Be still, my heart. We love the Pioneer Woman’s blackberry cobbler so much, it’s a spring/summertime staple in our house. And as someone who isn’t great at baking, this recipe is so simple, (only 5 ingredients!) and foolproof. Perfect every time, (especially with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream). I’ll warn you once: the serving size for this is 6-8 servings, but in reality it serves two people who can’t stop sneaking bites of the crispy, chewy crust straight out of the pan at all hours of the night.
This recipe is from her very first cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks, one of my absolute favorites. Such a classic, and so simple to remember!
1 stick of butter
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of self-rising flour
1 cup of milk
1 pint of blackberries
And 1 whole tub of good vanilla ice cream. do I sound like Ina Garten? GOOD vanilla ice cream, people, (just kidding, but we do LOVE Blue Bell ice cream for this very occasion).
Oh, and it’s blackberry season! Get ’em while they’re cheap and delicious!
