Blackberry Dumpling Cobbler

Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 5 mins
Bake time 35 mins
Yield Makes 12 servings
This is just as tasty prepared with frozen peaches or cherries. Serve with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and a sprig of fresh mint.


  • 2 (16-oz.) packages frozen blackberries
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 (8-oz.) packages 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose baking mix
  • 3/4 cup uncooked oats

How to Make It

  1. Bring blackberries, 1 1/3 cups sugar, and butter to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring gently until butter is melted and sugar dissolves; remove blackberry mixture from heat.

  2. Beat cream cheese and remaining 2/3 cup sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy; add 2/3 cup milk, and beat until smooth. Stir in baking mix and uncooked oats. Spread two-thirds of the cream cheese mixture (about 3 cups) onto bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish; spoon blackberry mixture evenly over cream cheese mixture. Dollop remaining cream cheese mixture evenly over blackberry mixture.

  3. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
