Whew! Thank goodness we’re almost through February. This winter has seemed exceptionally long. All the gray, short days and cold weather have me pining for spring and summer and thinking about my favorite warm weather recipes. Recipes like this blackberry cobbler. It’s a family favorite around here, and it’s so full of sweet, juicy goodness that I almost never have leftovers. While I’m enduring the cold weather of this winter, I’m sharing some warm weather eats to help us all remember that warmer weather is coming, and so are delicious recipes!

This blackberry cobbler is one of my favorite fruit desserts to make when spring and summer roll around. It’s just so full of the flavors of the warm weather season. It all starts with a simple but delicious filling of fresh blackberries, sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch. That’s it, and that’s all it needs. Then, we top it with a sweet, simple flour and brown sugar topping that becomes almost biscuit-like when it’s all said and done. It’s so fresh, so sweet, and so delicious.
