Blackberry Cobbler ~ Easy ~ Fresh ~ Delicious
Hi Friends……It is blackberry season here in the Midwest and I must say it is a fantastic crop this year. I will be posting 3 different post to show you exactly what I did with berries. So be on the look out in the next couple of weeks for the other ideas for berries.
So first I wanted to share my Blackberry Cobbler recipe with you……now I know that all you people are busy with kids, work and life stuff so whenever I can share something that is a little easier I love to do that.
Making good food for your family doesn’t have to be hard.
First off I am not too proud to admit I do not make my own pie crust. (Gasp!)
Believe me, I have tried
many a couple of times over 15+ years ago, but it was not very good and it takes a little more time that I really want to invest, so I go the easy route and use Pillsbury pie dough for my cobblers and pies, and it is darn good, so why not.
Ok, let’s get this cobbler started.
I do not have a blackberry patch of my own, I wish I did, I bought my berries from a local farmer, which is good because I do love supporting our farmers.
I wanted to make several recipes with my berries so I bought a flat, which is 8 quarts of berries.
Prepare your berries by rinsing to remove any dirt, leaves and stems.
Add berries, sugar, butter, cornstarch stir gently.
Line your pie pan or dish with a layer of pie dough. Add a layer of the blackberry mixture, then your next layer of pie dough, then blackberry mixture again. 2 layers of berries, with dough on bottom, in between and then on top.
After your second layer of blackberries add your final pie dough strips in a crisscross pattern.
Bake until golden brown.
- 3 cups Blackberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar
- 2 Tablespoon butter
- 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
- Pillsbury Pie Dough
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Prepare 2 quart casserole dish with non-stick spray
- Place berries in medium mixing bowl, add sugar and melted butter and stir.

- Add another layer of pie dough
