Blackberry Cobbler

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).

Ingredients

  • 3 cups blackberries, rinsed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, chilled and cut into chunks
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk

Directions

Mix together the blackberries, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, and cornstarch in a bowl and let it sit for half an hour. 

Preheat the oven the 350 degrees. In another bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut the butter into the mixture, using 2 knives or a dough blender — the dough should begin to form into crumbs. Stir in the egg and milk until everything is combined and the dough is uniform throughout. 

Transfer the berries to an 8-inch round baking pan and spoon the dough on top. Bake the cobbler for 30 minutes, or until the fruit is bubbly and the dough starts to brown on top. Serve immediately. 

Blackberry Cobbler Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Blackberry Cobbler Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
