Blackberry Cobbler Roll

I have prepared many different versions of Blackberry Cobbler over the years, but this Blackberry Cobbler Roll will go down in history as my very favorite!  On this particular day, my daughter and I were spending some time in the kitchen together.  I had the pleasure of teaching her how to make this family recipe!  I recently put several bags of blackberries in the freezer so our family can have cobblers all winter long.  I have been known to go ahead and prepare the cobbler, wrap it unbaked and freeze for easy preparation.  Did I mention…you cannot serve this cobbler with out warming it (if not serving it fresh and warm from the oven) and placing a few scoops of ice cream on top?

First, make cobbler dough by cutting butter into small pieces (Make sure your butter is cold from the refrigerator!).  With a pastry blender, cut butter into flour, baking soda and salt until mixture is small particles…





















Add milk and stir with a fork until mixture comes off the side of the bowl and begins to form a ball…











Turn onto floured board or pastry mat and roll out in a circular shape – approximately 1/4 thick…











Spread blackberries over dough, in a single layer…











Sprinkle tops of berries with cinnamon…











Roll dough, like a jelly roll…making sure you don’t lose any blackberries…











Cut into thick slices, approximately one-inch.

Place in a baking dish (I prefer glass!) over melted butter, which has cooled…











Pour a simple syrup of water and sugar over rolls…











Bake and sprinkle sugar over the top of cobbler after removing it from oven…
