Casserole Dessert Recipe: Sweet Blackberry Cobbler

We are not picky about our fruit desserts: tarts, pies, crisps, crumblesÖwe love all of them! A cobbler is a nice choice because of itís biscuit-like topping that goes so nicely with the sweet and tart fruit bubbling away beneath it, soaking in all its yummy juices. A little more thought goes into this dessert than that of a typical crisp, but when you see and bite into the cobbled-together crust (cobbler, ha!), itíll all be worth it!
