  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Toss the blackberries with 1 1/4 cups sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons flour in a mixing bowl. Spread into a 9x9-inch baking dish, and dot with 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter. In a separate bowl, whisk 1 1/2 cups flour together with baking powder, salt, and 2 tablespoons sugar. Cut in the softened butter until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Stir in the milk and egg until combined. Drop the batter over the berries by the spoonful.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fruit is tender and the topping is golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

Sorry but this did not turn out good. I followed the recipe without any changes including using a 9x9 pan. It baked for at least 30 minutes and the "biscuits" were still doughy underneath. The berries were absolute soup with no thickening at all. I won't be making this recipe again.

Very delicious! I'm not sure if the berries should have set up more or not, but it didn't matter. We had it warm with ice cream and it was heavenly.

This cobbler was exquisite. It has the perfect biscuit top layer, and the overall taste was just spot-on. I've tried other cobbler recipes on here trying to find the "ultimate" cobbler recipe, and this is definitely #1 to me.

This was excellent! My family, 2 boys 7 and 10 and my husband all enjoyed this very much. It is a definite repeat.

Best flavor of any blackberry cobbler I have ever make, and I have made many. Will be my go to recipe. I took some of the liquid while the recipe was still hot, before it cooled and set, and drizzled it on top. Pretty and tasty!

EXCELLENT!! My family loves blackberry cobbler and when I made this they all flipped. I altered it slightly - we used fresh blackberries and then reduced the sugar by 1/2 that you put on the blackberries and added 1 tsp. cinnamon. Yum!!
