Cobbler Competition

If you have a cobbler recipe that I should have, do share. I'll make it, I promise. I love cobbler!

I have two recipes currently battling it out for first place. One is on the Pioneer Woman's website (Blackberry Cobbler #2) which I've made a few times and think it's pretty fantastic. It's a lot lighter than the one below because there are less fatty ingredients.
This is the one I made last night:
Blackberry Cobbler
1 pkg store bought pie crust (should include two crusts)
2 cups berries (I used 3) (well drained)
1 & 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 & 1/2 sticks real butter
1/4 cup heavy cream.
Put pie crust in the bottom of an iron skillet. (Yea, I forgot to mention I got a cast iron skillet at the flea market! Sure came in handy for this recipe!)
Add berries and spread 1 cup sugar over top. Sprinkle 1/2 cup flour over sugar. Cut up 1 stick of butter & place pieces on top of flour. Drizzle cream over all of this. Put second pie crust on top and close edges. Cover top with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 stick butter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour & 30 minutes (I only cooked mine 1hr 10min so just watch it that last 30 minutes.)

    My O My does that look good. The butter and cream and sugar would make anything good. It looks so beautiful too. I used to cook that way but must watch much closer now. I take bisquick add milk to make a soft dough. Heat berries with Splender and drop into berries that I heat in water till boiling. Sprinkle with just a tablespoon of real sugar. and a little melted margrine then pour into a baking dish and bake till brown and bubbley. Don't try this after your beautiful pie. I just have to make mine the way we eat now. It is not always as good as the real thing.

  4. I was just about to try the dumpling version tonight. I'll let you know how it turns out. That extra cup of berries really made it ooze out extra juicy - YUM!
