Bake cute mini blackberry cobblers in jars for a fun and portable dessert. Serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream or pack them up for a picnic.
Blackberries and a buttery topping come together to make such a tasty cobbler. Bake it up in small jars for the perfect mini individual treats.
There is just something extra special about small individual desserts. They are cute and you get to have a whole treat to yourself.
Baking cobbler in jars makes them transportable and easy to serve. Pkus they are so simple to make.
The cute little 4 oz jars are becoming one of my favorite ways to make desserts. We have used them to make mini key lime cheesecakes, mini baked cheesecakes and little lemon no bake cheesecakes as well.
They are all amazing and perfect for parties because there is no mess of serving, people can just grab a jar and a fork and enjoy. They are also perfect for picnic baskets or potlucks because with the lid on the jar they are so easy to take along wherever you are going.
So I thought it would be fun to do something besides cheesecake in my favorite jars. So with a pile of blackberries coming off the vine, cobbler seemed like a perfect choice.
Assembling the individual cobblers
Making the cobbler in individual jars is really not much more work than making a big cobbler. Just distribute fresh or frozen blackberries among the jars, then add a splash of lemon juice to each.
Next mix together sugar, flour and an egg until it makes a crumbly mixture. Scoop a couple of Tablespoons of that mixture on top of the berries in each jar.
Melt some butter and sprinkle a half Tablespoon over each jar. Now bake until the berries are bubbly and the topping is golden.
Eat them warm with a bit of ice cream or whipped cream. Or allow them to cool and put the jar lids on to make them transportable.
Leftovers can be stored at room temperature for up to three days or in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can freeze them for longer storage, but the topping may be a bit soggy when you thaw them.
What is the difference between a crisp and a cobbler?
Fruit crisps have a topping made with oats and streusel. Cobblers have more of a sweet biscuit style topping. Both are delicious ways to turn fresh or frozen fruit into dessert.
Can I use this recipe with other fruits?
Yes. Feel free to experiment with other fruit in these little individual cobblers. Peaches would be tasty or try using strawberries or raspberries.

Instead of making individual shortcakes for everyone, make one big blackberry shortcake cake. It is a beauty to make and serve and it tastes delicious too.
Tender blackberry sour cream muffins are the perfect mix of fresh fruit and sweet baked good. They are pretty, easy to whip up and perfect for a grab and go breakfast.
