Cherry Blueberry Cobbler

When company is coming, I love a quick, easy dessert that you can make ahead of time, and then pop it in the oven according to your party schedule.

You can serve it warm with vanilla ice cream, or cool with fresh whipped cream. Either way, it’s a summer favorite dessert.

how to make Cherry Blueberry Cobblers

How do you make a crusted Cobbler?

  1. Grease six ramekins and place on a baking sheet (or use a 8×8″ baking dish).
  2. Mix together the cherries and blueberries, lemon juice, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Divide the fruit into the greased ramekins (or pour into the pie dish or baking dish). Bake while you prepare the topping.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the buttermilk and almond extract; set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture forms large, coarse crumbs the size of small peas.
  5. Pour the buttermilk mixture over the flour mixture; stir with a wooden spoon until combined into a soft, sticky dough.
  6. Drop the biscuit mixture by spoonfuls onto the hot fruit. The topping will spread during the baking time.
  7. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the dough.
  8. Bake until hot and bubbling.

The biscuit topping will be browned. Remove from oven and cool!

Tips and substitutions:

  • We find the secret to this recipe is to first bake the individual cobblers in the oven for about 12 minutes before you add the biscuit or cobbler topping.
  • Brown sugar gives the dessert a richer flavor! You can use “dark” brown sugar if you want to take it up a notch.
  • Any other juicy fruit is quite good for this recipe, such as pears and peaches.
  • Make an 8×8 size cobbler if you want just one cobbler!

Enjoy cherries in the summer months!

Cherries are amazing this time of year, with so many ways to enjoy them:

  • Take them into the outdoors–kayaking, hiking, and camping!
  • Serve on an appetizer platter, like this Almond Berry Cheese Board.
  • Pit and add to Greek yogurt, with honey and nuts for breakfast.
  • Set out as a snack with wine or cheese, or pair with chocolate for dessert.

We love hosting in the summer months, because we not only get to enjoy alfresco dining, the nights are longer and we get to sit around the table longer. Combined with a cinnamon-biscuit topping in individual ramekins, on top of a hot cherry filling, this cobbler is best served warm.

Enjoy!
