Classic blueberry cobbler topped with rustic biscuits and lots of whipped cream. Learn how to make the best-ever, country-style blueberry cobbler with this super-simple, yet irreplaceable summer recipe!
I’m still clinging to summer recipes you guys, cause HELLO, it is still August and we still have a few weeks left before pumpkin takes over the food blogging planet.
Disclosure: I LOVE pumpkin with every ounce of my soul, but I’m still resisting the heavy pull that fall food has on me and I’m TRYING to wait til September to share my first fall recipes.
Spiced apple pie….pumpkin pudding….hot apple cider…
*shakes self* STOP. FOCUS here. We’re still in summer, peeps and let’s make the most of what we have left. With blueberries.
Because nothing speaks summer desserts better than blueberries. Or a blueberry cobbler in this case.
The best cobbler ever. As in the BEST thing that’s ever been in my face and soon-to-be YOUR face. I know that’s a pretty big claim, but seriously you guys: This blueberry cobbler is the real deal.
It’s what every blueberry dream is made out of. Gooey blueberry filling….warm, tender biscuits…mountains of whipped cream….gahhh!
I’ve come to the conclusion that summer needs to stay around forever.
Cause, well you know…
“Winter’s a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put me in summer and I’ll be a…….HAPPY Sarah!”
Sorry. You know I had to say that. 🙂 Frozen on the brain 24/7—it’s awesome. NOT!
Anywho, I’ll be a happy Sarah as long as I have this blueberry cobbler in my face. Like now for example. Better grab another bowlful. 😀
Or just faceplant into the screen. That could work too….
No joke though, guys. This really is the best mid-summer/almost-end-of-summer dessert you’ll ever find. Perfect way to use up those last summer blueberries, too!
Too bad I never actually have any leftover blueberries. 🙁
Just one spoonful of this cobbler, warm from the oven with piles of whipped cream on top was enough to make my head spin. Then obv, I had to have another bowlful.
I get the feeling my family wasn’t really impressed with my sharing skills the last time I made (and ate) this cobbler.
This cobbler is SO easy to whip up too, as you’ll find with most of my summer desserts. Just make the filling. Whip up those biscuits. Bake ‘er up. And EAT ‘er up.
Warm from the oven. It’s a MUST to eat any cobbler warm from the oven, while the filling is still hot and juicy and the biscuits are still super-soft. Swoon-city.
P.S. Whipped cream on top of this cobbler is NOT optional.
P.P.S. Vanilla ice cream is a worthy sub.
Pick one or the other though. I’m not choosy.
You NEED to try this cobbler while fresh blueberries are still around. The title “best ever” doesn’t lie. Just ask my waistline and my soon-to-be-too-small skinny jeans. 😉

I’m with you, Sarah! I can’t wait to make everything apples and pumpkins, but I’m not sharing just yet. I want summer to last as long as possible! And this definitely looks like the best blueberry cobbler. Your pictures are flawless! I could go for a big ‘ole scoop of this for breakfast, with some vanilla ice cream!
Yea! I am SO glad I’m not the only one who’s hanging on to August still! 😉 And I’m totally loving your idea of having this for breakfast with ice cream. I think I may join you on that one. 😀

Okay, first of all, I’m also doing my best to resist the pull of Fall foods. I had to open a can of pumpkin last week to make a recipe for another site that won’t go up til Fall, and now, all I want is everything Autumn-inspired, ahhh!
Second, this cobbler is UH-MAZING! I want 3 servings of it all at once 😀
Hahaha! Never underestimate the pull of fall foods! And oh, I just bought two of my first cans of pumpkin but STILL haven’t opened them yet! Soon, soon. 🙂
I like how you’re thinking 3 servings at once too! Genius.
Olivia - Primavera Kitchen says
Sarah, I am with you we are still in August so please keep posting your awesome summer recipes like this one! I really enjoy it 😉
Totally agree, Olivia! Bring on the summer food still! 🙂
I’m definitely resisting the fall foods too, but I’ll have a few months to devote to pumpkin and fall soon! This cobbler looks incredible and those biscuits? To die for! Pinning this one.
That’s what I figure too, Danielle! We have basically like 3 months solid of all things pumpkin and apple, so there’s no need to rush into it. LOL. Thanks for pinning the cobbler, girl!
Lindsey @ American Heritage Cooking says
I wouldn’t share this cobbler either! Way to stay strong with the summer desserts! I’m trying not to think about pumpkin season mostly because I have zero pumpkin posts planned. I am still stuck on summer produce – probably because its 100 degrees down here!
The main reason I’m probably having such a tough time resisting fall’s pull is because I have about a 2 mile-long list of fall recipes I want to try this year! LOL. Also, I just broke down and bought two cans of pumpkin that are BURNING hole in my mind the longer they sit in the pantry. LOL.
And eeee! We’re supposed to hit 100 degrees today with full-on humidity!
I am getting a little excited for fall….but I am SO GOING TO MISS SUMMER. Must eat all the cobbler now, while I still can.
Totally! Stuff your face with blueberry cobbler while ‘ya still can, I say! 😉
Kelly // The Pretty Bee: Cooking & Creating says
Mmmmm…this looks so good! I am hanging on to summer still, fall is great, but I do love my berries and corn and fresh everything that summer brings! 🙂
Ahh YES! Exactly! Nothing can beat the freshness that comes with summer. 🙂
Arpita@ TheGastronomicBong says

Kristi @ Inspiration Kitchen says
I love blueberries, and I love cobbler. So, I can’t think of a better treat!
This cobbler sounds RIGHT up your alley, Kristi!
I was just thinking that summer is almost over and there are so many summer recipes I still want to make! I better get cooking! I am really looking forward to carving those pumpkins though! Blueberries are my favorite baked dessert fruits and cobblers are pretty much the best things ever!! Load me up with a huge bowl of this topped with a gallon of vanilla ice cream please!!
IKR? So many recipes on my summer-list that never ended up getting made either….Sadness. :'( And I’m liking the sound of topping this cobbler with a gallon of ice cream. Sounds totally perfect. LOL. Thanks, Izzy! Have a great Friday, girl. 🙂
