TWD: Mixed Berry Cobbler

I don’t think I went in to this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Mixed Berry Cobbler, with an open mind. The recipe had so many negative reviews from other members that I was expecting the worst. What I got was a perfectly acceptable dessert. It wasn’t mind blowing, it didn’t wow, but John and his brother gobbled it up pretty quickly. I think we’ve all come to expect perfection from every single recipe in Baking, but the reality is that there are a couple of recipes that are just plain ho hum, and this is one of them.

The problem is, I really wanted this one to be a star. My freezer is constantly full of half empty bags of frozen berries, and this recipe is a great way to use them before they get freezer burned beyond recognition. It’s also a great summery dessert that can be made in the dead of winter, and goodness knows I need that. So even though this one was a bit of a disappointment, I’ll probably keep making variations of it until I get it right. I’m envisioning blueberries and raspberries with vanilla sugar in the crust and the filling for next time.

You can find the recipe posted by Beth of Our Sweet Life or in Baking: From My Home to Yours, which is currently on a sweet sale at Amazon.

    Cobblers are made to play around and everyone has their own personal idea of what’s the best. Keep at it till you get it perfect for you!
