Introduction: How to Make a Very Berry Cobbler
Do you love cobblers? If you do, today I am going to show you how to make a Very Berry Cobbler. For the most part, cobblers are really easy to make, there isn't any complicated ingredients and the results are extraordinary. This berry cobbler is slightly tart from the berries, sweet and crunchy from the biscuit top and creamy and cool from the ice cream. So before I show you how to make this cobbler, run to the store and pick up your favorite vanilla ice cream and then get started on this recipe. The ice cream is a must, it really brings the flavors and textures of this cobbler together. This cobbler has a biscuit top which is a different than the cobbler that rises to the top (both are equally delicious). So if you want your very own homemade Very Berry Cobbler that is better than anything from any restaurant, follow along step by step and watch the video tutorial. Let's make this berry cobbler!

Step 2: Prepare Oven and Ramekins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish or 6 ramekins. I'm choosing to use ramekins because I love the way they look and it's fun to sever these individually. If you are using ramekins, place them on a baking sheet so it is easy to place them in the oven and take them out. This also helps if there is any spillage.
Step 3: The Filling
In a large bowl add mixed frozen berries and frozen strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
Step 4: Mix
Combined together until thoroughly combined. I am using a wooden spoon that I use for berries because it gets stained but you can use a rubber spatula.
Step 5: Add Filling to Ramekins
Spread evenly into prepared baking dishes, make sure there is a little bit of strawberries on each one. My frozen strawberries were a bit big.
Step 6: The Biscuit Top
Add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk until combined.
Step 7: Add Cold Cubed Butter
Using a fork, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal.
Step 8: Add Buttermilk
Slowly add in 1/2 cup buttermilk. Mix until evenly combined.
Step 9: Form Biscuit Top
Take handfuls of dough and gently flatten out. Place dough all over the top of the berry filling.
Step 10: Top Biscuits
Brush the top of the biscuit dough with 1 Tablespoon of buttermilk, then sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
Step 11: Bake
Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the biscuit topping is golden brown.
Step 12: Top With Vanilla Ice Cream!
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
