Blackberry Cobbler

  We have a great big Blackberry Patch on our property, but doggone it, if it hasn’t been sooo hot the past 2 summers, that they have dried before they fully came on. 😦  

  I barely got enough for 1 cobbler this year.  Actually, it wasn’t quite 6 cups, so I had to hide some Blueberries in there, but you couldn’t tell.

  This recipe is from Pioneer Woman, and was one of the first ones we tried of hers.  It’s a keeper and we make one every summer!

Blackberry Cobbler

from Pioneer Woman

Blackberry Cobbler

  • 6 cups Fresh Or Frozen Blackberries
  • 1/2 cup Plus 4 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 whole Zest Of Lemon
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 cup Crisco (vegetable Shortening)
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1/2 cup Milk
Preparation Instructions

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 sticky.

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.

Summer traditions taste GOOOOD!

  1. Mmmm, that looks so good. Our Blackberries are doing the same thing here. It is so very dry that they are just drying before we can pick them!
    I have that same PC baking pan. I think I got mine for about 5-10 bucks! Around here people don’t like their PC so they sell ’em for diry cheap! Nice for me tho!:)

  2. Oh goodness, I’ve made so many cobblers this summer. I just love them. I need to get my hands on some blackberries though. Yummmy! I’m sharing this on facebook today – what a gorgeous picture. It just screams summer!! 🙂

  3. Too bad for your blackberry patch but good thinking on hiding those blueberries in the cobbler. The cobbler is so delicious to look at I have decided I will make one this weekend. Great post!
