Blackberry Cobbler

Can you believe there are people living among us that have never had cobbler? More baffling, people who have never heard of cobbler?  Call me ignorant but I didn't know that cobbler was a "southern" thing until a few years ago.  My old boss who is from Pennsylvania had never had cobbler and didn't know what it was.  I was completely shocked and appalled!
How can it be that someone had went their whole life without cobbler? I grew up on peach, cherry, apple, and blackberry cobbler.  It was a staple in my diet quite frankly and the most popular dessert at all family functions.  In fact, this particular cobbler that I truly love, I boycotted for about 2 years.  My mom made this cobbler for a family gathering and for at least a year she was asked to bring it to EVERY family function, gathering, birthday party, etc.  I was dreaming in blackberries and if you really could turn into what you eat I would have been a blackberry.  I actually got sick of this dessert for awhile and refused to eat it for about 2 years but now I'm back on the bandwagon.
Like my corn pudding, this was another dish I made when I first started cooking.  It's a real confidence booster in the kitchen and people are so impressed with the lattice crust...Suckers, they don't know how stinkin' easy this is to make. Next time you sign up to bring dessert, try out this cobbler.
