Fresh Blackberry Cobbler

“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.”
