What a perfect springtime dessert! It's filled with color and fresh fruit flavor the whole family will savor. I sometimes grate about a tablespoonful of fresh orange or lemon zest and add to the crumb mixture for extra flavor. —Sharon Hadinger, Dublin, Ohio
If you’re looking for something different from the usual cakes and fruit pies, try this old-fashioned dessert. It features a delicious combination of blackberries and blueberries with homemade dumplings on top.
“I love this recipe because I’m not super-confident about making pies," says Tonda Powell of McGehee, Arkansas, "but anyone can make a cobbler—and this one is truly delicious! It can be baking in the oven while you finish dinner…also great with blueberries or raspberries.”
"This is a very good dessert that's easy to make and calls for only a few ingredients," says June Cunningham of Carsonville, Michigan. Refrigerated biscuits form the golden toping over a combination of ruby-red cherry pie filling and frozen blackberries.
My husband loves fresh-picked blackberries at the height of summer, and mango is a favorite combination with the berries in this crumble. A little lime adds just enough zing to balance the sweetness of the filling.—Patricia C. Quinn, Omaha, Nebraska
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.
