How to Make The Pioneer Woman’s Blackberry Cobbler

Using Frozen Berries

  • Frozen berries work well in this recipe as well, be sure to add them when they’re frozen. If you let them thaw, they’ll be mushy and the consistency will be off.

Alternative Berry Options

  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches

or use a combination of several!

How to Store Leftover Cobbler

  • Baked Cobbler can be covered and stored at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Freezing Leftover Cobbler

  • This Cobbler can be frozen and it’s best if you do so after it’s been baked due to the leavening agent in the flour.
  • To reheat, let it thaw overnight and bake it in a covered oven-safe dish at 350° until heated through. The amount of time will depend on how much you’re heating.
  • You can also reheat in the microwave.

Best Pan Sizes For This Recipe

  • I use my trusty 9 x 13 inch pan for this recipe and it works perfectly.
  • A 9 x 9 inch pan would work well too.

What to Serve with Blackberry Cobbler

…Just kidding. I just want to see if you’re paying attention. The obvious answer is vanilla ice cream.

Should you choose to omit this very important addition, I will find you…ice cream in hand.
