What could be better than a hot berry cobbler with a side of creamy vanilla ice cream? Isn’t your mouth watering? Cobblers are good any time of the year, but it’s such a great holiday dish, don’t ya think? You may want to consider this one for the upcoming holidays. This particular cobbler is a real favorite of mine. I love berries. Sometimes when I make this, I throw in some dried cherries or even cranberries. The cranberries give it such a holiday taste.
I have made this with fresh berries and also with frozen berries. I gotta say….I don’t really see a big difference. So if fresh berries aren’t available, by all means use frozen!
The crust/topping on this cobbler is the same as the one on my peach cobbler that I posted awhile back. If you haven’t tried the peach, you will definitely want to. The crust on this cobbler is amazing. It really is. It’s not one of those puffy, fluffy crusts….blekh, I don’t care for those. This one is just something you’ll have to try. It has a bit of a crackly, sugary, melt in your mouth topping. I will tell you this…I will never make any other cobbler crust. This is my one and only.
Don’t forget to serve it with some good vanilla ice cream!
