As some of you may know, I am a sucker for mason jars. I am also a sucker for desserts, so when I spotted pies on Pinterest served in mason jars, I was elated! Waiting for the perfect time to create these magical little numbers, I finally got my chance when a 30th birthday invitation for one of my best friends arrived in the mail and low and behold…it was a mason jar! My perfect timing had arrived! Mason jar invite + rustic hunting lodge + southern cooking = mason jar desserts…truly a match made in heaven!
Instead of doing pies, I decided to go the cobbler route and used fresh blackberries that my dad had just picked. You can certainly use whatever fruit you like, but it might be easier to stick with blueberries or blackberries, just because they are smaller. After you bake the cobblers in the oven, you just scoop out the cobbler and place into your mason jar. It is literally that simple!
Not only was the cobbler quite tasty, it received rave reviews from the birthday girl as well as her guests. And let’s be honest, it’s hard to resist any dessert, but an individual cobbler all for you is hard to beat. To top it off, add a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
- 1 cup of self rising flour
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 cup of milk
- 2-2/12 cups of blackberries sprinkled with sugar and lime juice
- Melt butter in a greased baking dish in the oven. (I used a 9x12.)
- Mix the flour, sugar and milk and add to baking dish
- Drop the blackberries (sprinkled with sugar and lime juice) onto the batter in the pan.
- DO NOT MIX THEM IN!
- Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
- Scoop into mason jars. (I used the 4 oz size.)
