{Recipe} Blackberry Cobbler

I'm having some ADD with the blog design. I changed/simplified the heading & have added some new titles below. I'm pretty happy with the outcome…for now :)  Now, onto business. One of my dear dear friends came to visit a few weeks ago & like some of my other visiting friends had a few places she wanted to go, one being SUR. If you're unfamiliar with SUR it's owned by Lisa Vanderpump originally from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She now has her own spinoff which feature the restaurant & their staff. I'd been once for happy hour & really enjoyed the atmosphere, so we decided to stay for dinner.  After many drinks & a lot of food, we were stuffed…BUT my friend was on vacation, so we had to order dessert.

 Normally, I go for something chocolate-y, but the waitress recommended the Blackberry Cobbler so being that it was "fruit" we ordered it. Holy crap. It was INSANELY good! A few days after my friend left I wanted to find a copycat recipe when I discovered Lisa had actually shared the recipe with People Magazine last August. JACKPOT! During my celebratory end of the season cooking-palooza I made this cobbler to go along with the Balsamic-Glazed Steak Rolls & it tasted exactly as it had at SUR. You MUST serve this hot with a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. The combination will literally melt in your mouth. It was surprisingly easy to make & a BIG hit!

Serves: 6
Cook time according to Rachel: 35 mins
How difficult was this for Rachel? Super easy!

4 cups blackberries (4 small containers)
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp corn starch
1 cup flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick cold butter, diced
Vanilla Bean ice cream


Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Toss Blackberries, lemon juice & corn starch in a large bowl & mix well
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar & salt.
Using a mixer or your hands, incorporate butter until mix appears sandy with a few pea-sized clumps
In an 8x8 baking dish, place berries evenly on the bottom, then pour flour mix on top.
Bake for 25-30 mins until the top is golden brown.

Scoop out, add some ice cream & serve immediately!
