Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    A basic Blackberry Cobbler dough, which is like a drop biscuit, should be mixed with a light hand so it will rise up through the berry mixture and have a light texture. Mix just until the dry ingredients are moistened.
  • tip 2
    For this Blackberry Cobbler recipe, try adding 1/2 teaspoon of a warm baking spice—cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg or cardamom—to the cobbler dry ingredients for an aromatic edge. You can also stir a teaspoon of pure vanilla into the berries to enhance their natural sweetness.
  • tip 3
    Summer berries can take a basic cobbler beyond an everyday dessert. For a twist try our Blackberry Cobbler and crisp recipes, and add raspberries to the blackberries for a different flavor combination.
  • tip 4
    Try mixing grated lemon or lime zest in with the fruit before baking for a fresh flavor twist.

More About This Recipe

  • Some food historians say that the term “cobbler” came from Westward-heading Americans who “cobbled” together this fruit dessert in Dutch ovens and cooked it over open campfires. Another story says it was named for the way the baked dough on the top of the dessert looks just like a cobblestone street. No matter the origins of its name there’s no denying that blackberry cobbler is a delicious dessert. Cobbler has been a home cook favorite for so long that variations of the dish (see Betty's Best Blackberry Crisp and Cobbler Recipes to see our top picks!) are known by a number of different names all across the country, including grunts, pandowdy and slumps in New England, or the whimsically named sonker, a deep-dish cobbler found in North Carolina.
