Blackberry Cobbler

Last night I made a blackberry cobbler for George, my husband. This is what was left of it this morning.

Our neighbors dropped off a gallon size bucket filled to the top with blackberries. I'm in a hurry to use them up before Monday brings on the mushies.

Plans are cobbler (done), freezer jam, pie, liqueur (see recipe below), pancakes, and save some for eating.
