Blueberry Cobbler with Fresh Berries
It's wonderful to freeze fresh berries to use throughout the year. However, you need to make this blueberry recipe at least once, well, maybe twice or three times before berry season is over.
This dessert is always a hit when we share it with friends.
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 blueberry dessert recipe 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, and it's well worth it!
Tip: You can easily double this recipe if you're baking for a crowd. Just use one large egg and double the rest of the ingredients.

How to Make - Step by Step Instructions
Step 1 - Make Filling
Place all the ingredients for your blueberry filling in a large bowl and mix.
Step 2 - Make Topping
Now, it's time to make the amazing cookie dough crust. After preheating your oven to 375 degrees F, place your dry ingredients in a bowl, mix, and set them 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 flour mixture until just combined.
You have the makings of one delicious sugar cookie!
Step 3 - Place Filling in Pan
Finally, place the 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.
Step 4 - Place Cookie Dough on Filling
Now, drop the cookie dough topping evenly over the top of the blueberries. Try to make sure the cookie dough isn't touching if you can.
Step 5 - Bake
Bake at 375 degrees F. (190 degrees C.). and enjoy!! It's done when the crust is crisp and golden brown.
Serving your cobbler right out of the oven is best, so plan accordingly!! One way to enjoy it is with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream!!
Tips & Tricks
- We enjoy this Blueberry dessert a lot during the summertime with fresh berries, but frozen blueberries work great, too. No need to thaw frozen berries, just increase the cornstarch a little.
- If you like a juicier cobbler, use 2 tablespoons of cornstarch instead of 3.
- Yes, you can use store-bought cookie dough instead of making your own.
- This cobbler is best served warm and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream 🙂
You can make this fruit cobbler with blackberries, mixed berries, or peaches. All are equally delicious!
