Everyone's favorite summertime dessert just got even easier. This time, we're making our cobbler in the slow cooker. Four cups of berries go into our Berry Cobbler: raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries. The beauty of a cobbler is its ability to be customized. Swap in your favorite berries or even peaches.

Half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon goes into the batter giving just a hint of spice. Top with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream and you've got a winning dessert.

If you're skipping the ice cream, garnish the top of the cobbler with a dusting of powdered sugar.

Resist the urge to lift the slow cooker lid while this berry cobbler is cooking. Each time you lift the lid, the temperature drops dramatically, which sets back the cobbler crust cook time.

This Berry Cobbler serves 8, making it ideal for casual dinner parties or cookouts. It will take about 2 hours and 45 minutes for the cobbler to come together, but only 15 minutes of hands-on time.
