Blackberry Cobbler in a Mug ~  So Easy!!! I made this last night because at 11:30 PM I felt like dessert.  I used peaches instead of berries.  It's not quite as good as oven-cooked cobbler, but it was much quicker and we didn't have to fire up the oven in the middle of a hot Roman Summer.  ~The Husband approved.
