  • Place the blackberries in a mixing bowl, and sprinkle with lemon juice. Toss with 1 cup sugar and cornstarch until evenly coated. Place into the prepared baking dish, and arrange the cubes of butter on top. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together. Cut in 1 cup of chilled, diced butter using a pastry cutter until the butter is in pieces no larger than a pea. Stir in the buttermilk until a batter has formed. Spoon the batter evenly over the blackberries. Brush the top of the batter with additional buttermilk to moisten, then sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the the fruit is tender, and the biscuit top is golden, about 25 minutes.

I did not care for this cobbler recipe. I could not stir the 4C flour etc. Not happy as I just lost 1/2# of butter along with all the other ingredients. Don't know if it was my mistake or the recipe it self. Read More

The filling was wonderful! I found the dough/crust to be very thick and almost biscuit like. Next time I will use the filling recipe and find a thin flaky crust recipe to use. Read More

Very nice light biscuit cobbler however this was TOO much dough. Half of the recipe would be ample. I made the cobbler using peaches; also very good. Read More

Made it according to the recipe followed the instructions to the tee everyone loved it. Whike. the BlackBerries were thawing I caught the juice in a bowl when I serve the cobbler I put A scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and then drizzled it with the juice from the berries I had added a little sugar to it to make it a tad sweeter.
