There are already quite a few blackberry cobbler recipes on here, why not 1 more? I learned this one from my mom. She always has to make it for me and my sisters when we visit her. Who knew such a simple recipe could taste so good?

Ingredients

PIE CRUST

3 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
sugar
1 c
crisco (i use butter flavor)
1 large
egg
1/3 c
ice water
2 tsp
vinegar

FILLING

5-6 c
fresh or frozen blackberries
1/4 c
sugar (or more to taste)
1 tsp
cinnamon
1 tsp
nutmeg
flour or cornstarch to thicken
1
zest of lemon (finely diced)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix flour, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Cut in the crisco with a fork or pastry cutter until well mixed.
2
In a separate small bowl, put the egg, ice water, and vinegar-stir well.
3
Pour the liquid ingredients into the flour and mix until you can form it into a ball.
4
Take 1/2 of the dough and roll out on floured board. With a knife, cut into strips and lay 1/2 of them in bottom of baking dish. (I used a glass 8x11 dish but you can use a 9" pie plate too)
5
In a saucepan, heat the berries with the lemon zest, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add sugar to taste. I don't add too much sugar, just enough to take out the tartness. But you can make as sweet as you want.
6
If the berries are a little soupy you can make a slurry with flour or cornstarch and add to thicken it up.
7
Pour the berries over the crust. Lay the remaining strips of pie dough on top. You can do a lattice type topping or just lay pieces to partially cover in a scattered way. Sprinkle top with sugar if desired.
8
Bake in preheated oven at 325 for about 40 minutes. Cobbler is done when bubbling and crust pieces are golden. (Place on a cookie sheet to avoid spillover in the oven.)
9
Let cool, cut and serve with a nice dollup of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
