Blueberry Cobbler

Blueberry Cobbler

Blueberry cobbler is a summer staple for a reason. Who can resist juicy, bubbly fruit baked under a layer of cream biscuits? Not to mention the contrast of warm cobbler with cold, creamy ice cream! It's irresistable. 

The best summer desserts are easy recipes. Recipes just like this one that don't take you away from the action for long, recipes that don't require hours in the kitchen. Recipes like Strawberry Refrigerator Cake, Almond Peach Dump Cake, and Kahlua-Coffee Ice Cream Dream Cake.

Blueberry Cobbler

What sets this recipe apart is - VANILLA. Vanilla and blueberries are a beautiful pairing. Here, I add vanilla extract to the fruit layer and vanilla bean paste to the cream biscuit dough. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and it's a vanilla trifecta! 

OR, OR!!!!!!! Hear me out. Serve this for breakfast! Spoon Greek yogurt into a bowl. Top with warm blueberry cobbler. Y'all. Breakfast of champions! 

What's the deal with vanilla bean paste? 

You can read more about vanilla bean paste in a post I wrote for The Pioneer Woman a few years ago. It's not a "paste" per se, as we might think of sticky paste or anchovy paste, but it's more like an extract. It just happens to be loaded with flecks of vanilla bean seeds that not only flavor food but add those gorgeous vanilla flecks. 

You can absolutely use vanilla extract in a 1:1 ratio in its place.

For the cobbler, you'll start with fresh blueberries. Truth: I don't like fresh blueberries raw, but BAKED blueberries are another story altogether. Frozen can be substituted here; just be prepared to bump up the baking time.

You'll stir the blueberries together in a skillet with sugar, cornstarch, lemon, and vanilla, and let that rest while you make the biscuit topping. 

grated butter for baking

The biscuits come together in a flash! One tip for making them is to freeze the butter, then grate it into the dough (instead of using a pastry cutter). The little pieces of butter are easy to distribute evenly in the flour.

Dollop the dough onto the blueberries. A large cookie scoop makes quick work of this. Just press the scoops down a bit with the back of a spoon to spread it a bit. You do want some blueberries peeking through. 

Add turbinado sugar or sparkling sugar and bake. Literally, it's ready for the oven in about 15 minutes.
