Does cobbler have a bottom crust?
This is actually a hotly debated topic in some crowds, but by definition, no, cobblers do not have a bottom crust. Cobblers have a fruit bottom and are generally topped with a sweet biscuit dough, but can also have a more cake like consistency as well. Some people still swear by having a bottom crust on their cobbler, but it is not a traditional preparation.
What’s the difference between a cobbler and a crisp?
A cobbler is topped with a batter while a crisp is topped with a crumbly mixture usually consisting of flour, cereal (like oatmeal), butter, sugar, and sometimes nuts.
Can I use frozen blackberries to make blackberry cobbler?
Yes, you can, but the end result may a bit runnier since the berries end up having extra moisture once thawed. To compensate for this, double the amount of cornstarch in the recipe.
Can I halve this recipe?
Yes you can! This recipe, as written, makes an entire 9×13 pan which might be a bit much for some people. You can directly halve all of the ingredients in this recipe and make a 9×9 pan instead.
