Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350
Melt butter in a large cast-iron skillet or ovenproof baking dish in the oven, 5 to 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, place blackberries in a large bowl. Using a potato masher, mash blackberries to release their juices. If blackberries are tart, sprinkle with sugar.
In another large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the sugar, milk and vanilla extract; mix until well combined.
Remove the skillet from the oven and add melted butter to flour mixture; stir to combine. Pour mixture back into skillet and then pour the blackberries and their juices into the center.
Transfer skillet to oven and bake until the top is golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the batter comes out clean, about 1 hour.
Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature with whipped cream or ice cream.

For this cobbler, I use my grandma's square cast iron skillet my mom gave me many years ago. It's the perfect skillet and the perfect size.

I saw this being made by Virginia Willis on TV. It looked so good and so easy to make, I had to try it. It is delicious.
