Blackberry Fruit Cobbler Recipe

Publisher Photo
My grandmother made this cobbler when I was a little girl I can still remember the fun we had first picking blackberries together in the hills. Blackberries are my favorite filling, but this cobbler can also be made with apples.

I tried this recipe because it sounded the most like my grandmothers. It turned out not only beautiful but tastes absolutely wonderful!! My Aunt is a cook and she loved it; so I am now on my 10th cobbler! I am not a cook and thought it was fun, my 13 yr old daughter & friend loved helping roll up the cobbler. Audrey (13) even made one by herself! Highly recommend!

I was a little nervous right before I put it in the oven because it looked like a soupy mess but it came out a gorgeous masterpiece - it was so worth the time and energy! So wonderfully delicious!

This is not a cobbler. It is a blackberry dessert. The definition of a cobbler is: a deep-dish fruit dessert with a thick top crust. It is to time consuming to make and a big mess.
