Wits' End Blackberry Cobbler
Preheat oven to 375F.
Toss 6-8 cups of fresh blackberries
with 3 TBSP cornstarch
and 1 cup of sugar.
Spoon this mixture into lightly greased 9" square baking dish.
In large bowl, stir together 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar,
1/2 cup (which is 1 stick) butter, melted,
and 1/8 tsp salt.
Add 1 1/2 cups flour,
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans,
and 1 tsp cinnamon (or to taste).
Stir until blended.
Let this mixture stand 20 minutes or until firm enough to crumble into small pieces.
(I actually mixed the streusel up the evening before and chilled it in the refrigerator.)
Crumble streusel over berry mixture.
Bake at 375F for 30-35 minutes, or until bubbly and golden brown.
(We kept the leftovers in the refrigerator.)
This recipe is adapted from two separate recipes in a Southern Living magazine from summer 2012. Plus a couple of tweaks of my own.
