Ree’s Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberry Cobbler

My grandmother grows blackberries because of all the health benefits they hold within them. And she grows lots of blackberries. Each summer her plants blossom in all their glory, and she spends a great deal of time talking about the time it takes to just pick the darned things. The plants are beautiful, and my grandma has much more than she could ever do with them each year. There’s just one problem. My grandma doesn’t like blackberries. She finds them too seedy and just not tasty enough to be worthwhile. So she sprinkles what she needs to reap those health benefits onto ice cream, and gives much of the rest away to family (namely, me, my sister, and my mom.)

But there’s a problem with that, too. No one in my family except for my daughter Paige is that crazy about blackberries; and we don’t often know what to do with the abundance we have. So, we’re constantly looking for things to do with them. So far I’ve found my Poisoned Blackberry Cocktail, and now Ree Drummond’s Blackberry Cobbler. This one’s so super easy, and I can’t thank The Pioneer Woman enough for showing it to me. I’m putting this one up for my sister, but I think this may be dessert around these parts tonight, too.

1/2 cup butter, melted $0.45
1 cup sugar, plus 1/4 cup $0.23
1 cup flour $0.14
1 cup milk $0.28
2 cups blackberries (doesn’t matter if they’re frozen or fresh) $5.00

Total Cost $6.10

1.) Butter a round or square 9″ baking dish and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.) In a large mixing bowl combine 1 cup of the sugar and all of the flour in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the milk until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Add melted butter and mix once again.

3.) Rinse the blackberries and pat them dry.

4.) Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish and sprinkle blackberries right over top. Sprinkle on the 1.4 cup of sugar.

5.) Place in the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour, until the cobbler is golden and bubbly. To make it extra crunchy on top, sprinkle on an extra tablespoon of sugar over the entire cobbler 10 minutes before the cobbler is finished.

6.) Remove from oven, allow to cool for just a few minutes, and then scoop it into bowls or cut into squares.

7.) Serve and enjoy!
