Prep Time 5 mins
Servings 8-10 depending on the size slices
For the Crust:
2 cups of all purpose flour
12 tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup of ice water
For the Cobbler
3 cups of blackberries cleaned
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 Tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups water
Instructions for the Cobbler Crust:
Step 1: Chill mixing bowl and pastry cutter in the freezer for about 15 minutes prior to making the crust.
Step 2: Cut the butter for the crust into the flour with a pastry cutter. Slowly incorporate ice water just until the dough begins to form.
Step 3: Pour dough onto parchment paper, divide into two circle that you will flatten into 2 discs. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and placed in the freezer to chill prior to using.
Instructions for the Cobbler
Step 1: Combine blackberries, sugar, butter, and water in a heavy-bottomed pan.
Step 2: Bring to boil over medium heat and cook for 20 minutes. Berries will be soft when pressed against the side of the pan with a spoon. The blackberry mixture will also begin to thicken and become syrupy.
Step 3: Preheat oven to 425º F.
Step 4: Remove pastry discs for cobbler crust from the freezer and roll. Cut 1/2" strips in both portions of the dough. One half will go into the blackberry mixture for dumplings. The second set of strips will go on top.
Step 5: In one half of the dough, cut strips again to form individual pieces for dumplings.
Step 6: Drop the dough pieces into boiling blackberries and occasionally stir gently to make sure all dumplings are cooked, about 7 minutes.
Step 7: Remove cobbler pan from heat and place the second half of the dough in a lattice pattern on top of the blackberries. Place pieces of butter on top of the lattice crust and sprinkle with sugar.
Step 8: Place into oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
Step 9: Remove from oven and allow it to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
Enjoy as it is delicious!
