I did not like this cobbler. This is a first for me, as I have enjoyed all of the recipes we’ve made for TWD so far. I had high expectations for this, and it sure did disappoint.
I’m from South Carolina, so I’ve been eating cobblers ever since I can remember. Most commonly it’s a peach cobbler, but sometimes blueberry (my favorite). I think that I have had some of the best cobbler in my lifetime. So I was interested to find out what this version would be like. I used blueberries and raspberries. It was a lot different from my usual cobbler recipe. This recipe used cream instead of milk, and you cut cold butter into dough before topping the fruit with it. With my other recipe, you melt the butter by putting the butter in the baking dish and then spreading the other dry ingredients on top of that. Then you spoon the fruit over that and during baking, the fruit rises to the top and you have doughy, fruity goodness. Not the case with this version. I found the dough to be way to thick, causing it to not mesh with the fruit like a cobbler should do. The fruit just stuck to the bottom of the dough. So, needless to say, I will be sticking to my old recipe from now on. Hopefully I will get to make it soon and will post it. Even though I was not a fan of this, I still love Dorie and will look forward to baking more of her (usually) delicious recipes. Check out our TWD blog to see how everyone else did with the cobbler, as well as Beth’s blog, Our Sweet Life, who chose this week’s recipe.
