Oh hello Blueberry Skillet Cobbler with Ice Cream!
This seems very fitting for today because the minute I hit publish on this blog post, I’m hoping in a car and going BLUEBERRY PICKING!!! I’m up in Seattle for the weekend and my parents and I are going to a blueberry farm and we’re not leaving until we have 40 lbs of blueberries to bring home. We’ll be making cobblers, jam, galettes, throwing them into salads, making blueberry BBQ sauces and just eating them plain. It’s game time guys. Big things are ahead.
So if you have an abundance of blueberries on hand, or see them at your market for like pennies on the dollar, GET ALL OF THEM. And then whip up this Blueberry Skillet Cobbler with Ice Cream because it’s the right thing to do. The biscuit dough is beyond, you’ll want to eat it just straight out of the skillet. I make mine with sour cream, but you could easily get a little jazzy and use creme fraiche. Your call!
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, grated
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sour cream
- 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 cups fresh blueberries
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
- Vanilla ice cream for serving
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add butter; using your fingertips, incorporate until only small lumps remain. Gently mix in sour cream and knead until a biscuit-like dough forms.
- Combine the flour, sugar, berries, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a large bowl. Toss to combine. Pour into a medium sized skillet. Tear the biscuit dough into pieces and scatter over berries leaving some of the blueberries exposed.
- Transfer the cobbler into the oven and bake until juices are thick and bubbling and topping is cooked through and golden brown, about 45-50 minutes. Let cool for at least 1 hour. Scoop ice cream on top and serve.
