What is cobbler?

Cobbler is a dish made of fruit or a savory filling, poured into a large baking dish. It’s covered with a biscuit dough on top, and then baked!

Here’s a tip: If you are working with super ripe raspberries, like in the heat of summer-type-berries that are fresh off the vine, then feel free to cut back on the added sugar. Substitute other summer berries or peaches into this easy cobbler recipe as well.

How to serve cobbler?

Make sure each serving is warm (I just zap in the microwave for 30 seconds per serving), so the ice cream or whipped cream or gelato melts right into the crust. OH, so good.

This recipe is much better served warm, trust me. Oh, and what is Bonta Salted Vanilla Gelato? It’s made right here in Bend, Oregon.

Can you freeze cobbler?

Yes, you can freeze cobblers.

Bake the cobbler, allow to cool, then cover tightly in plastic wrap. Add foil on top and freeze for up to one month.

It’s easy to reheat in a 350-degree oven.

Quite delicious for your family or company!

Easy cobbler for company

This past weekend we had out-of-town company! We do not eat dessert every night in our house, so I’m always looking for any excuse to make a new dessert.

My friend had left town and left me a bunch of raspberries, so I added some (from the freezer) to make 5 cups. So yes, you can make with frozen or fresh raspberries!
