Total time: 40 minutes | Serves 4 to 6
  • 4 cups blackberries
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup butter, diced
  • 1 cup half-and-half

Step 1Heat the oven to 425 degrees.

Step 2Place the blackberries in a deep-dish pie plate (at least 3 inches deep). A deep pie dish will prevent the berry juices from overflowing in the oven. Sprinkle the berries with 1/2 cup of the sugar.

Step 3Combine the flour, baking powder and 1/4 cup of the sugar in a bowl. With your fingertips, blend in the butter completely. Stir in the half-and-half, being careful not to over-mix. Spoon the topping over the berries, not quite covering completely. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar.

Step 4Bake until golden brown on top, 30 minutes. Cool the cobbler on a wire rack.
