When we think of summer desserts, blackberry cobbler is the first on our mind… Top it off with vanilla ice cream…. well we are in heaven. Although I am and I am sure I am not alone, getting excited for fall and back to our routine, there is always time to enjoy a slice of blackberry cobbler.
Loads of sweet tender blackberries with sugar, cardamom, and orange peel. Each bite is filled with sinful sweetness. What a better way to end the summer!!! Easy to make and easier to enjoy this is the perfect dessert to bring to any end-of-summer party.
The top crumble is sweet, tender, and tasty. You cannot stop just eating a slice or large spoonful, or in the case of my family, the slice is a quarter of the skillet. I have a very sweet tooth family, can you tell.
Enjoy every bite!

In a 10 – inch cast iron skillet, stir together the blackberries, brown sugar, orange juice, vanilla, cardamom and orange peel over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer, and cook until juice is released from blackberries and mixture is hot and bubbly, approximately 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 3 tablespoons water. Slowly add to berry mixture, stirring to combine. Cook until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
