Cornmeal Crust for Cobbler:


1 Cup All Purpose Flour                         ¼ pound (a stick) Cold Butter cut in Small Cubes

1 Cup Plain Yellow Cornmeal                1 Teaspoon Lemon Zest 

¼ Cup Sugar                                            1 ½ Teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract

1 Tablespoon Baking Powder                  ¾ Cup Whole Buttermilk

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt                           ¾ Cup Heavy Cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl or bowl of an electric mixer, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or mixer until the mixture resembles a course meal. Add the vanilla, buttermilk and cream and mix together until mixture looks like  a wet biscuit dough. Fill six  8 ounce ramekins or a one and half quart casserole with the filling. Using a 4 ounce ice cream scoop or a quarter cup measuring cup, scoop the dough on top of the filling. Place cobbler on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and place in preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is browned and the filling is bubbly. Serve warm.  Makes six 8 ounce ramekins or a one and half quart casserole.
