Sure you think about cobblers at the end of summer when you are overflowing with fresh fruit and berries but what about a winter cobbler after you’ve carefully preserved the overflow of summer’s bounty? YES PLEASE!!! Saving some of summer’s goodness to enjoy in fall and winter is one of my favorite things to do because when I’m cold and missing the sun a good berry cobbler warms me right up and reminds me that each season has it’s own flavors and joys to be enjoyed.
So if you’re having a snow day like we are here in Oregon or you just want to spice up your Thursday, this Blackberry Winter Cobbler is for you! Not overly sweet this semi-tart cobbler lets the flavor of the blackberries shine while adding a bit of sweetness from the honey and maple syrup. If you like things super sweet you can add a tablespoon of honey to the filling of berries otherwise this yummy dessert is ready to warm up your table with the essence of summer!
