Blueberry Cobbler

Fresh or frozen blueberries beneath a buttermilk biscuit topping. Serve it warm from the oven with a scoop of ice cream. A true comfort dessert for the fall.

Berries:
-5 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries
-2/3 cup sugar
-3 tbsp corn starch
Place all ingredients in a microwaveable bowl. Heat for 3 minutes stirring once half way through. You just want to get them hot, but not bubbling. Pour hot berries into a 8" square pan or deep dish pie plate.

Biscuit topping
-1 cup flour
-1/3 cup sugar
-2 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp salt
-3 tbsp butter
-1/2 cup buttermilk (you can use regular milk)
Measure dry ingredients into bowl. Cut in cold butter until crumbly. Add milk all at once and mix with a fork until moistened. Drop by spoonfuls over hot berries. Bake at 425ยบ for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy.

  1. Dumb question, why do you microwave the berries...is it to disolve the sugar?

  2. That's a good question! The reason I heat the berries in the microwave is that they take longer to heat and thicken than the topping does to bake. If you don't have a microwave, use your preheated oven and put the berries in while you make the topping. Kathy

  17. Made this as dessert to take to the field while combining the men loved it. I will make this again. I had a peach that needed to be used so I peeled and diced it, also added a bit of cinnamon. Great dessert.

    1. So sorry to hear this. Was the biscuit not baked through? I hope you try it again.....I read the other comments and see that others have had great success. If you try it again let me know if you have better success. I'm not sure what to suggest to you.
