My Dad is so great. He helps out friends of his who have a farm in Springfield TN and puts so much blood, sweat, and old fashioned hard work just so he can bring home fresh produce and share with friends and family. There is not much reward monetarily. He really is such an inspiration to me the way he works so hard and his commitment to help people. Anyway they have blackberries there, TONS of blackberries and right before he planted them at the farm he planted 3 plants in my backyard for my little family. The first year we got nothing. The second a couple quarts, enough to have on our cereal in the morning and a good little snack. Now, we have tons and tons of blackberries. They went absolutely crazy this year. They are huge, almost the size of crab apples, so juicy and tender all you have to do it put it in your mouth – no chewing necessary. I guess it’s the variety, thorn-less, one grows like a vine so I have them wrapped around my deck. All Hannah has do to is go out pick some berries wash them and boom she has a snack. I am getting blackberries from the farm and from my backyard we have so much! It’s really pretty wonderful.
So, what am I going to do with all those blackberries? Not let them got to waste that’s for sure. Raise your hand if you LOVE Pioneer Women! If you haven’t stop what you’re doing AFTER you’ve read my blog and check out her blog http://thepioneerwoman.com/. She is truly amazing and many of my recipes have come from her. When I follow recipes I have a bad habit of making it my own. There are so many versions of cobbler and after making this particular one I have decided I don’t like the biscuit kind just too dry and some of them can get kinda tough. Many people do like them and I used to as a kid but just not for me after I’ve had this one. This is more of a shortcake flavor, really easy and quick to prepare but patience is needed greatly when baking.
Here’s what you need
- 1 stick Butter
- 1-1/4 cup Sugar
- 1 cup Self-Rising Flour
- 1 cup Milk
- 2 cups Blackberries (frozen Or Fresh)
