Description

This is a more traditional version of “cobbler”: a slightly, but not overly, sweet biscuity topping spooned in clumps over the top of sweetened blackberries, creating a cobblestone effect on the dessert—hence the name “cobbler.” This is a basic, yummy fruit dessert, but what catapults it into the realm of absolutely blissful deliciousness is the addition of a scoop of vanilla ice cream when serving.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Fresh Or Frozen Blackberries
  • ½ cups Plus 4 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • ½ whole Zest Of Lemon
  • 2 cups Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ cups Crisco (vegetable Shortening)
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ½ cups Milk

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine blackberries, ½ cup sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a mixing bowl. Stir and spread out in a buttered pyrex dish.

In a separate bowl pour flour, salt, baking powder, and 1 tablespoon sugar. Add shortening and butter and work mixture together with a pastry blender (or your fingers) until the mixture is coarse. Measure ½ cup milk, add an egg, and mix together. Pour into flour mixture, stirring as you go. Mixture should be smooth and not dry, but not over stickly.

Take clumps of dough and place them on top of the blackberries. Lightly flatten dough with your fingertips. Sprinkle with 2 to 3 tablespoons of sugar and bake until golden for 30 minutes. Berry juice will be slightly thin, but don’t be afraid. It will gradually soak into the biscuity topping and make your life complete.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Of your two cobbler offerings, I tried number two because it looked more like what I am used to.

I like to highlight positives, so I will start with ease of preparation and presentation: this was super easy to make and it came out of the oven looking like a million bucks. Helloooo Nurse!

However, the topping seemed almost too “biscuity” for my tastes. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some biscuits, but as a cobbler topping this was a little dry (granted, I didn’t have any vanilla ice cream available as an accompaniment). The blackberry filling was delicious.

As always, thanks for sharing, Ree. You are a peach.

This oh-so-yummy cobbler was super easy to make and such a crowd pleaser. I brought it to a dinner party the other night and it was totally gobbled up! I used frozen blackberries because fresh were super expensive and it tasted great. I let the blackberries sit out for about 30 minutes before preparing the cobbler. I will for sure be making this again. Thanks P-Dub!!!

I made this last night for some friends. It was delicious and so easy to put together. The cobbler part is not too sweet, and makes a nice counterpoint to the sweet berries. I’ll definitely be making this again.
