Our Favorite Blackberry Cobbler

Summer is fresh berry season, and since it’s quickly approaching I decided to post this blackberry cobbler recipe. My husband loves blackberry cobbler. So when the berries start coming in the cast iron gets heated up and cobbler starts being made! When I discovered this recipe we thought we had died and gone to heaven! It is always a family favorite, and so simple and easy to make. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Blackberry Cobbler.

*Tip –  A cast iron skillet really is key in this recipe. Somehow it just doesn’t turn out the same in a regular skillet.
