Should Blackberry Cobbler be Refrigerated?
Have leftover cobbler?
No problem at all! You can cover it loosely with aluminum foil or clingwrap and store it in the fridge. It should store easily for 3-4 days.
Can Blackberry Cobbler be Frozen?
Yes, you can definitely freeze blackberry cobbler.
You have two option. You can freeze it before or after baking.
To freeze before baking, assemble the cobbler right up to before you place it in the oven. Cover it with clingwrap and then a layer of foil on top of that and place it in the freezer. To cook after freezing, just take it out and place in the fridge overnight to defrost. Cook it the next day as you would normally.

Is Blackberry Cobbler a Pie?
Some people confuse a cobbler with a pie. Although the main ingredients might be similar, how it is assembled is different.
Also, pie is made from a pastry, whereas a cobbler can use a pastry, dough, or batter.
Why is my Blackberry Cobbler Runny?
The main reason that your blackberry cobbler came out runny is that you didn't pat the blackberries dry.
Before using the blackberries, wash them thoroughly and pat them dry using a kitchen towel. Wet blackberries mean moisture in the cobbler, which as a result, will turn your cobbler runny.
Furthermore, another reason can be the fact that the batter had a thin consistency. If you follow the measurements accurately, you won't have any problem with the batter's consistency.
