    Cobbler is the messy sister to pie and is imperfectly delicious.

Black and Blue Berry Cobbler

  • Berry Cobbler is a dessert classic everyone loves! Blackberries and blueberries are topped with a delicious biscuit like dough and baked in ramekins for the perfect single-serving dessert. Serve fresh out of the oven with scoop of ice cream and they are irresistible!

    I'm excited to tell you I have recently partnered with Scotch-Brite Brand, and in the months to come we will be covering clean up after the recipes and around the house!

    This is a very simple dessert, which is easy enough to make about any night of the week, but is fancy enough for company!

    Pies take time (and a bit of talent)...cobblers are so much easier and quicker. For this berry cobbler, I mixed some blueberries in with the blackberries, added a little sugar (I like to keep them tart) and a little flour to soak up some of the juice and divided them up into ramekins. My berry cobbler was topped with a biscuit like dough, which is so much easier than pie crust, and every bit as buttery and delicious.

    Eating a berry cobbler warm from the oven topped with ice cream is ideal. As the ice cream melts, it comes together with the juicy, baked berries on the bottom. The biscuit on top provides a nice buttery compliment to the sweet juicy berries and ice cream.

    **You can also bake them in wide-mouth canning jars, screw on a lid after they cool to take to a picnic, bbq or just keep them in the fridge, for snacking ;)

  • The Clean Up

    Cobblers might be quick and easy to make, but clean up can be another story. With filling steeped over the edges and the non-uniform biscuits, berry cobbler is definitely not a tidy looking dish, now is it? In fact, it can be quite messy if you use a little too much filling, as it can easily bubble over as it bakes.

    I always put pies and cobblers on a baking sheet to catch the drips and keep them from going to the bottom of my oven. No matter how careful you are, you can be pretty certain you will have some messy dishes and pans to clean up after baking fruit cobbler and pie.........but they are SO worth the mess.

    As with all cleaning, I try to get to it as soon as possible. The longer you leave it sit, the harder the clean up. If I remember, I try to line my baking sheet with parchment paper or foil, for easy clean up.

    Thanks to my favorite little cleaning tool, the Scotch-Brite Extreme Scrub Sponge, clean-up can be a breeze. It’s treated to resist bacterial odors, and has 4x the scrubbing power than the next leading brand at removing tough baked-on messes allowing me to clean easier and avoid smelly sponges. A smelly sponge = bacteria. Did you know the kitchen sponge can be one of the biggest sources for germs in the house. YUCK! The Extreme Scrub Sponge features long-lasting antimicrobial product protection against bacterial odors. Now that's a sponge I want in my kitchen!! Scotch-Brite Brand cleaning tools help me get the job done right. And............ clean feels good!
