A Cup of …

I am of the opinion that truly great recipes are delicious, easy to make and have a cup of sugar in the ingredient list.

My proof?

Aunt Linda’s Lemonade – In a 2 quart pitcher add 1 cup sugar and 2/3 cup “Real Lemon” lemon juice then fill to the 2 quart mark with water.

A cool glass of Sweet Tea – Add 1 cup sugar and tea bags to tea pitcher.  Pour in hot water and allow to steep. Remove tea bags.

and this:

Blackberry Cobbler (click through for a mouthwatering picture)

2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) blackberries (do not use blueberries)

1 cup sugar

1 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk

1/2 cup butter, melted

Cream, whipped cream or ice cream, if desired

1. In medium bowl, stir together blackberries and sugar. Let stand about 20 minutes or until fruit syrup forms. Heat oven to 375°F.

2. In large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and milk. Stir in melted butter until blended. Spread in ungreased 8-inch square pan. Spoon blackberry mixture over batter.

3. Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until dough rises and is golden. Serve warm with cream.

I dare you to disagree with me.
