Making up for last year

The blackberries are going gang-busters!  Last year the late freeze left us with about 5-6 blackberries total.   This year there are more on a single site than that. Look at this…

A couple have a hint of blush – so it won’t be long!

I bought some blackberries at the Nashville farmer’s market last Saturday and made a cobbler for MIL, who loves cobbler.  This was an awesome recipe from ‘Country Baking’ (perhaps this book?) found at All about Food – the blackberry mixture is thick and stays separate from the dough which remains on the top.  We used 1/2 splenda because FIL is diabetic.  The recipe is below – I forgot to take a picture 😦 , but is was YUMMY!
