8 Weeks of Easy Family Dinners E-Cookbook!
Ripe, juicy berries are topped with a delicious sugar cookie crust and baked until they are piping hot. This sweet treat is perfect for summer, topped with a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
At any given time, if you had asked my dad what his favorite dessert was, it would be fruit cobbler, especially berry cobbler. I’ve been wanting to make one for months and finally got around to it. I added a little twist…instead of a traditional crust style topping, I used sugar cookie mix!
I’ve always loved fruity desserts, but since we don’t have big family gatherings like we used to, there never seems to be a need for them. If you ask my kids though, they think there’s always a need for a yummy dessert so I decided that a few times a month I’m going to create a really spectacular dessert treat, and I’ll be sharing them on the blog, too! I’d love to know what your favorite dessert treat is so I can try it out.
I love that it’s super easy to make, taking just about 10-15 minutes to prepare. The berries are combined with granulated sugar to bring out their natural juices and sweeten them a bit, flour to help thicken the sauce, and a little lemon juice for a little acid to cut the sweetness.
Next comes the super simple topping, which is just a pouch of Sugar Cookie Mix (I use Betty Crocker) combined with some softened butter. The mix will still be a bit dry, and you want it crumbly.
Finally it bakes in a 350 degree oven for just under an hour. The top will be golden brown and the berries underneath will be bubbling up through the cracks. The topping is a bit of a cross between a cobbler and a crisp and it compliments the sweet berries perfectly. It’s best served warm, and with lots of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream!
