As summer winds down, it’s time to pack just a few more sweet memories into these precious moments. There are still waves to watch, fireworks to set up, fish to catch, bug bites to scratch and long, late nights sparked by laughter shared with those we love the very best. Summer is for memories and sharing summer traditions with the next generation. Treasure these last few days and enter for the chance to get one more getaway in before the leaves start to fall.

Blackberry Cobbler Recipe




  • 8 packages (6 ounces each) Driscoll’s Blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour (or cornstarch)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Pinch of salt


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Gently stir together blackberries, sugar, tapioca flour, lime juice and salt in a large bowl until evenly blended. Evenly divide between 8 (8-ounce) ceramic ramekins.


  • Place flour, coconut, sugar, pecans, baking powder and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed to combine. Add butter and mix until there are no pieces larger than a pea. Add egg and mix until fully combined and dough starts to come together.
  • Remove 2 tablespoons dough, roll into a ball and flatten into a disk about 1/4-inch thick. Place on top of cobbler filling in ramekin. Repeat with remaining dough and ramekins. Place ramekins on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake cobblers 20 to 30 minutes or until tops are golden brown and filling is bubbling.
