Blackberry Cobbler

Last summer, a friend of mine brought me a few bags of blackberries picked at her parents home.  While I love the flavor of the berries, I’ve never been a huge fan because of the little seeds in them, but my husband loves them!  In fact, I usually have homemade blackberry jelly in the pantry just for him.  With these berries, I made a cobbler last summer and then put the rest in the freezer.

Just this past weekend when my husband had one of those cravings for “something sweet” about 9:00 at night, I remembered the blackberries and decided to make this quick dessert.  (Yes, I have a very spoiled husband.  Stay tuned for more about that)!  This cobbler is super easy to make.  Be sure to have some vanilla ice cream on hand to scoop on top!
