Blueberry & Raspberry Cobbler

My grandmother was in charge of anything and everything sweet. As a rule, if it had sugar, she probably made it. The woman made cakes and cookies and pies on a daily basis. I kid you not. Pie was acceptable for breakfast. Of course it was great for after dinner too. But you had to eat your vegetables for that. You also had to display perfect manners. My grandfather was a stickler for that. I have to admit I didn't pass that along to my children like I probably should have. Oh sure, they place a napkin on their lap, know not to place their elbows on the table and such, but I do not take it to extremes. Which takes me back to why I always loved dessert for breakfast. It broke every rule.

This recipe I happen to have swiped off Pioneer Woman's site. She makes it just like Gram did. Although, I don't have self rising flour, ever. So the baking power is in the recipe along with some cinnamon just like my Gram would have done.
