pickin' blackberries

We picked blackberries yesterday.

It was a good time with friends.
I really liked the view of this barn.

As you can see, pickin' blackberries can be hard work.

We did end up with 4 3/4 pounds. But, hey, we like pickin' berries. This blackberry patch has no thorns. Holly introduced me to it last summer, and we liked it so much we went back this year. So I came home and made cobbler.

Making cobbler is really easy, especially with this recipe ...


3-4 cups berries
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2-3 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 cups Bisquick
1 cup milk
1 c. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9"x13" pan. Mix first 5 ingredients, place in pan. Mix last 3 ingredients, pour over berries. Bake about 1 hour or until berry mixture is set. Serve with ice cream if you wish.
