Good morning Nancy'
I have to ask about when you use biscuits and do not use them all and put them in the freezer so when you take 1 or 2 out to bake do you thaw or put in the oven frozen. Need to know - Thank You all
Dot in FL

Slow Berry Cobbler Recipe


1 (10-ounce) bag frozen strawberries
1 (10-ounce) bag frozen blueberries
1 (10-ounce) bag frozen raspberries
1/3 to 2/3 cup sugar, depending on your level of preferred sweetness
1/2 cup baking mix

2 1/4 cups baking mix
1/4 cup sugar, plus 1/4 cup
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Spray the insert of a slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, toss together all the frozen fruit, sugar and 1/2 cup baking mix. Transfer the fruit to the slow cooker. In another large mixing bowl, stir together 2 1/4 cups baking mix, 1/4 cup sugar, melted butter and milk with a wooden spoon. With your hands, drop bits of dough on top of the fruit in the slow cooker. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and ground cinnamon. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top of the dough and place the lid on the slow cooker. Turn the power onto high and slow cook for 3 to 4 hours until the topping has puffed and the fruit is bubbling.

Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

I placed the following plea in the May 19 Newsletter: “
From the Newsletter of May 18, to Linda NM: In your “
Chili Goulash” recipe (the last recipe in the Newsletter), you have listed the ingredient “1 block chili,” and I don’t, for the life of me, know what that means. I’d love to try the recipe, so for this old lady, could you tell me what a “block” of chili is! It’s probably something simple, but I am flummoxed! Thank you so very much. Auntie M. in TX”

Have I missed the answer? The May 19 Newsletter had another recipe from Linda NM, a “Chili Cheese Dip” which also used a brick or block of chili. I still don’t know what a “brick” or “block” of chili is!!! Does anyone have the answer? The recipes look to be very good. Thanks so much. Again,
Auntie M. in TX

I had problems finding out what a block or brick of chili was. Here is a an ad on a page that tells what it is.

I wanted to let Barb know that the size of the German chocolate bar called for in the German's Chocolate Pie I posted this week, is a 4 oz. bar. As far as I know, that is the only size I've seen in the stores. I hope you enjoy the pie, as it is really wonderful.
