Best Ever Blueberry Cobbler with Cookie Dough Crust
Yes, fresh blueberries are amazing and put into a cobbler they’re way delicious, but our family’s FAVORITE way to eat this summer dessert is with a cookie dough crust! You have to try this amazing recipe for Blueberry Cobbler with Cookie Dough Crust and let me know what you think!
It’s a family tradition to go out and pick as many blueberries as we can once they are in season. And when I say as many, we mean like 20-30 pounds of them!
We have a little local farm about 15 minutes from our house that has super good berries that can’t be beaten! I think our daughter eats more than she picks…good thing they don’t weigh her before and after 🙂
We don’t stop at blueberries. Oh, no. We pick every type of berry that’s in season. I made this Mixed Berry Jam with some of the blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries we picked this year and this Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar (with video) with our strawberries. We LOVE fresh berries! So sweet and delicious!
Blueberry Cobbler with Fresh Berries
It’s wonderful to freeze the berries to use throughout the year, but once…well, maybe twice or three times before they’re all eaten or frozen, we have to make this blueberry recipe.
This dessert is always a hit when we share it with friends, too.
Unlike fruit crisps, which can be a little on the dry side, cobbles are full of juicy fruit goodness.
Cobblers overall are pretty easy to make. Place some delicious fruit (again, you can use frozen or fresh) in a bowl with some sugar, vanilla, spice, and cornstarch to thicken the fruit and then make a topping.
The key is the kind of topping. The thing that makes this the best ever is sugar cookie dough. It takes just a minute to put a handful of ingredients in a bowl and mix them into a batter for the topping, but it’s well worth it!
Tip: This recipe can easily be doubled if you’re baking for a crowd. Just use 1 large egg and double the rest of the ingredients.
Steps for Making a Cookie Dough Cobbler Recipe
Place all the ingredients for your blueberry filling in a large bowl and mix. Now, it’s time to make the amazing cookie dough crust. After preheating your oven, place your dry ingredients in a bowl, mix, and set aside.
Now, beat your butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk and vanilla until mixed thoroughly. Stir in dry ingredients until just combined.
You have the makings of one delicious sugar cookie!
Finally, place fresh fruit mixture into an 8-inch square baking pan or 9-inch round deep baking dish or pie plate. You could add a little lemon zest to the blueberry mixture if you want some added lemon flavor.
Now, drop cookie dough topping evenly over fruit mixture. Try to make sure the cookie dough isn’t touching if you can.
Bake at 375 degrees F. and enjoy!! It’s done when the crust is golden brown.
Yes, right out of the oven is best so plan accordingly!! The best way to enjoy it is with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream!!
Tips for Making Cobbler with Blueberries and a Cookie Dough Topping
- We enjoy this Blueberry dessert a ton during the summertime with fresh berries, but frozen blueberries work great, too. (We just have a little obsession with berry picking because there’s nothing better than fruit picked at the peak of freshness!) No need to thaw, just increase the cornstarch a little.
- This cobbler is best served warm and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream 🙂
