Two Peas and Their Pod: Mixed Berry Cobbler Recipe

Mixed Berry Cobbler Recipe

My dad was visiting from Illinois last week. We really enjoyed having him around. He insisted on celebrating Thanksgiving while he was in town. It is his favorite holiday-good food, football, and family. We designated Saturday as our Thanksgiving and cooked up a feast.

I only have one oven so we woke up early on Saturday and started preparing the big meal. On the menu: turkey, sage stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, fresh cranberry orange sauce, spinach salad with pomegranate/oranges, roasted vegetables, potato rolls, and mixed berry cobbler for dessert. Wow, that is a lot of food! I got tired just typing it out. We were in the kitchen all day. It was fun though, I love cooking with my dad.

I don't even like Thanksgiving foods-I don't eat meat, not a stuffing or mashed potato fan, etc. but I still had a great time with my family. I really enjoyed the salad, roasted veggies, and my dad's potato rolls are the BEST! If you are looking for a good roll recipe for your turkey day, try my dad's:)

Josh requested berry cobbler for dessert, I think he is sick of all of my pumpkin creations:) I used frozen berries-blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries from Costco. The cobbler dough was easy to mix up. I love rustic desserts, nothing fancy, but still extremely tasty. I topped the cobbler with vanilla ice cream and no one complained about not having anything pumpkin:)

If you are looking for a dessert to please your friends and family, try my berry cobbler this year.

Our feast was a success. The food was good, but spending time with my family was the best part. Thanks to everyone that has been keeping my family in your thoughts and prayers. My little nephew's surgery went well, but he is still struggling. We really appreciate your love and support.

Mixed Berry Cobbler

1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. lemon zest
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
7 cups mixed berries, I used frozen (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries)
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 tsp. lemon zest
Fresh lemon juice
Turbinado sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9 by 13 baking dish with cooking spray.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
In the bowl of a mixer, mix the butter, sugar, and 1 tsp. of lemon zest until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until smooth. Scrape down the sides if necessary. On low add about half of the buttermilk, stir and add in half of the flour. Add in the rest of the buttermilk and then the rest of the flour mixture. Mix just until combined. Don't over mix.

Put the berries in the baking dish. Add the lemon zest and spritz the berries with fresh lemon juice. Next, add the sugar and cornstarch. Stir everything together in the baking dish.

With a spoon, drop the cobbler dough onto the berries. The dough will be sticky. Sprinkle the dough with the turbinado sugar.

Bake the cobbler for about 45 minutes, until the berries are bubbling and the dough is golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes and then serve. It is best with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Wow, sounds like a wonderful family meal! I'm not a turkey eater either, don't really see what all the hype is about. I love seeing a berry dessert this time of year, it's so refreshing, and makes me happy to hear that frozen berries work well for this type of dish. Looks delish!
