    This is a winner for sure! I made it with freshly picked blackberries but only had 2 cups at the time so I added 2 cups of blueberries and it was delish!! I will definitely be making this again. I think it would be good with any kind of berries. Have some fresh blackberries that I froze for later use and will be pulling this out of the recipe bag in the middle of Winter. Yum! Would make this for a special occasion.

    This was outrageously good and very, very easy to make. I used a carton of fresh blackberries from the farmer's market and sprinkled them with a little extra sugar before adding the topping. Served with vanilla ice cream, it's just scrumptious. This is my new go-to cobbler recipe.

    This was wonderful. My family loves it. I will definitely be making this again.

    super easy and super delicious! The only thing I would change would be to cut the butter down to 4 tablespoons, it pooled a bit on the top and I don't think you would miss it, and it would cut the fat content down a bit.

    Easy and delicious - what's not to love??? Served warm with vanilla ice cream.

    Elegant, easy, delicious. What a great dessert. I would just add a little sugar to the berries. Did not have it with the whipped creme, will try it with the creme next time.

    This is a delicous cobbler topping that can be used with any fruit. I liked it because the topping was crunchy and flavorful and the fruit doens't end up too sweet. Delicious.

    Wonderful! I used fresh berries and I did add a lot of sugar to them. I doubled the recipe and put it in a 9X13. I will make again...so easy!

    I have tried to make blackberry cobbler in the past and when I saw this recipe on the cover of Southern Living I knew it was for me. I have served this many times and everyone always loves it. This is now my favorite recipe. I pick my blackberrys in the summer and freeze them in 4 cups individually so they are ready to use.

  • tkirkland Posted: 12/14/09

    I've made this twice so far and it's been delicious both times, served warm over vanilla bean ice cream. One suggestion I would make is to cook it 35-40 minutes, then broil it for 3 minutes or so to get the topping nice and golden. At least for me, the topping never seems quite ready otherwise, and cooking it for longer results in the berry juices attempting a coup d'etat on the topping's territory. Bon appetit!

    Great topping - I used 1 drained canned blackberries and 1 drained canned bluberries because they are always in the cupboard and it was fabulous. Talk about easy!

  • dezlorelle Posted: 05/27/10

    I don't think I used enough butter, because I couldn't get my topping fully wet with the butter drizzled on top. Other than a few dry bits of topping, it was very tasty. I used half sugar, half splenda and light butter and it still tasted great, but with much better nutritional stats.

  • palevans Posted: 09/20/09

    this is wonderful. I used frozen blackberries, sweetened with sugar and doubled the recipe for a 9X13 pan - my cobbler took a little longer cooking (berries were thawed) I just took it out of the oven when it was brown on top. AS OTHERS COMMENTED - My company loved it! Whipped cream was just right after a big meal.

    I can't believe this recipe has so many 5-star reviews. It was just ok. It was easy, but I wasn't impressed with the results. There are much better recipes out there (see 'Blackberry Dumpling Cobbler.')

    My husband and I loved this recipe. It was delicious. I did sprinkle a little sugar on the berries. I will definitely be making this again.

    I HAVENT TRIED IT YET, BUT IT LOOKS GOOD! I MADE IT WITH CHATTER CHICKEN CHAMPS, AND WE GOT OUR HANDS A LITTLE MESSY, BUT IT FELT NICE AND SOOTHING ON MY FINGERTIPS.

    Used this recipe with mixed berries and because we're in the desert our fruit isn't very sweet so I added 1/4cup of sugar with the lemon juice. Everyone raved and wanted seconds. Truly Yummy.

  • HeatherL Posted: 06/06/11

    So yummy and so easy! I reduce the amount of butter/margarine by almost half. Made it for the umpteenth time last weekend but I used blueberries instead of blackberries. I think I like it even better that way!

  • TiffanyDow Posted: 06/07/11

    I had never made blackberry cobbler (only peach) so I looked this up and decided to try it. Took me about 5 minutes to plop it in the oven. SO easy! And although I did see a little pool of margarine on top, it didn't bother me. LOL! It tastes so sweet and yummy. And because it's so easy I'll be bookmarking it and making it often - want to try blueberries next time!

  • Rachel7984 Posted: 08/14/11

    I just made this wonderful recipe its so easy which is my favorite part other then it taste so yummy! The only thing I did different was sprinkle sugar on top of blackberries and cooked a little longer to brown the top. One other thing I might try next time is make more crust because that is my favorite part! Thanks!

    I just made this with blackberries and raspberries for July 4th. Since I wanted something that didn't require much prep time, this fit the bill. I did add some sugar and flour to the berries for sweetening and thickening, and I added a pinch of salt to the topping mix since most recipes call for some. Ended up baking this a few minutes longer so the top would get nice and brown. This was delicious with whipped cream on top. And the topping got nice and crunchy. My family loved it. I will try this with apples next and add some cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and brown sugar to the fruit. I seldom bake because I absolutely hate tedious recipes. This was just my speed! Definitely a keeper!

    This LOOKS like an outstanding recipe, but I am confused. I have read and re-read DawniFufu's comment from 8/2010 and do not understand it. Chatter Chicken Champs? Is that a local butter or margarine somewhere (...soothing on my fingertips...)? Does anyone know??

  • Peggspark Posted: 06/23/12

    This was a very delicious and simple recipe. My family enjoyed it. If I would do anything different it would be to toss the blackberries with sugar before putting into baking dish and to broil for 1 minute on low after baking to crisp up topping, as the butter did pool on top as one reviewer said.

  • duperroir Posted: 12/31/12

    This is an awesome receipe. I made it for my husband as it is his favorite; he was so complementry i had to have some myself ... and he was right. Well deserving of five stars.

    One of the easiest Blackberry Cobbler recipes you'll ever make. And so good. The recipe works with fresh peaches too! Like other reviewers, I added a bit of sugar to the berries before adding the topping.

    My boyfriend isn't a huge sweet fan, but he loves blackberry cobbler, so I promised him months ago that I would make it for him. I searched so many pages of recipes online and decided after all of the wonderful reviews that I would try this one. It was REMARKABLE! It was so easy to make. I went ahead and followed the advice of some other reviewers and cut down the butter to only about 4 1/2 tablespoons, and I sprinkled the blackberries with sugar before placing them in the pan. I omitted the lemon juice due to the lack of it, and it turned out awesome. Thanks, Southern Living!

    This was really good! I used cupcakes paper holders though, which turned out great:) The only thing I will change next time is mixing the blackberrys into the 'dough'. Definately will make this again!

  • bocchet Posted: 09/17/13

    I can't possibly understand how this recipe can be rated 5 stars. Mixing egg in with flour and sugar does NOT make a course meal -- it makes a sticky mess. It would be much better to eliminate the egg completely and just mix the flour, sugar and butter together. Now this will make a proper coarse meal!

  • brighteyes8 Posted: 08/06/13

    This is both delicious and a huge return on a rather minimal work investment, thus meriting a 5-star rating. Used whole wheat pastry flour in place of AP and you couldn't tell the difference. Unlike other reviewers, I did *not* add additional sugar to the berries or mix the topping with the berries, nor did I think it needed it. I used a combination of sweet and tart berries and I did put in the tablespoon of lemon juice (which helps brighten the flavor), but with 1 whole cup of sugar in the topping, that was more than sufficient sweetness for me (and I am a sugar addict). The sweet crust contrasted with the semi-tart berries is lovely. However, the butter lake phenomenon is real. I combatted it by cooking for an extra 10 minutes (it may have been that long because some of my berries were still partially frozen at the start), until the lake vanished and the cobbler was crispy brown and bubbling all the way to the center. The broiler route others have suggested would probably work too.

    Loved this and have used this recipe for many years. Almost any fruit or berry works well in this. I have used blackberries, blueberries, apples and peaches, and all have turned out well. I have also used self rising flour which produced a crispy, biscuit-y like topping, which I liked even better.
