Cherry Blueberry & Strawberry Cobbler with Vanilla-Sour Cream Biscuits Recipe


It’s positively berry season here! I found a recipe in Bon Appetite’s desserts baking book for a cherry-lime cobbler with lime biscuits. I didn’t wish to stay with simply cherries. Thus I switched it up slightly to incorporate some contemporary strawberries, blueberries, and in fact, cherries. I had some lemons and bitter cream already, thus I skipped the crème Fraiche plan, and used the bitter cream instead, at the side of lemon juice and zest rather than lime.

Cherry Blueberry & Strawberry Cobbler with Vanilla-Sour Cream Biscuits Recipe

This recipe differs from the standard cobbler. The fruit is all ready during a forged iron pan, and therefore the biscuits are baked separately and placed atop a bowl of a heat berry mixture. I loved having all the various berries in there, and therefore the lemon positively cuts the sweetness. The biscuits had a pleasant lemony tinge and were fantastic to eat on their own, and even higher once that they had soaked up all that berry goodness.

This is a fast and simple dish and ideal for summer and berry season. I’ve additionally been lolloping the berry mixture on high of the strawberry bitter cream ice cream…just wonderful!
