Berry Cobbler!!!

Sunde White illustrates her essay on how to make Berry Cobbler


Okay, so I know I’m totally late on this berry cobbler recipe but I just concocted it last week for Britt’s birthday and he really liked it so I wanted to post it before I forgot.  Furthermore, Blackberries are at their peak right now so you could still make a beautiful black and blue cobbler with just blackberries or black and blue berries.  If your berries are still good in your area, I’d do a mix of all that you can find.  If you want to make this during the winter you can still get good frozen peaches and frozen blueberries at Trader Joes.  Just add extra cinnamon and use brown sugar instead of white. Don’t use apples!  I don’t think it would really go and also apples take longer to cook than the biscuits so you’ll end up with crunchy apples.

Anyway, what is a cobbler, you ask? It’s like a pie but really easy and instead of having to make a crust you make some sweetened fluffy biscuits and just drop them on top of the fruit and then serve warm with some vanilla ice cream.  Britt and I both really liked this recipe and I will definitely make it all next summer.  Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 350

Berries: In a pie dish mix together the following and then set aside.

3 big cups of berries of your choice

1/3 cup sugar

1tbsp cornstarch

1 tbsp tapioca

Pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg


2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 large tbsp sugar

¼ cinnamon


6 tbsp cold butter

¾ cup buttermilk

¼ cup heavy cream

 In a mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients and mix well. Then cut in the butter until it looks gravely.  Mix in the buttermilk and cream with a few swift strokes until a dough forms.  Drop spoonfuls of biscuit over the berries and sprinkle the top with coarse sugar and a little cinnamon.  Bake until golden brown and filling is bubbling, about 25-30 minutes.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
