This delicious blackberry cobbler recipe is made with fresh blackberries and a cobbler topping, then topped with a scrumptious brown sugar pecan crust for the best blackberry cobbler you will ever make.
Blackberry cobbler is one of my favorite desserts to make. When berries are in season and bursting with flavor, there’s nothing better than adding them to a cobbler for a sweet, delicious dessert. I used to help my grandmother and my mother make blackberry cobbler, and now I make my own. I’ve been making this particular recipe for a long time. I started changing things up a bit ago to add a little twist to my cobblers. That’s when I started adding the brown sugar pecan crust that makes this dessert so absolutely fantastic. And bonus: it’s super easy to make, too!

This recipe starts with juicy ripe blackberries mixed with sugar and a few other ingredients. Next, it’s topped with a cobbler batter that has all the classic taste and texture that we love in the recipe.
