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?

How to Make Blackberry Cobbler

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.
