Our blog recipe this month is a peach cobbler, but we are given a berry option in the side notes, so I went that route since we are berry fans. 😍
Cobblers seem to be a dessert that really is good anytime of the year…either eaten warm in the fall and winter or room temp in the spring and summer. A berry cobbler though, really does scream sunshine and summertime.
I went with a mixture of berries: blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries. To help with the moisture that can be a problem when cooking with berries, some cornstarch is added to the mix. The berries are placed in the pan and then topped with drop biscuits…the recipe being one for beginners. No cutting in butter, or worrying about working the dough too much or too little. The recipe uses heavy cream and buttermilk. Just a little mixing and that is it. Easy.
The cobbler is baked for 45-55 min, until the topping is golden brown and the fruit juices can be seen bubbling around the edges….then cooled to room temperature and eaten with or without ice cream or whipped cream.
Based on the feedback I received from my tasters…the ones that ate it with a topping, loved it…the ones without, said it was good but a little dry and too much biscuit on top in parts. Since the biscuits are dropped in mounds…the dough could be out of ratio with the berries depending I guess which part you got haha. I am thinking you just don’t notice that if there is ice cream or whipped cream involved. 😂
Seemed like a perfect summertime dessert…and if I make it again, I will be sure to serve it with either ice cream or whipped cream!
