture looks like crumbs. (The faster the better, you don't want the fats to melt.) 6. Make a well in the center and pour in the chilled buttermilk. Stir just until the dough comes together. The dough will be slightly sticky. 7. Top your cobbler and bake until golden brown, usually 13-15 minutes.
