Mixed Berry Cobbler

Happy May, everyone! Here we are again, on the brink of summer and it’s about time I share a seasonal dessert favorite of mine that combines all the best things that life has to offer: Mixed Berry Cobbler! Ugh, it’s so beautiful and delicious I can barely contain myself!! What’s not to love….gorgeous, in-season berries, a crunchy sweet dough topping, and refreshing vanilla ice cream to top it all off. See what I’m saying, what’s not to love?!? 

Anytime there’s a pie/cobbler/crumble on a restaurant menu I immediately gravitate towards it. Because, hello……berries are healthy. Er go, Mixed Berry Cobbler = super healthy, right? Just let me have this one, OK? Regardless of whether it’s “healthy” (OK fine, it’s not healthy, but who cares) there’s no arguing how delicious it is. And let’s not forget how easy it is to make. You’ll have a super happy crowd when you serve this up at your next BBQ or dinner party, I pinkie promise!

Ingredients

(plus vanilla ice cream for serving!)

How to make it

Into a large bowl add all of the filling ingredients: berries, 3/4 cup sugar, fresh lemon juice, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir gently to combine everything together. Pour the fruit filling into a square baking dish or 9-inch pie dish. 

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Next, in another large bowl, combine all of the topping ingredients: flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar, kosher salt, and melted unsalted butter. Stir together with a rubber spatula until the mixture just starts to come together. It will have a similar consistency to wet sand. 

Form the dough into small rounds about 1/4 inch thick, but no need to be precise. Top the fruit filling with the dough rounds, overlapping where necessary to make it all fit in the dish. Any leftover dough crumbs can be sprinkled on top.

Put the baking dish/pie dish on a foil-lined baking sheet, then bake for 40-45 minutes. The crust should be golden brown. 

Remove from oven and let cool for at least 30 minutes before serving. Optional: top with vanilla ice cream!

    1. Hi Michelle! Cornstarch is for thickening while baking powder is meant to make things rise, so they won’t do the same thing. But you can sub flour for cornstarch if that works for you! Flour is also a good thickening agent. Hope this helps 🙂
