Berry Cobblers
Makes: 8  servings Prep 15 mins Start to Finish 40 mins


  • 3/4 cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup  yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons  sugar
  • 2 teaspoons  finely grated fresh lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt
  • 3 tablespoons  unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup  heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup  plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup  fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon  finely grated fresh lime zest
  • 1 1/4 cups  sugar
  • 7 cups  fresh raspberries or blueberries


Make dough::

1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, zest, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. With fingers or a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cream just until mixture comes together. Gently knead in bowl just until it forms a dough.

Make filling::

2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, juice, and zest until smooth. Add 1 cup sugar and whisk until blended. Gently stir in berries to coat with sugar mixture. Divide berries evenly among 8 ramekins. Top each with 1/8 of dough. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and bake on a cookie sheet until berries are bubbling and top is golden brown and cooked through, about 25 minutes. Makes 8 servings.


How to Top This:
  • Some cobblers have a thin, flaky pastry or cake batter topping, but we prefer the taste, look and texture of the traditional biscuit dough. This dessert is so easy to prepare you'll be able to pop it in the oven in no time.
  • For quick assembly, have all ingredients ready before you start. FYI, adding cornmeal gives the biscuit a crispy texture and golden color.
  • Don't overwork the dough, or it will become tough. Mix gently with your hands until any streaks of flour have disappeared.
  • Pat the dough until 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick, being sure to leave some filling visible so you can check for doneness.
