What Goes In Berry Cobbler?
This yummy fruit cobbler uses your favorite berries, whether they’re fresh or frozen. Check the recipe card at the bottom of the post for full ingredient amounts.
- Fresh berries – Use your favorite kind or a combination of them!
- Granulated sugar – Feel free to use light brown sugar instead.
- All-purpose flour – Don’t use bread or cake flour for this.
- Pie dough – Try my Homemade Pie Crust, but you can use your own recipe too.
- Butter – I prefer unsalted butter. If you use salted, remove the salt in the rest of the recipe.
- Ground cinnamon
- Vanilla ice cream
Can I Use Frozen Berries?
Absolutely! Allow the berries to thaw fully and then drain them to keep the cobbler from having too much moisture. Never add the berries straight from the freezer to any dessert or batter because they’ll make things very watery.
How To Make Berry Cobbler
This is easy recipe that comes together very quickly. Make sure you have all your ingredients ready to go.
- Prepare The Berries: Toss together berries, sugar, flour and salt and pour into baking dish.
- Crust: Cut the pie dough into 2-inch squares and arrange on top of the berries. Brush the pie dough with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
- Bake: Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is deep golden and berry mixture is bubbly. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly.
- Serve: Serve cobbler warm with a big scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.
How to Store & Reheat Leftovers
Once fully cooled, refrigerate the berry cobbler in an airtight container for up to 3 days. You can also keep it in the baking dish, but away from any strong-smelling foods like onions to avoid the transfer of odors.
Reheat it in the microwave for up to a minute or until warm. If you’re reheating large portions, do it in the oven. Set it to 350°F and heat it for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Can I Freeze Homemade Fruit Cobbler?
Yes, but it needs to be frozen before baking for best results. If you freeze it after it’s baked, the pie dough will soften too much once thawed.
Assemble the cobbler in a baking dish and then wrap it with plastic wrap twice. Then wrap it in foil once. Freeze it for up to 3 months. When ready to bake, remove the wrapping and pop it into the oven straight from the freezer. Add 15-20 minutes of extra baking time or until nice and golden.
