  • Precook the filling. Combine the berries, sugar, and cornstarch in a medium bowl.  Pour into a baking dish and cover tightly with foil.  Bake the filling for 20 minutes to thicken the filling.
  • Make the topping.  While the filling is cooking. Combine the butter and sugar with a mixer on medium speed, until its light and fluffy.  Add the egg yolk and vanilla.  Slowly add in the dry ingredients and blend on low until just combined.
  • Assemble. When the filling is done, remove the foil.  Dot the fruit with the sugar cookie topping with 2 tablespoon-sized dollops.
  • Bake and serve. Bake for 35-45 minutes until the topping is browned and the filling is bubbly.  During the last few minutes of baking time, sprinkle sugar on top if desired. Allow cobbler to stand at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.  Best when served with vanilla ice cream.
