Last but Not Least

My Ma really knows the way to my heart. She has so graciously passed on her sweet tooth to all three children. It is a blessing and curse as we voraciously eat anything sweet in sight with an unquenchable appetite. I'd call myself the Cookie Monster, but that would not be accurate as I do not discriminate among desserts. 
The expert that she is in the artistry of all things sweet, gave me a little lesson in fixin' black raspberry cobbler (hear my adopted Southern twang) . I am going to give credit where credit is due...I didn't do diddly squat in the preparation of this yummy cobbler. All my pictures are staged to appear that I was slaving away in the kitchen. 
I did however help with the devouring portion of this segment. I know it tasted so good because it was made with looooove.

Warm from the oven scoop it out in big heaping portions, add a scoop of ice cream and you will be licking the bowl clean. It is so good it will be difficult to look like a civilized human being. 

Because we're friends, I'll share...
