Quick and easy blackberry cobbler

We have a few “tame” blackberry bushes in our yard. (They’re not looking so hot this year – we’re hoping they make it though the drought!) Usually we get tons of berries from them, and this cobbler recipe is one of our favorite things to do with them.

Start with around 5 cups of blackberries. We use our fresh off the bushes, but frozen would work well, too.

fresh blackberries
Put 1/2 cup of butter and 1 egg in a mixing bowl.

Add 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1 cup of sugar (I use Splenda).
flour and sugar
Beat it all up to form your dough for the biscuits.

Put the berries in a large saucepan with around 1 cup of sugar. (Again, I use Splenda.) Our berries were just a bit tart, so I used a little more than 1 cup of Splenda.
sugared blackberries
Heat the berries and sugar over medium heat, just until the fruit gets warm and starts to reduce, and you have that nice juice collecting on the bottom of the pan.
hot blackberries
Put the hot berries in an 8x8 or 9x9 pan, and drop the dough by spoonfuls on top of the fruit. I use my 9x9 Pampered Chef stoneware square baker for cobbler. I love this pan!

Bake in a 375 degree oven for one hour.

Ta da, quick and easy cobbler! (P.S. - Fantastic with vanilla ice cream. Farmer Doc likes this with our homemade cookies and cream ice cream!)

This recipe also works well with other kinds of fruit or berries. What are you going to try?
