Fresh Blueberry Cobbler

Fresh Blueberry Cobbler

Easy, fresh, spoonable cobbler is great for summer get-togethers! None of the hassle of cutting pie pieces, no chocolate melting all over the place… although a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream is definitely required (melting encouraged).

Bring it along on picnics, to backyard barbeques, to your own porch for a sweet bite after dinner… or the most decadent breakfast to start off your day. Not that we ate cobbler for breakfast or anything.

02 Fresh Blueberry Cobbler

Blueberries are always a favorite, but you can use any fresh berries you want – pick up a big basket, dump them in, and you’re on your way to summertime happiness.

If you’re using strawberries or another larger fruit, give them a rough chop first.
