Why You’ll Love This Recipe:

This recipe is incredibly easy to make, requiring just a few simple ingredients and steps. The combination of juicy blackberries, buttery crust, and sweet sugar creates a mouthwatering dessert that is perfect for any occasion. The cobbler bakes to perfection in a cast iron skillet, adding a rustic charm to the presentation.


  • 1 box of 2 refrigerated pie crusts (I prefer Pillsbury)
  • 2 (14-16 oz) bags frozen blackberries
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1⅓ cups sugar (for berries)
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¾ cup sugar (for crust)
  • ½ stick butter, cut into small cubes
  • ½ cup water


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Unroll one pie crust and place it in the bottom and up the sides of a 12” cast iron skillet.
  3. Pierce the bottom and sides of the crust with a fork.
  4. Bake for 7 minutes, then remove from the oven.
  5. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees.
  6. In a large bowl, mix melted butter, 1⅓ cups sugar, and flour.
  7. Add the blackberries to the bowl with the butter/sugar/flour mixture; toss until the berries are covered and the mixture is crumbly.
  8. Gently pour the berry mixture into the skillet and sprinkle water over the berries.
  9. Unroll the second pie crust over the top of the berries, sealing it at the edges of the skillet.
  10. Scatter the small pieces of butter on top of the crust.
  11. Sprinkle ¾ cups sugar on top of the crust.
  12. Cut tiny slits in the top of the pie crust.
  13. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until bubbly at the edges and beginning to brown on top.
  14. (I highly recommend using a pie shield to prevent the edges of the crust from burning.)


Store any leftover cobbler in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply place it in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10-15 minutes or until warmed through.

Recipe Tips:

  • Feel free to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream on top of each serving for an extra indulgent treat.
  • You can also try using fresh blackberries when they are in season for a slightly different flavor profile.
  • Experiment with different types of berries or a combination of berries to create your own unique cobbler variation.
