Red white & blue cobbler

This is a new recipe I came across and it has become an instant favorite of mine and the perfect summertime treat! To make this cobbler festive for the July 4th I used strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries to achieve that red white and blue coloring.

Here’s the recipe:

Filling 

  • About 4 cups fruit of your choice (I suggest using fresh fruit because I thought it held up better but frozen fruit does works too)
  • 2 Tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch

Dough

  • 12 tablespoons of cold cubed butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream (or milk if you don’t have heavy cream)

Icing

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of milk

Plus red and blue sprinkles to go on top of the icing  🙂

Here’s how to do it!

Step 10.

I only used half of the dough for my cobbler and wrapped up the other half and froze it. This is great because you have enough dough for two good sized cobblers.

Step 11.

Place the cobbler in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the crust is a light golden brown.

Step 12.

Cool cobbler for about 30 minutes.
