Hot Cobbler and Cold Ice Cream

We picked blackberries again yesterday morning and wound up with about 4 cups. What to do with four cups of berries when your freezer is completely full? Make a cobbler of course. I owed my dad a cobbler from Father's Day so I decided to make one last night.

How completely yummy does that look? It came together in no time at all and was super easy to make. My grandmother gave me this blackberry cobbler recipe. Seriously, its the easiest dessert ever.

In a large bowl mix 2-3 tsp of cornstarch with 1 cup of sugar

Stir in 4 cups of berries

Let sit until berries start to absorb sugar

Pour into casserole dish and dot with butter or margarine

Then cover with pie crust and sprinkle sugar over the top

Bake at 350 degrees until crust is light golden brown

Top with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

You can use a storebought crust but I almost always make mine from scratch. I have a hard time paying two dollars for pie crust when I can make one in no time for a fraction of the cost. Plus homemade crust is just so much better. Also, you don't have to use cornstarch. It just depends on how juicy you want your cobbler to be. I don't always use it because I like to just pour the juice over the icecream. Mmmmm...


  1. Hi there, glad you found me in bloggy land. Thanks for visiting. Girlfriend, freeze some of those squash that you're getting lots of! Then you can enjoy their goodness this winter.

  2. The cobbler looks so yummy. I think I gained two pounds just looking at it. ;) I *can* make a pie crust, but I get so frustrated doing it. Yours look great (I saw the fourth of July pie, too--great work! I bet it was delicious.)

  3. I LOVE blackberries! That cobbler looks wonderful!

  4. This looks absolutely scrumptious! I have never tried to make anything but peach...so this is for sure going on my TO DO list!
