And it has me running to the store for blackberries.

Leave it to Trisha Yearwood to perfectly recreate a secret family recipe on her first try. The country singer-turned-celebrity chef is a classic Southern food expert, after all. Yearwood has yet to let us down when it comes to an easy, comforting dish, from her Charleston Cheese Dip to the Nashville Chili she developed with husband Garth Brooks.

So it's no surprise that she was able to nail her grandma’s Blackberry Cobbler after making it just once. With a simpler blackberry filling and golden brown biscuit topping, it doesn’t get much easier, or tastier, than this.

How To Make Trisha Yearwood’s Grandma's Blackberry Cobbler

Yearwood said her grandma’s Blackberry Cobbler recipe was reborn on an August day when she found herself with “an ample supply of beautiful blackberries” after taking some friends to pick them in Oklahoma. Channeling her inner Martha Stewart, Yearwood said she decided to make her family a picture-perfect dessert and called up her mom for her Grandma Paulk’s blackberry cobbler recipe.

Like many family recipes, Yearwood learned there actually were no specific instructions to the treat. Instead, her mom shared with her a vague idea of what the recipe entailed: “Berries in water, Sugar, Bring to a boil, Flour, Shortening, Milk.” But the remnants of the recipe were all she needed to cook up the Blackberry Cobbler she was envisioning.

Based on this charming story, I have a feeling Trisha Yearwood’s cobbler might be difficult not to eat straight from the pan. Thankfully, we have a similar Blackberry Cobbler Recipe ready to go for you to bake up for your whole family like Yearwood did (or save entirely for yourself).

Our own beloved Blackberry Cobbler Recipe is similar to Yearwood’s. If you are feeling like speeding up the cobbler-making process, Yearwood suggests using store-bought refrigerated dough instead of making your own topping. If you do end up making it yourself, we recommend erring on the side of more topping rather than less (It is the best part, after all).

Yearwood also makes it clear that she hasn’t used wild blackberries since she made the recipe for the first time. In fact, store-bought blackberries will actually result in a sweeter cobbler than wild-picked blackberries, so if you do stumble upon some fresh blackberries, make sure to add in extra sugar.

If Yearwood and I haven’t yet convinced you that it is the summer of Blackberry Cobbler, maybe Jennifer Garner’s similar 3-ingredient version will. With both Garner and Yearwood on its side, this dessert is sure to become the must-make dessert of the season.
