Boysenberry Cobbler

Come late spring, our boysenberry vines start giving up their berries, a few cups a day. What to make with them? Boysenberry cobbler. Quick and easy, this recipe produces a delicious cobbler, a formidable blow to any low carb diet. The cobbler is similar in its irresistible yumminess to strawberry shortcake and I expect that later in the season we’ll be applying it to blackberries as well.
