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

I prepared this dumpling cobbler for the first time this holiday. It was wonderful. I added multi fruit.....blueberries, blackberries, cherries, and raspberries. My entire family loved it and I would prepare it again. I did take the suggestion to add and extra 1/2 cup of oats and I'm glad I did. I only wished I opted for the suggestion to use a deep dish casserole dish because it did overflow into my oven while baking.
Truly, this recipe has become a family favorite; I make it at each family gathering. Its also quite simple to subsitute seasonal fruits. A 1/2 cup more oats can be used successfully as well.
I have only two cautions: this recipe serves a LOT of people, and is quite heavy--be sure to use a deep, sturdy baking dish. Can you tell I am speaking from personal experience? Enjoy!
