Berry Crisp

A friend shared this recipe with me recently. She says the secret is the merlot. Let me know what you think of it.

Berry Crisp

2 pounds mixed berries
¼ cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
8 ounce sugar cookie dough (see below)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup merlot wine

Heat oven to 375 degrees

Microwave the berries in a 9 inch deep dish pie plate 10-15 minutes. Stir half way through.
Drain, discard all but ¼ cup juice.
Toss berries, juice, merlot, ¼ cup sugar, and cornstarch in a large bowl with the wine.
Spread berries in pie plate.
Pinch off teaspoon size pieces of cookie dough and arrange evenly over berries.
Sprinkle remaining sugar and cinnamon over dough.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool 15 minutes before serving.
