                          -- quartered and pitted
   12      ounces        blackberries
    1      cup           sugar
      1/4  cup           quick cooking tapioca
    2      tablespoons   chilled unsalted butter -- (1/4 stick) diced
                         Biscuit Topping
    1 1/2  cups          all-purpose flour
    2      tablespoons   sugar
    2      teaspoons     baking powder
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
    6      tablespoons   unsalted butter -- chilled, diced
    9      tablespoons   whipping cream -- chilled
                         Vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
 
 For Fruit:Preheat oven to 375°F. Butter 8x8x2-inch glass baking dish. Combine
apricots,
 berries, sugar and tapioca in large bowl; toss gently to blend. Let stand 15
minutes,
 tossing fruit occasionally. Transfer fruit mixture to prepared dish. Dot with
butter.
 Bake until fruit is tender and juices bubble thickly, about 50 minutes. Cool
 completely in dish. (Can be made 4 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)
 For Biscuit Topping:
 Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in medium
 bowl; whisk to blend. Add butter, rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles
 coarse meal. Gradually add 1/2 cup cream, mixing with fork until moist clumps
 form. Knead gently in bowl until dough holds together.
 Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 9x6-inch rectangle. Cut dough
 lengthwise into 8 strips, each about 3/4 inch wide. Arrange 4 strips in opposite
 direction, forming lattice. Press ends of pastry strips firmly into fruit. Brush
dough
 with 1 tablespoon cream.
 Bake cobbler until filling is heated through and lattice is golden brown, about
30
 minutes. Spoon warm cobbler into deep bowls; top with ice cream.
