We used a baker's secret to make this delicious cobbler perfect: Heat the filling before topping it off with the dough.


2 cup(s) blackberries
2 cup(s) strawberries, hulled and halved

1/4 tsp table salt

2 Tbsp cornstarch

1/4 cup(s) sugar

2/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp ground cardamom

1/2 cup(s) buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 400ºF. In a shallow, 2-quart ovenproof dish, stir together berries, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, cornstarch and 1/4 cup of sugar. Bake until hot, about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, prepare topping: In a bowl, stir together flour, 1 teaspoon of sugar, baking powder, baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and cardamom. Stir in buttermilk to form a sticky dough.

  • Remove fruit from oven. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto fruit to form 4 biscuits. Bake until biscuits are golden and fruit is bubbling, about 25 minutes. Allow cobbler to sit for 5 minutes for fruit to firm up before serving. Yields about 1 cup fruit and 1 biscuit per serving.
