End of Summer Blackberry Cobbler
It’s September and that means everyone is getting pumped up for fall. Everyone but me, that is. Maybe it’s the fact that we live in the Pacific Northwest so summer starts a little later for us and fall means rain, but I want to hold onto whatever last drops of summer I can. I adore the end of summer as the light gets golden, the nights get crisper, and the temperature still calls for tank tops and shorts.
I also love the end of summer because that’s when the blackberries ripen. Usually we have to go searching for blackberries but this year we have them right in our own backyard! I know, blackberries are weeds and Nate’s doing his darnedest to get rid of them before building a fence, but, for now, being able to head into the backyard for a morsel of sweet goodness is amazing!
Each year at this time I get a craving to make all the blackberry cobblers I can. I volunteer to bring dessert to every occasion and, of course, I only use blackberries fresh off the bushes.
