Now I like the strange and unusual when it comes to things. And when I read this recipe, I had to do a double take cause I was wondering to myself, "What the hell is a blackberry doobie?",lol. But this is another good recipe from Mrs. LaBelle. You can use blueberries or a combo of berries but not strawberries. Plus you can also use frozen berries as well with this recipe.
