Does the cobbler have a bottom case?

This is actually a hot topic among some of the crowd, but by definition, no, a cobbler doesn’t have a bottom case. Cobblers have a fruity bottom and are usually topped with sweet cookie dough, but can also have a more cake-like consistency. Some people still swear by putting a bottom shell on their cobbler, but it’s not a traditional preparation.

What is the difference between cobbler and crisp?

Cobblers are topped with a batter, while shortbread is topped with a crumbly mixture, usually consisting of flour, cereal (such as oatmeal), butter, sugar, and sometimes nuts.

Can I use frozen blackberries for blackberry cobbler?

Yes, you can, but the end result will probably be a bit runny due to the extra moisture from the berries once thawed. To compensate for this, double the amount of cornstarch in the recipe.

Can I halve this recipe?

Yes, you can! This recipe, as written, makes a full 9×13 pan, which may be a bit much for some. You can just halve all the ingredients in this recipe and make a 9×9 pan.
