Blackberry Cobbler

There seems to be a lot of  different opinions on what is a “cobbler”.  Some toppings are like a pie crust, some like a biscuit, and others with a mix of oats and nuts like a crisp.  Even though they are all good, this is my personal favorite topping for cobbler.  A light and airy sweet  mix between a scone and a cake {okay, you know it has to be good when there is both heavy cream and buttermilk in the mix}.  Simple and easy, cobbler is always perfect for summer celebrations . . . and just right for enjoying by the fire on those cold winter nights coming up!




Blackberry Cobbler


1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
5 cups fresh blackberries (or 28 ounces frozen blackberries, thawed and drained)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 recipe Cobbler Topping*
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon sugar


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Combine 1 cup sugar and flour; add berries, and toss well.  (If using frozen berries, increase flour to 1/3 cup.)  Sprinkle with lemon juice.  Spoon into a greased 9 inch square baking dish.

Prepare Cobbler Topping, and spoon over blackberries.   Drizzle with butter, and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.

Bake, uncovered, at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until browned and bubbly.  Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.



*Cobbler Topping

1 3/4  cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening (I use butter-flavored)
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup buttermilk

Combine first 4 ingredients, cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.  Stir in whipping cream and buttermilk just until blended.

You’ll love this one down to the last spoonful!
