Best Blackbrry Cobbler Recipe

I’ve tweaked this recipe a few times, and everyone enjoys it. You can use frozen blackberries, but fresh are best. The lime zest really complements the sweet fruit, and the sour cream pastry is delightful. —Kimberly Reisinger, Spring, Texas

MY REVIEW

This is delicious with mixed berries. I didn't have any sour cream so I used plain Greek yogurt as a substitute and it turned out lovely.

Delicious!! But I have to confess I used frozen blueberries instead...it still was great! I will be trying blackberries next time!!

Yum! Yum! Yum! Red raspberries are good, too, but you need to double the amount of sugar. I had no heavy cream, so I used just nonfat sour cream and added a little water to make the right consistency. It still came out nice and light.

I used strawberries, blueberries, & peaches to equal 6 cups of fresh fruit. Also used 1/2 tsp of cinnamon in place of lime zest. Delicious.

MY REVIEW

Blackberries are expensive in my region (New England) yet blueberries are in abundence during the summer months so I substituted blueberries. My family freaked. This recipe was easy and delicious. Nobody could tell that it was a 'light' recipe. And yes, it is more like a light biscuit dough which is a pleasant change of pace. Keep 'em coming! Thanks
