With the abundance of blackberries here this year when I saw this recipe I had to give it a try. The crust creates a dumpling like topping which works out very well. You can really create the amount of servings you want by the number of dumplings. I used 1 dumpling per serving with the black berry filling. Blackberry Cobbler Recipe is simple to make with not a lot of prep time. This a very good recipe-if you have fresh blackberries on hand your family will love it.

We have had a great year for berries here in Upper Michigan. Hot weather for most days and rain about one day a week. Our blueberry, raspberry and blackberry plants producing just an unreal amount of berries. I love homemade ice cream. This Blackberry Ice Cream Recipe was a great way to use some of the fresh berries. A beautiful color with a fresh delicious blackberry flavor. It is a simple recipe. Most of the time is used letting the ice cream mixture cool before putting it in the ice cream machine.
I have a small ice cream machine. My only regret was it was not big enough to double the recipe. Enjoy
