Cobbler Recipes - A collage of favorite cobbler recipes.

Cozy and Comforting

I realize not everyone likes warm fruit in their desserts, but that’s everything I love about cobbler! Always filled with fruit, and topped with a buttery crumb or crisp, cobblers are perfectly likable.

They’re so cozy and comforting, whether it’s summertime when the fruit is at its prime or a chilly fall evening. Pair it with a cold cup of milk, or warm hot chocolate, or top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert perfection.

3 main ways to cook cobbler

Cobblers can be cooked in a baking pan in the oven, in the crockpot, or dutch oven. In general, here are the basic direction on how to use each method: 

  • Oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a standard baking dish with cooking spray, and add cobbler. Bake until golden brown and bubbly.
  • Crock pot. A crock pot can be used, but the topping doesn’t bake up as crisply as it does in the oven. Layer the ingredients. Cook on high for 2 hours, or on low for 4 hours. During the last hour, partially uncover the pot to let the excess moisture evaporate. 
  • Dutch oven. Heat 45 charcoal briquettes, until glowing and white. Add the cobbler ingredients to the cast iron pot. Place the oven on top of 15 briquettes. Place the remaining 30 briquettes on top of the pot. Let the cobbler cook for about 10 minutes. Rotate the pot halfway clockwise. Rotate the lid in the opposite direction. This will redistribute the heat so that the cobbler will bake evenly. Cook for another 20 minutes until golden and bubbly.

Cobbler Recipe Tips

Cobblers, crumbles, and crisps are very similar to each other. They are typically filled with some type of fruit, but the topping is what differentiates one from another.

  • Cobblers have a biscuit or cake-like crust on top. It is generally a mixture of all-purpose flour, sugar, and butter.
  • Crumbles are topped with an oat-less crumb topping.
  • Crisps are topped with a crumb topping that includes oats.

Make ’em mini. Easily make individual desserts by dividing the ingredients into individual ramekins. Bake at the recommended temp, but for less time. 

Thicken the cobbler. Cooking the dessert until it bubbles is important, the bubbling helps to thicken it. It will also continue to thicken as the dessert cools. If you are worried that the recipe will be too runny, toss the fruit in 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch before mixing up your recipe. 

Toppings. I love serving cobbler in a bowl with a generous scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream or a dollop of Whipped Cream. You can also add a yummy Caramel or butterscotch drizzle or sprinkle coconut or chopped nuts.

Soggy cobbler. Don’t completely cover the fruit with the topping. Add the batter in dollops, leaving space between them. This will allow areas for steam to escape, otherwise it gets trapped, causing the cobbler to be soggy.

Doneness. The cobbler is done when the topping turns golden brown, and the filling is bubbly. If you have a probe thermometer, insert it into the center. The filling should reach 200°F.

All about the fruit!

A great thing about fruit cobblers, crisps, and crumbles is that you can often substitute one fruit with another, without having to adjust the other ingredients.

Keep your favorite recipe and use fresh fruit, frozen fruit, and even canned fruit (canned peaches are especially delicious).

Frozen fruit is great because you can stock up on fruit while it’s in season, at a good price, and then store it in the freezer for delicious desserts year-round. Be sure to thaw and drain excess juices before using.

A few of my favorite fruits to use include:

  • stone fruit: peaches, apricots, and cherries
  • apples (peeled and sliced)
  • berries: blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries

Storing Info

STORE. Cobbler can be kept at room temperature for a couple of hours but for longer storage cover it and keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days.

FREEZE. These desserts are best when freshly baked, but can be frozen. Allow the dessert to completely cool. Wrap with plastic wrap and again with foil, and freeze for 3 months.

To reheat. Thaw if applicable. If you’re on the go, or in a hurry, you can easily use the microwave to reheat the dessert. Otherwise, heating it in the oven will help crisp up the topping. Set the oven to 350°F and heat for 10-15 minutes, or until hot. Tent a piece of foil over the cobbler to keep the top from burning while it reheats.

I included both cobblers and crisps in this list, because they’re essentially the same! Crisps typically have oats in the crumble topping, while cobblers do not.
