Apple Berry Cobbler

This Apple Berry Cobbler was delicious and super easy! The prep time was only 15 minutes and then you just wait for it to bake. I loved that it tastes super fresh and the flavors of the apples and berries shine. The biscuits don’t have a lot of sugar so it balances out the sweet fruit perfectly. 

Apple Berry Cobbler

My family had this when we went to visit my brother. We met at a park because they didn’t want us to come to their house. It wasn’t finished yet apparently and they wanted a big reveal. They actually ended up selling it earlier than they thought though so no one got to see it. So basically they spent all summer building up the reveal and then we never got to see it. It was kind of a bummer. 

Haha, that was a rabbit hole and a half but, the Apple Berry Cobbler actually ended up to be a great picnic dessert. We brought plastic bowls and plates and I just kept the cobbler in the casserole dish. On our way there, we stopped and got a tub of ice cream but realized we didn’t think that through. It was delicious with ice cream but that’s not the most stable dessert in the summer. We should’ve just grabbed whipped cream.

How do you make Apple Berry Cobbler?

Make the Filling: In a large bowl, mix together all the filling ingredients (sliced apples, triple berry frozen fruit, lemon zest (optional), lemon juice, and cornstarch) It works great to slice the apples with a food processor with a slicer blade but you can also just slice them by hand. (Below is a picture of about how thin they should be).

Cut Apples for Cobbler

Make the Biscuit Topping: In a medium bowl or in the bowl of a food processor mix together all the dry ingredients. 

Cutting Butter in with Food Processor: If you are using a food processor (I love this one), add the cubed butter to the bowl and pulse until the pieces of butter are all roughly the size of peas.

Size of Butter for Biscuits

Cutting Butter in with Pastry Cutter: If you are using a Pastry Cutter, Slice through the mixture while turning the bowl. Do this until the butter is also roughly the size of a pea (shown above).

Cutting Butter in By Hand: If you only have your hands that’s fine too. Just grab a handful with one hand, lay your hand flat, then press your other hand against it to flatten the butter. Keep doing this until there are no big chunks of butter. Since you end up making a bunch of little sheets of butter, this kind ends up being a bit more flaky, which is not a bad thing. 

The last thing you do to make the biscuit batter is adding the buttermilk. Pour it all into the flour mixture and with a fork stir it around until it is just barely incorporated. 

Assemble and Bake: Pour the Fruit filling into a casserole dish. If it’s around the size of a 9×13 pan it will be perfect. Then drop the biscuit dough evenly on top of the filling and bake!

And then enjoy with some ice cream or whipped cream or cream……or alone!
