They key to a great cobbler is balance. Starting with the blackberry compote, you need to find the right ratio between lemon juice, cinnamon, and sugar, so that they complement the fruit without overpowering its delicate flavor. Then there's the dough, which should be flaky and light, like a cloud resting on top of the blackberries.
Luckily, cobblers require only a few easy steps and do not take very long to bake. Another great thing about this dessert is that it's extremy versatile — swap out the blackberries for whatever fruit is in season, and adjust the cinnamon for another complementary spice (like ginger if you're using pears).
