When I was little my grandma used to make me blackberry cobbler, she would always make out the dough and then roll it out, cut it into strips and then put it on top of the blackberries in a lattice pattern. I have looked for the dough recipe since hers died with her. I don't know if it was a pie crust recipe or what but I would love to make one. So if you have a recipe would you mind sharing it with me? I make cobblers but the ones where you pour the batter on top and it sinks down, that is not what I am looking for. I think she would also dust the crust with sugar.

My grandmother made blackberry cobbler and sometimes used the strips.

I have a feeling she used leftover biscuit dough. This was on a farm during the Depression, with 5 kids. Pretty sure she didn't make a special dough.

I am last person to ask for a recipe for biscuits--I have a thread in the other Food forum about this. If you have a pie crust recipe that is good use that.

We used to pick the blackberries--they grew wild and were so good. They are pretty expensive in the grocery stores now. If you have a source for fresh blackberries you are fortunate. My grandmother made the best blackberry jam and jelly. I loved to smell it cooking and it tasted like summer on a piece of toast on a cold winter morning.
