Grandma's Blackberry Cobbler

It's almost berry time and this is one of my favorite recipes handed down from my grandmother. When picking the berries, I still use the basket she used so many years ago. It holds just slightly over 1-1/2 lbs. of berries.



  • 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening (she used lard)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, (saved from making butter)
  • 1-1/3 cups flour


  • 1-1/2 lb. blackberries
  • 1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3-1/2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1-1/3 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 2-1/2 tsp. granulated sugar


Mix all filling ingredients and put into prepared pan.

For top crust: Mix sugar, baking powder, salt, shortening, buttermilk and 3/4 cup of flour to form a sticky dough. Spread remaining flour on a work surface and knead dough until most of the flour is incorporated and dough is manageable. Roll dough to about 1/4-inch thickness and cut into large pieces. Cover blackberry filling with dough, overlapping pieces, patchwork style.


Drizzle melted butter over dough and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until crust is golden-brown and filling is bubbly, about 50 minutes. Top with a scoop of ice cream or a whipped topping.
