Reviews for Favorite Blackberry Cobbler
"I have made this recipe many times, always with fresh blackberries. It always turns out wonderfully and is one of my favorite summer desserts."
"No sure yet. It's still cooling, but the filling was so soupy. Much more filling than batter. Maybe using frozen berries was the problem and the recipe should have suggested less water? Doesn't look too promising and I'm stunned by all the positive reviews for this."
"This is just like the blackberry cobbler my mom used to make when I was a little girl (59 now). Delicious and will be the only recipe I use for cobbler from now on."
"The topping was soup! Do not use 1/2 cup milk. The recipe says till moist but I was in a hurry and just dumped in 1/2 cup WAY TOO MUCH. It is cooling now may be able to save it"
"This recipe is the best. I have made it a number of times since I found it last summer on Taste of Home and it is so easy and quick to make, and delicious to boot! Last week I had fresh peaches and used those in place of the blackberries, and it turned out every bit as good. Other than that I make no adjustments to the recipe."
"Used fresh wild blackberries. Delightful! Perfect texture, taste, and sweetness."
"So easy and DELICIOUS! It was gone in no time. Will definitely make it again & again. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!"
"I made this with dewberries and served with vanilla ice cream. It was delicious and easy to make!"
"Out of this world tasty. My first cobbler and it was a huge success."
