Easy Blueberry Cobbler Recipe
Yes, blueberries are amazing and put into a cobbler they're way delicious, but our family's FAVORITE way to eat this summer dessert is with a cookie dough crust!
It's a family tradition to go out and pick as many blueberries as we can once they are in season. And when I say as many, I mean like 20-30 pounds of them! We have a little local farm about 15 minutes from our house that has super good berries that can't be beat! I think our daughter eats more than she picks...good thing they don't weigh her before and after 🙂
We don't stop at blueberries. Oh, no. We pick every type of berry that's in season. I made this easy Bisquick Strawberry Shortcake Recipe with our strawberries that we also picked this season
It's wonderful to freeze the berries to use throughout the winter, but once...well, maybe twice or three times before they're all eaten or frozen, we have to make a blueberry cobbler. This recipe is always a hit when we share it with friends, too.
Unlike crisps, which can be on the dry side, cobbles are full of juicy fruit goodness. Cobblers overall are pretty easy to make. Place some delicious fruit (again, you can use frozen or fresh) in a bowl with some sugar, vanilla and cornstarch to thicken the fruit and then make a topping.
The key is the kind of topping. The thing that makes this the best ever is sugar cookie dough. It takes just a minute to put a handful of ingredient in a bowl and mix them into a batter for the topping, but it's well worth it!
Blueberry Cobbler with Cookie Dough Crust
- ½ cup flour
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- 8 tbsp butter
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 large egg yoke
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 2 pint fresh blueberries
- 2-3 tsp cornstarch
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- To prepare blueberry filling, combine all ingredients in a bowl to use in the cobbler recipe.Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and then set aside.
- Beat butter and sugar until fluffy on medium high with an electric mixer.
- Beat in egg yoke and vanilla until mixed thoroughly. Stir in dry ingredients until just combined.
- Place fruit mixture into an 8-inch square baking pan or 9-inch round deep dish pie plate. Drop cookie dough topping evenly over fruit mixture. Try to make sure the cookie dough isn't touching.
- Bake until golden brown, 45-55 minutes. Place a piece of tin foil over the cobbler if cookie dough gets too brown before it's done baking. Serve warm. Pairs well with vanilla ice cream.
- Although we enjoy this Blueberry Cobbler a lot during the summertime, it can be made with frozen blueberries anytime. We just have a little obsession with berry picking because there's nothing better than fruit picked at the peak of freshness!
