12 servings


  • 18 ounces mixed fresh berries (4 cups)

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 3 tablespoons minced crystallized ginger

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2/3 cup cold butter, cubed

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

  • Garnish: fresh mint sprigs


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Toss together first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl.

  2. Whisk together flour and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut cold butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly. Add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 3 to 4 times. Pat into a 6- x 4-inch (1-inch-thick) rectangle. Cut into 6 squares; cut squares diagonally into 12 triangles.

  3. Arrange 12 (3 1/2-inch) lightly greased miniature cast-iron skillets on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Divide berry mixture among skillets. Place 1 dough triangle over berry mixture in each skillet.

  4. Bake at 400° for 20 to 24 minutes or until fruit bubbles and crust is golden brown. Cool 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.
