What makes a cobbler a cobbler?

This is such a great question! The difference between a cobbler and summer’s other quick bake, the crisp, is that cobblers have a buttery biscuit top while crisps have a streusel top. Making biscuits for the top of your cobbler might sound a little more involved, but we’ve made it super simple by using Bisquick™ Original Pancake & Baking Mix.

How do I make Berry Cobbler?

Making a cobbler is so easy! We made ours with raspberries or blueberries. All you do is heat your berries up with lemon juice, corn starch and sugar, so they get thick and sweet, and then drop the biscuit batter on top. It bakes for just 15 minutes!

It comes together quickly, and yet it yields such a pretty dessert. And a scrumptious one! We love how the Bisquick™ biscuit topping turns golden brown and crisp on top but stays buttery soft in the middle to soak up all that sweet, sweet berry juice. It’s heaven.

How should I serve berry cobbler?

A warm berry cobbler topped with whipped cream tastes amazing. Even better? Put a great big scoop of ice cream on your cobbler and let all that cream melt into the berries and soften the biscuit. Either way, a cobbler will always be welcome at a barbecue with family and friends, or any old summer dinner.

P.S. A berry cobbler is also a great finish to a summer brunch. Would we serve it with whipped cream? Oh yes—a little for the cobbler, a little for the coffee cups. Now for the best part: dig in!

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For this berry cobbler recipe, use a medium saucepan (about 2-quart size) and a 2-quart glass baking dish or baking pan.
  • tip 2
    Raspberries and blueberries can be delicate, so you want to store them carefully. Keep them in their original container or spread them out in a dish or pan lined with paper towels before making our Berry Cobbler. Raspberries are especially fragile, so plan to use them within a day or so to avoid moldy berries.
  • tip 3
    For a splashing finish, serve your warm berry cobbler with a pitcher of heavy whipping cream, half-and-half or eggnog. A little shake of ground cinnamon or nutmeg will add just a hint of spicy warmth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we stir just until blended?

Overmixing the dough can make it tough, and you’ll lose some of that light, airy texture that makes biscuits so delicious.

What other fruit can I use in the berry cobbler?

For this particular recipe, we would swap in other summer berries, like blackberries, ollalieberries, marionberries or strawberries.

Of course, you can make a cobbler out of just about any fruit, from sweet cherries to peaches to apples. Looking for more inspiration? Check out our cobbler recipes — there are literally hundreds to choose from!
