• 2 cups all-purpose flour • 1 tablespoon baking powder • 3 tablespoons sugar • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed • 3/4 cup heavy cream • 6 cups fresh blackberries • 1/2 cup sugar • 1 tablespoon cornstarch • 1 tablespoon lemon zest • heavy cream, for brushing • cinnamon sugar, for dusting


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and butter a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, 3 tablespoons sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Step 3

Using a pastry blender or your hands, add the butter to the flour mixture until the butter is pea-sized and the flour resembles a coarse meal.

Step 4

Pour 3/4 cup of heavy cream over the flour mixture and stir until it forms a soft dough and is fully combined. The dough will be soft and sticky; be careful not to overwork it.

Step 5

Turn the dough out onto a sheet of plastic wrap or wax paper, and cover with another sheet. Use a rolling pin to gently roll the dough into a 9-inch round. Place the dough on a baking sheet, covered with plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator while preparing the filling.

Step 6

In a large bowl, make the filling by gently stirring together the blackberries, 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, and lemon zest until mixed completely.

Step 7

Pour the filling into the prepared pie plate.

Step 8

Remove the chilled dough from the refrigerator and cut a 2-inch wide hole in the center with a cookie cutter to create a steam vent.

Step 9

Place the dough on top of the blackberry filling, brush lightly with heavy cream, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Step 10

Bake for 55 to 60 minutes until the top is golden and the fruit is bubbling. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 30 minutes before serving.

Step 11

Serve the blackberry cobbler warm with a scoop of your favorite ice cream! Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 3 days.
