How to store blackberry cobbler?
The leftover blackberry cobbler stores best in the refrigerator. Simply put it in an airtight container and refrigerate. It will last for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Simply reheat it in the microwave or oven and enjoy.
Most people think they can freeze leftover blackberry cobbler. Honestly, I won’t recommend that. That’s because freezing it will alter its texture, and the cobbler will end up being soggy and will be unacceptable to eat. Since it is very easy to make, I recommend you make it fresh every time and skip freezing it.
