End of Summer Sweetness
The end of the summer season is bittersweet. There’s always a longing for time to slow down. I wish that there could be more summer days so that I can attempt to mark more things of my mental summer bucket list. More vacations, more time spent on the water and lounging on the hammock and less time worrying about the hustle and bustle that will inevitably arrive along with the school year.
The end of summer also brings beautiful things too. In the pacific northwest we get the gift of an abundance of blackberries growing naturally around every corner. We picked a couple quarts of these delicious wild blackberries for a quick cobbler and it was so good I had to share.
How to Make Blackberry Mojito Cobbler
This delicious sweet topping compliments the tart fresh blackberries so well. But, if you happen to be one of those people who plans ahead and freezes cookie dough you can substitute frozen sugar cookie dough. Just bring to room temperature before baking.
You can also use frozen berries. Either defrost before using or bake frozen adding 20-30 minutes additional baking time. Bonus points for frozen dough AND frozen berries because in this instance you don’t have to defrost the dough before baking.
Simply stir sugar, cornstarch, salt, lime juice and chopped mint into the fresh blackberries. Then crumble sugar cookie dough on top.
Delicious served as is, or take it out of this world with a sprinkle of fresh mint and a scoop of vanilla ice cream (or whipped cream! or greek yogurt!).
The best thing about this cookie cobbler recipe is that it can be customized using any combination of fruit you have on hand. Also experiment with using lemon or orange instead of lime, or maybe basil instead of mint…. use whatever is fresh and available!
