How to make it

  • 1. Prepare pie crust recipe, roll out and cut into strips, (about 1inch wide, 13 inches long) to form lattice, (doesn't have to be exact!)
  • 2. Grease a 9 x 13 pan (aluminum works best)
  • 3. Heat oven to 400 degrees
  • 4. Place strips of pie crust in bottom of pan in lattice pattern
  • 5. Pour 2 cups Blackberries mixed with either 1-1/2 or 2 cups sugar
  • 6. over lattice bottom crust
  • 7. Dot heavily with butter
  • 8. Cover with more strips of pie crust in lattice pattern on top of blackberries and sugar
  • 9. Place in oven until lightly browned this takes 30 minutes if the rack is in the middle of the oven. Temp reading 350.
  • 10. Then pour 2 cups boiling water over cobbler and return to oven until juice begins to thicken. Time for this is 15 minutes.
  • 11. NOTE: This is a very old family recipe. Don't believe a 9 x 13 glass dish existed when this was first made! However, if an aluminum pan is unavailable, a glass dish will work. Of course, the aluminum browns so much better.
  • 12. This cobbler cries out for vanilla ice cream. It is mighty good!

  • 14. From JJ:
  • 15. I love pie crust when it’s gooey and this recipe begged for at least 3 of the refrigerated rolls, although they come two to a pack. I think it would be interesting to put a full layer of crust on the bottom, and then berries mixed with sugar and butter, a full lattice work of strips, another layer of berries and sugar and butter, and then a full lattice work of crust. This recipe when cooled is only about ½ + tall. I think two layers would be purely decadent and would increase by 5 minutes first cooking time to 35 minutes. I might increase water by ½ cup. Pouring water on this cobbler was the hardest thing to do, just seemed so odd. But it sure worked. She has a great recipe!
  • 16. I found if I put the berries in the large blue bowl and then poured on the 1 ½ cups of sugar I could flip the berries around and get them evenly coated with the sugar (see close-up pic). This way I never broke any berries using a spoon to mix and they were all evenly coated. By the time I had the lattice work done, the sugar had already started working magic and juice was forming, so when I spooned out the mixture it was perfect.

    I made this a while back and it was delicious. I did put a solid layer of crust on the bottom JJ. It worked great. I like the gooey crust too.

    Yes. Of course I meant my grandmother. Didn't mean to imply that other grandmothers had disgusting habbits in the privacy of their own home. ;@)~~~~~~~~~~

    I used puff pastry for the latticework when I made this. I was fortunate to get one sample piece of this cobbler. It's disgusting to see your grandmother bread-sop and lick the dish to get at every flavorful morsel.

    Thank rosemaryblue also, its her recipe, I just cook and take pics. But it is fun when recipes bring back memories. My fried hot dog sandwich did the same thing for others. Glad to hear from you. JJ
