The Story Inn is an ordinary tin-fronted general store that now constitutes almost the entire town of Story (population 7) in Brown County, Indiana and serves inventive dishes such as grilled artichoke sandwiches and this tangy Raspberry-Ginger Cobbler.

Ingredients

  • Rich Butter Pastry (see recipe below)
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • French vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche (optional)

Directions

  1. Prepare Rich Butter Pastry. On a floured surface, roll 1 dough disk from center to edges into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. To transfer pastry, wrap it around the rolling pin. Starting at one side, unroll pastry over a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into the plate without stretching it (stretching pastry causes it to shrink while baking). Trim pastry even with rim of pie plate. Chill the pastry-lined pie plate in the refrigerator or freezer while preparing the filling.
  2. For filling: In a medium bowl, combine raspberries, the 3/4 cup brown sugar, the 1/3 cup flour, the 2 tablespoons crystallized ginger, and the vanilla. Gently toss berries until coated. (If using frozen raspberries, let mixture stand about 45 minutes or until fruit is partially thawed but still icy.)
  3. Remove the pie plate from refrigerator. Remove remaining dough disk from refrigerator. Roll into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Cut slits to allow steam to escape. Stir berry mixture; transfer berry mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate. Place pastry on filling; trim to 1/2 inch beyond edge of plate. Fold top pastry under bottom pastry. Crimp edge as directed.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolk and water. Lightly brush top with the egg mixture. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons brown sugar and 1 teaspoon crystallized ginger. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of the pie with foil. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 20 minutes (or 30 minutes for frozen). Remove foil. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or until filling in center is bubbly and pastry is golden. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with ice cream or creme fraiche. Makes 8 servings.

Rich Buttery Pastry

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 - 7 tablespoons ice water

Directions

  1. Place butter in the freezer while preparing the pastry. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon ice water over part of the flour mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to the side of the bowl. Repeat moistening flour mixture, using 1 tablespoon of ice water at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Using your fingers, gently knead the dough just until a ball forms. Divide dough in half. Using your hands, flatten each piece of dough into a 6-inch disk. Wrap each dish in plastic wrap and chill for 30 to 60 minutes or until dough is easy to handle.
