  1. COMBINE first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; gently stir in blackberries. Spoon into an 8-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle with orange juice. Set aside.
  2. COMBINE 1 cup flour and salt in a bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, evenly over mixture; stir with a fork just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. PRESS pastry gently into a 4-inch circle on heavy-duty plastic wrap, and cover with additional plastic wrap. Roll pastry, still covered, into a 9-inch square; chill 10 minutes or until plastic wrap can be easily removed.
  4. REMOVE top sheet of plastic wrap, and cut pastry into 9 (1-inch) strips. Arrange pastry strips over blackberry mixture in a crisscross pattern.
  5. COAT with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. Bake at 425 degrees for 35 minutes or until pastry is golden.

Wonderful, wonderful! This was what I had been looking for. I used a ready made crust and used half blackberries and half blueberries.

Very skimpy on the crust. The flavor of the spices and orange was pleasant, but made the filling too juicy.

this was awesome! My husband took it to his office and it was gone in an hour! I did nothave enough blackberries so I added strawberries to make up the 8 cups. It was fabulous. I highly reco...

This was the perfect blackberry cobbler. I cooked it for the exact ammount of time given and it tasted soooo good! Instead of all spice, I added extra cinnamon, and instead of orange juice, I u...

I definitely think this recipe could stand less orange juice, or more flour, to decrease the runny-ness. But overall very tasty, just not the normal cobbler consistancy.
