Mixed Berry Cobbler (Dorie Greenspan)
Mixed Berry Cobbler

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie selection was picked by Beth of Our Sweet Life. A perfect summer dessert (that can be made all year) – Mixed Berry Cobbler (page 416 of Dorie’s book).

I used one bag of Trader Joe's Frozen Mixed Berries (blueberry, raspberry and blackberry) and a few more frozen blueberries in order to get 5 cups of berries. Dorie says you shouldn't use too many strawberries in the mix - those guys are too watery. I filled 8 ramekins but could have probably made 10.

I added 1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger and cinnamon each to the dry mixture. In addition, about 3 tablespoons of diced crystallized ginger went into the mix.

I also topped the cobbler with a mixture of sugar, cinnamon and ground ginger. Fresh from the oven, the cobblers had a bit of spillage.

I baked the fruit by itself for 20 minutes, and then popped the biscuit on top for another 25 minutes.

This is delicious warm from the oven...it is worth it to nuke it for a few seconds if you don't have time to warm them in the oven.

Don't forget to check out other Tuesday with Dorie creations! It is always fun to see other people's take. Next week's recipe: Apple Cheddar Scones

P.S. My bad if your blog reader got this twice. I messed up scheduling the posting for 12:01 on Tuesday (hence the name, Tuesdays with Dorie) and it went up to early - man, I caught it within seconds but technology is always faster than me. It is now scheduled correctly, but apologizes if you got it twice.
Pin It!

Spillage is just a part of cobbler baking, I think. I love all the pictures, they're just beautiful.

Looks delicious! Did the dough cook all the way through, even on the bottom? I seem to have a problem with cobblers staying gooey/doughy on the underside, near the berries. It's made me afraid to make cobblers. But yours looks so good... I want to give it a go!

to laura - the bottom wasn't soggy. i think the split cooking (getting the filling hot before sliding on the topping) helps that out. i read about this technique in baking illustrated and decided to give it a shot. you should definitely try cobblers!

Your pictures are so great. So many did people did the individual servings this week, it was a good idea.

That first picture showing the biscuit topping soaking up the berry juice is drool-worthy! Nice job!
