What is Cobbler?
No pie crust skills? Make a cobbler. Simply mix some fruit thickened with flour and sugar and fill the bottom of a casserole dish, then top it with a batter or biscuit-style crust and bake! Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Delish!
Best Blueberry Cobbler
- Blueberries are colorfully sweet, tasty little gems of summer. Pick them yourself, or get them at a farmer’s market for best results.
- Summer desserts like cobblers are quick and easy to put together, bake, and serve in no time at all!
- All you need is one bowl and one casserole dish, and blueberry cobbler is on the table in no time at all. Blueberry cobbler is the star of any picnic or potluck. Serve it with a few Pistachio Shortbread Cookies, or some Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, and a pitcher of sweetened ice tea or lemonade!
Ingredients and Variations
FRUIT: Choose blueberries that are plump with unbroken skins and a slightly sweet smell. Frozen berries can be used, and don’t need to be thawed before using them in the recipe. Use other berries such as blackberries, cherries, strawberries, or even stone fruits like peaches and plums. And feel free to mix and match the fruit filling as well!
TOPPING: This basic flour, sugar, baking powder topping is lightly seasoned with a dash of cinnamon. No time to prep? Use a pre-made baking mix like Bisquick, or a can of refrigerated biscuits. For a gluten-free crust, use buckwheat, almond, or coconut flour.
How to Make Blueberry Cobbler
This is such a quick dessert:
- Toss blueberries in flour & sugar then spread into the bottom of a casserole dish.
- Mix the topping ingredients together and scoop portions over the top of the berries (they won’t be fully covered).
- Bake until the top is golden and berries are bubbling.
- Let the blueberry cobbler rest before serving alone or with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.
A cobbler tastes better the next day! Keep fruit cobbler covered in the refrigerator and serve cold or heated in the microwave. It will last about 4 days. Cobbler can be frozen as a whole or in individual containers once it is fully cooled. Wrap the cobbler in foil and then plastic wrap, write the date on the outside. Cobblers can stay frozen for up to 4 weeks in the freezer.
