Hints & Tips
blackberry cobbler is especially good using the fresh wild blackberries. Of course you can
also use frozen blackberries if you want. When I am really
lazy or in a hurry, I'll substitute a buttermilk baking mix, such as Bisquick,
for the biscuit topping in this recipe.

Blackberry Cobbler Recipe
Yields: 10 to 12 servings
Prep time: 15 min
Bake time: 20 min
6 to 8 cups fresh or frozen
1 1/2 cups granulated
1/2 cup all-purpose
2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed
1 to 2 tablespoons blackberry liqueur, optional
Biscuit Topping (see recipe below)
Vanilla ice cream
* The amount of blackberries used depends on the size of your pan. If using a
Cast-Iron Skillet, use 6 cups - a 13x9-inch baking pan, use 8 cups.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (this is to catch the
blackberry juice that usually boils over from the baking dish or skillet).
If using fresh blackberries, wash, stem, and drain blackberries.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, flour, blackberries, lemon juice, and blackberry liqueur. Pour into
prepared baking dish or skillet.
Bake, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly. When blackberry mixture is hot, remove from
oven and spoon Biscuit Topping mixture onto the top in 10 to 12 large spoonfuls.
Return to oven and bake another 20 to 25 minutes or until biscuits are lightly
browned and a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the dumplings comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before
serving. Serve either warm or room temperature. To serve, top with vanilla ice cream.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.
