Deluxe Blackberry Cobbler

"This is another Southern Living recipe that I really like. The cobbler is just a little bit different from your average cobblers in that not only does it have blackberries in it, it's also flavored with a cream cheese crust, apples, orange juice and lemon juice. Talk about bursting with flavor! This is delicious served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top."

    Another awesome recipe by the Dreamgoddess. I absolutely love blackberries and didn't change a thing. It was perfect. The fruit was tart, tangy and sweet, with a lovely light crust. We really enjoyed the addition of the vanilla, it takes the dish to a different level. This cobbler was sheer perfection served with vanilla bean ice cream. Into my keeper box this goes. Thanks so much for sharing. :)

    I made the filling with frozen mulberries and strawberries, and it was delicious, great consistency from the addition of apple (I found only one apple was needed to yield 1 cup). However, I was not much of a fan of the pastry, I found it tough and with little flavour. I did use light cream cheese which might have caused the problem, I would make this again and try to fiddle with the pastry a bit.
