Tuesdays with Dorie ~ Mixed Berry Cobbler

17 Comments

Today is my very first post for the Tuesdays with Dorie weekly challenge.

Beth from Our Sweet Life chose the Mixed Berry Cobbler for this week’s challenge.

I was *really* apprehensive about this recipe once I saw that it had a biscuit top. I have NEVER successfully made any kind of biscuits (except from a can) in my whole life. I am biscuit challenged. Well, I plunged into the recipe and I actually did it! I don’t think I rolled out the biscuit thin enough but I was on a roll and felt that if I messed with it too much it would be really tough.

I see this recipe as an old-fashioned cobbler like my Nanas used to make. The consensus at my house is that it is DELICIOUS!!!

I really think this recipe gave me the gumption to keep plugging away at biscuit making. If anyone has any tips, I’d love to hear them πŸ™‚

Here are some pictures of my cobbler:

Happy Cooking!

  1. Welcome and congratulations on your first post with TWD!

    Biscuit tips: make sure to keep the butter cold–don’t let it get too soft. Put your bowl in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes if it seems to be softening up too much.
    Once you add the liquid, don’t overwork the dough.
    A moist dough and a very hot oven (400 or 425 if you’re baking them alone without fruit under them) makes the lightest, fluffiest biscuits.
    Biscuits are fun! And scones (next week’s recipe) are a close relative to them, so you’ll get more practice…

  6. welcome to TWD! I wasn’t a huge fan of the biscuit on the cobbler, but you are right that it was inspiring to make savory biscuits, as I think it would be very nice for that! great point!
