On the heels of those lavender cookies, I bring you another blackberry treat.

To think, I used to not like blackberries!

This recipe came to be because I saw this BLUEberry brie grilled cheese. (Which actually uses blueberry pie filling instead of simply the fruit.)

And we all know I like to put fruit in everything. Why not a sandwich?

So I swapped the blueberries for blackberries, and had the perfect amount of brie to use up! It was meant to be.

This recipe is not exactly one of the healthier ones, but it's comfort food at its finest.

Plus a serving of fruit counts for something, right?

Brie is a favorite of mine for grilled cheeses (as evidenced in this “grown up” version).

ALSO I learned a new trick for making grilled cheese sandwiches even better – butter BOTH sides and grill one side before putting the fillings in. Tip from chef Adam Kuban.

You can keep it simple and just use blackberries and brie cheese, or you can get fancy and drizzle a little honey and/or cinnamon on for a little extra sweetness.

The recipe measurements are just a guideline, go ahead and stuff that sandwich to your hearts content!

Brie cheese is my absolute favorite and I usually pair it with raspberries but I really love your idea of blackberries. I will be using it moving forward. Thanks for that!

fruit and cheese are such a great combination. This sounds like a delicious sandwich and my wild blackberries are perfectly ripe in the backyard. Great timing
