The instructions call for a slightly sweetened biscuit dough as a topping. The butter is worked into a mixture of flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. The technique is the same used for a flaky pie or tart crust. I prefer to work the mixture with my fingers so that the butter is similar to oatmeal flakes; small but flat pieces. Then heavy cream is added to bring the dry ingredients together into a soft and slightly sticky mass. The heavy cream gives the biscuit a rich and wonderful texture.
Now on to the filling. In a large bowl mixed berries and any other fruit you might wish to add is mixed gently with sugar, corn starch, lemon zest, and a bit of fresh ground pepper. The dough is gently patted down and placed over the fruit in a deep dish pie plate. Baked until golden in color and yup, that's it! Simple and oh so tasty. Nor a complaint in this house. Hope you enjoy it as well.
