  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/4 cup boiling water just until mixture is evenly moist.
  3. In a separate bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in cold water. Mix in remaining 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, and blackberries. Transfer to a cast iron skillet, and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Drop dough into the skillet by spoonfuls. Place skillet on the foil lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until dough is golden brown.

This recipe isn't rated 5 stars for nothing, it's excellent! But, a few changes could be made. You either have to increase the dough or decrease the pan size. I used a 8 x 8 baking pan and th...

Excellent! With family stretched across 5 southern states cobbler is a tradition, and this recipe certainly rates as good as, if not better than, most family recipes (don't tell Grandma). Both...

If you're deciding whether to make this or not, MAKE IT! This is by far the best cobbler I've ever made. If you have an iron skillet that's definitely the way to go. I doubled the topping recipe...

This is an excellent recipe and adapts well to changes. I used frozen mixed berries from Costco - and listened to others and made 1.5 times the topping. Excellent. I don't have the pan suggested...

This was good but WAY too sweet. I made it a second time using only 1/2 cup sugar in the fruit mixture and it was PERFECT. Yummy--thank you!

Every summer my husband an youngest son go blackberry picking and I always make the same cobbler recipe which everyone likes. This year I decided to try this recipe and we just loved it! My husb...

LOVED it! I used blueberries and peaches instead and boiled it in a pot and then transfered it to a pyrex dish - b/c i don't have a cast iron skillet. It was perfect.

I cut the recipe in half for 2 of us--I have my own backyard blackberries- this is an easy and tasty recipe - I will make again. I also used splenda and still very good.
