I know you are thinking, why am I posting a recipe for blackberries, a summer berry.  Well, we love blackberries and eat them throughout the year.  I missed the window for posting the recipe this summer and thought, why not.  

When I was young and newly married blackberries were only in the grocery stores and better yet on the vines during blackberry season in the summer.  Produce these days have changed so much.  We see blackberries year round in the grocery store and farmer's markets.

You have probably seen other dumpling cobblers on the blog, Apple Dumpling Cobbler, Pear Dumpling Cobbler, Peach Dumpling Cobbler.  It is our favorite method of making a cobbler.  

We are big on lost of tender, buttery dough and a sugary crust that the dumpling cobblers tend to give.  

Also, all the lovely juices rendered from the fruit. Not to mention the three cups of butter, sugar, vanilla, and water solution that is poured over the whole cobbler once it is crafted.

Now you see why we love dumpling cobbler so much.  And why I am posting the recipe in October.

HOW TO MAKE BLACKBERRY DUMPLING COBBLER

  • Divide the dough into thirds. Roll one third of the dough on a lightly floured surface with a rolling pin large enough to place into a large oblong dish push the dough up the sides. Place 1/2 of the blackberries across the dough.  Sprinkle 1 cup of sugar evenly across the blackberries.

  • Roll one third of the dough on a lightly floured surface with a rolling pin large enough to place into a large oblong dish. Place the dough over the blackberries.  Place the rest of the blackberries across the dough.  Sprinkle with 1 cup of sugar evenly across the blackberries.

  • Roll the last third of the dough on a lightly floured surface and cut 1/2 inch strips and place a row going lengthwise 1/2 inch apart on top of the blackberries. Place another row of strips going the opposite direction horizontally 1/2 inch apart.

  • In a large saucepan, heat, sugar, butter, and water over medium heat until butter melts. Do not boil.   Pour over the blackberries in the prepared dish.

  • Sprinkle coarse sugar evenly over dough. Bake for 1 hour.

  • Fresh or frozen blackberries may be used.  If using the frozen blackberries, do not thaw before using.  Reduce the water by a 1/2 cup when pouring over the cobbler.

We love this cobbler so much we make it throughout the year.  And it is a must for holidays and family gatherings.  

I hope you will get to make the Blackberry Dumpling Cobbler soon.

Enjoy!
