Tuesdays with Dorie – Mixed Berry Cobbler


Tuesdays with Dorie time again. This week’s recipe of Mixed Berry Cobbler was chosen by Beth of Our Sweet Life.


This cobbler recipe was very simple. Just berries (fresh or frozen. Dorie says it doesn’t matter.) on the bottom and a biscuit topping. I used a mixture of frozen blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries since I always have those in the freezer. Even though I added a fair amount of sugar, it was still way too tart for me.

The biscuit topping came together very quickly and was a breeze to roll out. The problem was that it was bland. The only flavor mine had was saltiness. Bleh. You’d think I would’ve learned to read the TWD blog for suggestions before I start a recipe, but I guess I’m just hardheaded. Some of the other TWDer’s added cinnamon or extra sugar to their biscuit topping and said it came out fabulous so I would definitely suggest doing that.

All in all, this was a pretty good recipe. It was very easy to put together and neither the husband or the kid had any complaints. I really can’t ask for more than that.


For the recipe, head over to Our Sweet Life and if you want to see what other TWDer’s thought, check out the blogroll.

    Glad your family liked it, although you were not convinced, as a cobbler newbie I was pleased, perhaps lack of experience?

    I wasn’t a big fan of the topping either. But your cobbler looks delicious!

    It sure looks delicious! Glad your family liked it even if you weren’t completely happy with it. I do think Dorie’s recipe is on the “plain” or “basic” side for a cobbler. I’ve seen recipes with a lot more sugar in both filling and topping and many have some sort of flavoring in the topping as well. I was happy with the sugar level, but then I am very definitely on the “less sweet” side of things!

    Hmmm… salty? That’s odd. Glad your family enjoyed it, and that you’ve found ideas for improving it if you try again. Looking forward to your apple cheddar scones. 🙂
