Homemade Blackberry Cobbler Recipe

Blackberry Custard to me is one of the best desserts ever made. I love blackberries and I just simply love pie so you can see why I think blackberry custard is one of the best desserts I have ever had. I can remember picking blackberries all day to get my grandmother to make blackberry custards. And below I am going to share my Grandmother's recipe for blackberry custard. When the fresh blackberries are in season in your area be sure to make this delicious blackberry custard. And your taste buds and family and friends will thank you.

To make this recipe for blackberry custard you will need.

1. 1 9 inch pie shell.

2. 2 Cups of fresh blackberries.

3. 1 1/2 Cups of white granulated sugar.

4. 1/4 Cup self rising flour.

5. 2 large eggs well beaten.

6. 2/3 of a Cup of evaporated milk.

7. 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract.

For Your Crumb Topping

1. 1/2 Cup white granulated sugar.

2. 1/3 Cup self rising flour.

3. 1/4 Cup margarine.

4. 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract.

Now you will want to toss your berries , 1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar , and 1/4 cup of self rising flour to coat your berries.Place the fruit into your 9 inch pie shell.

      I made this Blackberry Custard pie (or whatever it is) today using freshpicked blackberries. Followed directions exactly...It did not come out at all like your picture. I expected a custard base with blackberries going through it. It was NOT a custard, and I can't even describe what it was. It was so sweet and could not taste the backberries at all. The crust stuck to the bottom of the pie plate, and had to chisle it out!!!It is now soaking, and the rest is in the trash. This is TERRIBLE!!!!
