How To Make Cobbler Mini-Sized
Cobbler is one of the simplest desserts to scale down to mini size! Plus they’re so much fun to serve at parties and get-togethers when they’re personal-sized.
Rather than baking in a 9×13 or cast iron, we’re going to use 8 oz ramekins for baking these mini cobblers.
Can I Use Frozen Fruit?
Yes! Frozen rhubarb and peaches both work great with this recipe.
We recommend thawing the fruit beforehand and then proceeding with the recipe as usual.
Tips for Baking Perfect Mini Cobblers
- Bake the fruit filling first – baking the rhubarb/peach filling before adding the topping helps get a jumpstart on softening the fruit and prevents the topping from getting soggy.
- Crumble topping in bite-sized pieces over fruit – use your fingers for this part! You want small pieces of the biscuit-like topping evenly distributed over the fruit filling.
- Sprinkle topping with extra sugar – optional, but it adds a delightful sweet crunch to these cobblers!
- Bake cobblers at a high temp – these cobblers will only take around 15-20 minutes to bake the topping and finish off baking the fruit filling.
What To Serve with Peach Rhubarb Cobblers
Our favorite way to serve these cobblers is warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream! Homemade whipped cream is also delicious scooped on top of individual cobblers.
If you’re not a fan of toppings, you can just leave them off! These cobblers are definitely delicious enough on their own.
I’m definitely unashamedly in the ice cream club when it comes to the topping game for these cobblers.
I’m tellin’ ya, the warm, juicy fruit filling, the sweet flaky biscuits, and the rich ice cream melting into all the cracks is EVERYTHING!
It’s pure summer in every bite and you’re going to absolutely love it. Cheers to cobbler season yet again upon us!
