Our New Go-to Dessert: Easy Berry Cobbler Bars

By Annalise Sandberg
Created January 10, 2017
Wrap up your next feast with a spring-y sweet made with fresh berries and Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix.

I wait all year for summer berries to become available and then I make the most of it while I can. I serve fresh raspberries, blackberries and blueberries on everything from granola to ice cream, and even enjoy them just by the handful. And of course, I include them in my baking as much as possible: pies, crisps and cobblers to name a few. 

With these cobbler bars, no spoons or bowls are required. You get to enjoy all the flavors of a traditional fruit cobbler, but in a nice little portable package. They’re perfect for summer potlucks and picnics!

For this recipe you’ll need blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, butter, an egg, cornstarch and sugar.


Cut the butter into the sugar cookie mix with a pastry blender or a pair of knives. Then add the egg and mix until incorporated. The mixture will be very crumbly.


In a separate bowl toss the berries with the sugar and cornstarch.


Press half of the sugar cookie mixture into the bottom of a square baking pan. Dump the berry mixture on top, and then sprinkle with the remaining sugar cookie mixture.


Bake until bars are golden, and then let cool completely.


Make a simple icing from powdered sugar and milk and drizzle over the cooled cobbler bars.


Let the icing set before slicing into bars.
