Blackberry Cobbler

One of my favorite go to desserts is cobblers.  You can make them year round with seasonal fruits, frozen fruits or canned fruit.  There are so many different toppings you can use, from a crumb topping to a pie crust or a biscuit topping, it is a easy dessert that takes no time putting together.

My favorite cobbler is Boysenberry but I have found it very hard to find boysenberries in any form here in Utah, instead I went with my next favorite the Blackberry.

Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberry Filling

1/3 cup Grand Marnier
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 16oz bags frozen blackberries


4 cups Bisquick
8 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup white chocolate, chopped
1 cup milk
6 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Butter the bottom and sides of a baking dish. In a large sauce pan over medium low heat add Grand Marnier and butter.  While the butter is melting dissolve the cornstarch in the water.  Add water mixture to sauce pan, add the sugar and cinnamon.  Stir for 2 minutes and add blackberries.  Turn the heat to a medium high setting and occasionally stirring until it just starts to come to a boil.

In a large bowl add Bisquick, sugar, white chocolate; mix together.  Add milk and melted butter; incorporate into the dry mixture.  Pour the berry mixture into the baking dish.  Gently pat out the topping to fit the top of the baking dish. If you want you can do this in sections.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until topping is set and starts to brown, top with ice cream; serve hot or cold.
