Fresh Fruit Cobbler

3 cups cut up fresh fruit
(rhubarb, or peaches, blueberries, etc.) 2/3 cup sugar + 2 tbsp.,
2 tbsp. flour, or tapioca
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. butter
1 cup flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup shortening, or oil
3 tbsp. milk
1 egg

In bowl mix together the fruit with 2/3 cup sugar, 2 tbsp. flour (or tapioca) and cinnamon. Put into a ungreased 9 inch square pan. Dot top with butter.

In bowl mix together the 1 cup flour, 2 tbsp. sugar, baking powder and salt. If using shortening, cut in with pastry blender to form small crumbs. Add egg and milk and stir with fork to make a soft dough. Drop by spoonfuls over fruit in pan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes, or until fruit is soft. Best served warm with whipped cream.

NOTE: My friend uses tapioca, so I did too. She uses oil, as said it's easier to mix in, but I used shortening.
