This is one dish that will have people wagging their tongues for more. If you take it to a 4th of July picnic, get ready for the fireworks!
Yes, I have reformed myself on sugar, but that doesn’t mean I can’t share the MOST WONDERFUL COBBLER in the WORLD with you who could eat it!
WARNING: This food could and probably will become addictive. You may dream about it. You may have visions in your waking hours about it. It may even hunt you down in the middle of a sweet daydream!
Blackberry Cobbler from page 178 of the 1976 edition of the Betty Crocker Cookbook:)…with Miss Debbie’s edits:)
1 cup sugar
4 cups fresh blackberries (I use the one’s frozen in the bag from the freezer section and they work fine)
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. almond extract
3 T. butter – cut in small pieces
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Put frozen blackberries in bowl. Pour sugar and flour over them. Add lemon juice, salt and almond extract. Mix thoroughly. Put in pie plate or shallow pan….spread pieces of butter over the blackberry mixture. Top with a Pillsbury Pie Crust (the kind in the red box:) – there are 2 pie crusts per box but you only need one – unroll the pie crust and lay on top of the blackberry mixture and tuck it in around the edges….intended to look more rustic than picture perfect pie crust. Brush milk lightly over top of crust.
Take a sharp knife and make slits in top of crust. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour ….depending on how brown you like it.
P.S. You could probably substitute any fruit you want, but man, if you like blackberries…. oh my!
