Have been on the lookout for nice, fresh blackberries since tagging this recipe & finally found just what I wanted! Even had the Grand Marnier ready & waiting! Your recipes makes for A REALLY GREAT TASTING DESSERT & although I usually like making this kind of thing all in one dish, I will say that the individual servings make for great presentation! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
Alligirl, thank you, these tasty little cobblers were wonderful. Quick and so easy to make, with terrific flavor and great textures. The cobbler had so much flavor, was tart, tangy, sweet and decadent with an excellent crumble. The berries had just the right amount of velvety liquid. I was going to serve these with ice cream but after tasting the treat, I decided to serve them plain, the berries really shone in this recipe. I will be making these often.
I tried using 8 cups (4 pts) blackberries and Splenda in a 9 X 9 baking dish. It was sweet enough and had a nice flavor but was very runny. Stick with the recommended ramekins and brown sugar.
