Old Fashioned Berry Cobbler

Looking for a delicious dessert that’s easy to make? Look no further than this homemade Old Fashioned Berry Cobbler! In only 10 minutes of prep time, you’ll have a mouth watering cobbler that will become your favorite treat. There’s something special about making it by hand and savoring every bite. So let’s get started and create the best cobbler of your life!

Fresh or Frozen Berries?

While we prefer using fresh berries for our cobbler, you can definitely use frozen ones too. Just keep in mind that the end result may be slightly runnier due to the extra moisture when thawed. To balance this, simply double the amount of cornstarch in the recipe when using frozen fruit.

Customize with Your Favorite Fruit

Not a fan of berries? No problem! You can easily substitute three pounds of the fresh fruit of your choice. Just make sure to prepare it beforehand by peeling, slicing, or pitting as needed.

The Great Crust Debate

The question of whether cobbler should have a bottom crust is a topic of hot debate. Traditionally, cobblers have a fruit bottom and are topped with a sweet biscuit dough or have a more cake-like consistency. Some people insist on having a bottom crust, but it’s not part of the traditional recipe.

Cobbler vs. Crisp

Is there a difference between cobbler and crisp? Absolutely! A cobbler is topped with a batter, while a crisp is topped with a crumbly mixture usually made with flour, cereal (like oatmeal), butter, sugar, and sometimes nuts. Both are absolutely delicious in their own unique ways.

Adjust the Recipe to Your Needs

If you’re not ready to make a large batch of cobbler, no worries! You can easily halve all the ingredients in this recipe and make a 9×9 pan instead. It’s all about making it work for you.

Storing and Reheating Tips

Once your cobbler has cooled, cover it and store it in the refrigerator for up to five days. It’s also perfectly tasty when enjoyed cold. When you’re ready to reheat, simply scoop a serving onto a plate or bowl and microwave on high in 30-second increments until warmed through.
