Blackberry Cobbler

Since we are busy moms, just use a store-bought crust. Actually use 2. If you make your own crust-we don't want to hear about it (just joking.) This is delicious for dessert after Sunday lunch. For a special treat, serve with cool whip or vanilla ice cream. Wait 3 hours, then go have a nice jog!
3 c blackberries
1 c sugar
3 T flour
1 T grated orange or lemon peel
4 T butter
2 regular pie crusts
Combine flour, sugar and lemon or orange peel in a large bowl. Stir well. Add berries. Dot bottom crust with 2 T butter. Add filling. Add top crust pinching around edges to seal. Poke a few holes in top crust. Dot with 2 T butter. Cook at 400 for 15 minutes. Then reduce heat to 325 and bake for about 30 more minutes.
*To make your own whipped cream: Chill a glass or stainless steel mixing bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes. Add 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 1/8 cup sugar. Using a hand mixer set on high, whip the cream for 4-5 minutes or until it is the texture you like. Serve immediately. We love this with just fresh peaches or strawberries.

Isn't summertime so nice when you're able to pluck dinner and dessert from your backyard! My daughter and I have been hiking alot lately so she can snack on blackberries. Yum! Plus, we also made a cobbler for the 4th with our extra pickings that she didn't devour! LOL

Yes, we go to the fruit and berry patch and pick. Next year I am going to pick more blckberries so we can make more jam than this year. Thanks for reading.
