   In a large bowl, stir together the cornstarch an 1/4 cup cold water until
   cornstarch is completely dissolved.  Add 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, and
   blackberries, and combine the mixture gently but thoroughly. Transfer to an
   8-inch cast-iron skillet.
   In a bowl, combine well the flour, remaining sugar, baking powder, and
   salt.  Blend in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1/4
   cup boiling water and stir the mixture until it just forms a dough.
   Bring the blackberry mixture to a boil on top of the stove, stirring. Drop
   spoonfuls of the dough carefully onto the boiling mixture, and bake the
   cobbler on a foil lined baking sheet in the middle of a preheated 400f oven
   for 20-25 minutes or until the topping is golden. Serve warm with vanilla
   ice cream.
