Mixed Berry Cobblers

These Mixed Berry Cobblers are a wonderful way to enjoy the bounty of summer berries. 

Mixed Berry Cobblers

These summer berry cobblers include a mixture of raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. You can use any mixture of berries you like, and even add some stone fruit if you have it.

I love making cobblers. They are so easy. You get the flavors of fruit pie without having to make pie crust. You just dollop some biscuit dough over the fresh fruit and bake! You can turn any summer fruit into a delicious warm dessert.

My favorites include Johnnycake cobbler, with plums and nectarines and a rustic blackberry cobbler. I've even made a cherry cobbler with a sugar cookie topping. So good.

In this cobbler recipe, the biscuit topping puffs up and bakes into delicious little biscuits on top of the simmering berries. The bottom of the topping will be infused with the flavors of the berries.

When you pull them out of the oven the berry filling will be all bubbly and hot, and may even overflow and drip down the sides of the ramekins. That's part of the beauty of cobblers!

How to make these individual berry cobblers:

First, you toss the berries with some brown sugar, a bit of nutmeg, lemon zest, and lemon juice.

Next, you make the biscuit mixture by processing some flour, sliced almonds (the secret ingredient to their tastiness), baking soda, chilled, butter, and buttermilk. The biscuit mixture may seem a little wet, but don't panic and don't add any extra flour. I promise, you will end up with tender biscuits on top.

Finally, divide the fruit among four ramekins, top it with a bit of butter, scoop the biscuit dough over the fruit and butter, and bake!

Make ahead tips: 

The dough topping can definitely be made in advance. Just process the ingredients, form them into a disk, and wrap it in plastic wrap. You can refrigerate the dough for up to four days.

You can also freeze the dough for up to 3 months.

If you're throwing a dinner party, you can assemble the cobblers just before your guests arrive and place them in the oven. Pull them out of the oven after 30 minutes and set them aside. They will be at just the right temperature when it's time for dessert.

Serve them with with sweetened whipped cream or your favorite ice cream.

Recommended equipment for baking these cobblers:

First, you will need 4 inch ramekins. While not necessary, I also used a tiny cookie scoop for portioning the biscuit dough. 

You can use your standard food processor for mixing the biscuit dough, but I love using my mini food processor. It's so much easier to clean and is great for small batches of dough like this one.
