When she was six, Clara Bess had added a dash of orange zest and ginger to Momma’s prized cherry cobbler. It was the best cobbler she had ever made. Momma had never mixed her berries in her pies, and didn’t make cobblers; Clara Bess mixed and matched apples and raspberries, peaches and cherries, pears and blueberries. She had been helping Momma in the kitchen since she was tiny, helping Lily mix and measure the ingredients for cookies and cakes and pies. By the time she was four, Clara Bess was rolling out biscuit and yeast dough, and rolled up cinnamon buns with remarkable skill. (excerpt from Clara Bess)
Although, Clara Bess liked any fresh fruit cobbler, she is partial to blackberries, so here are a couple of blackberry cobbler recipes.
Thanks to Caryl Kane for providing this yummy looking recipe!
And a how-to fun video I found!
In addition to berries and cherries, there were apple and pear trees on the farm where Clara Bess grew up. She mixed apples with raspberries and pears with blueberries in her cobblers. Here is an apple cobbler recipe I found—something Clara Bess would take and make changes to, I’m sure. (I do the same thing!)
What is your favorite flavor of cobbler? Do you serve with ice cream or whipped cream, or without? Do you change it up like Clara Bess does, or do you go by the book, following the recipe to a T?

“I once said I should write down all the story ideas in my head so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!
Ms. Mason has been writing since 1995, and began working in earnest on her debut novel, Tessa in 2013. Meanwhile, she cranked out a few dozen poems, and made countless notes for story ideas. Ms. Mason lived with depression for many years, and the inherent feelings of worthlessness and invisibility; she didn’t want to be who she was and struggled with her own identity for many years. Her characters face many of these same demons.
Ms. Mason has lived in the Upstate of South Carolina since 1988. She lived in Colorado for sixteen years, during which time she: went to high school, got married, had babies, got divorced and went to college. Her “babies” are now grown, two have babies of their own. She currently lives alone, with her five cats.
Ms. Mason writes Christian-worldview–in other words, there’s no salvation message, but there are plenty of characters who know the Lord and share His perspective with those who are struggling.
