Fresh baked blackberry pie. There’s nothing like it! It’s one of the few things that takes me back to my childhood. My grandmother always baked them for dessert on Thanksgiving and Christmas every year. And I looked forward to it always. Last week I wrote about my Turnbull Family traditions and following in my grandma’s footsteps. Learning how to make Blackberry pie is one of my favorite things she has taught me. It is a skill that is linked to so many of my childhood memories. And I look forward to sharing that tradition with my Baby Girl when she gets older.
But there is just one thing about making homemade pies – it takes a whole lot of work. And it can be downright messy. It seems like not such a big deal around the holidays, because we are whipping up so many things. If you are looking to just make dessert for one evening and very few people, it doesn’t seem worth the all the trouble. But I am happy to report that I have found a solution to my dilemma. A friend of mine gave me this recipe, and I felt that I should share it with all of you. It is just too delicious to keep to myself. It is a super simple recipe for the most divine Blackberry Cobbler. That’s right, we can now have a Blackberries for dessert any night of the week. Or, if you’re bad like me, breakfast on any morning. Some people eat breakfast for dinner, but I like dessert for breakfast instead. Side note – that’s not something I plan to pass on to my children. It’s a terrible habit I picked up a long time ago.
So here it is, my gift to all of you – an easy 5 ingredient recipe for a Blackberry Cobbler. Try it. I promise you will love it. I recommend using frozen blackberries, that way you can have it anytime. No paying high prices or waiting for them to be in season. I promise it will change your life. It changed mine. It’s been permanently added to my Garcia Family Cookbook. Enjoy!

Place your stick of butter in the microwave for 30 seconds until melted.
Add melted butter to your Sugar mixture. Mix until combined.
