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:
- 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
- 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)
- 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!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Get out a dish for baking the cobbler and butter it. I used an 8×8 ceramic dish.
Rinse and strain the fruit.
Chop any fruit that needs to be chopped. I only needed to chop the strawberries.
Add sugar and cornstarch to fruit and mix together.
Put fruit in the buttered dish and set aside.
Mix together flour, baking power, sugar, and salt.
Add in cubed butter and mix together with hands, then add heavy cream or milk until sticky.
Scoop spoonfuls of dough and place on top of the fruit.
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.
Place the cobbler in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the crust is a light golden brown.
Cool cobbler for about 30 minutes.
Make icing and pour over crust then add sprinkles.
Enjoy this yummy treat that’s perfect for a 4th of July party or BBQ 🙂
