It’s FALL my friends. That means it’s everything pie, cobbler, pumpkin, gingerbread … oh, the list goes on and I am PUMPED about it. Almost all of my favorite treats are traditionally fall treats.
Although, don’t tell anyone, I still make them all year round. I just don’t advertise it. I don’t want to limit what I can eat to a specific time of year.
Eat what you want!
We just finished picking a ton of blackberries, so the first thing I did was make Gluten-Free Blackberry Cobbler. It’s such a simple dessert, and it only requires a few standard ingredients.
If you don’t have fresh blackberries, don’t fret – you can use frozen blackberries in this recipe as well.
The hero in this recipe is the golden, flaky, biscuit-like crust. It really brings the whole dish together. It’s super satisfying to dip your spoon into a flaky biscuit and scoop a spoonful of blackberry filling up with it.
If you are an ice-cream-lover, I suggest serving up a scoop of vanilla with this Gluten-Free Blackberry Cobbler.
I’ve seen lots of variations of Gluten-Free Blackberry Cobbler. This cobbler recipe has been a family favorite for years. Some cobblers are similar to a cake, with blackberries baked in.
I’m not sure if its a regional thing, like where you grew up, or where your family roots started, but we like biscuits with our cobbler.
If you are just dying to make this cobbler, but you don’t have any blackberries, you can also use other fruits. Peach is a little too sweet for me, but you could use peaches. Also, cherries work really well in cobblers.
I don’t have Ryze flour, what else can I use?
You can use my personal flour blend or Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend in this recipe. Most blends that have a combination of flours and starches work well in this recipe. Just note the texture will be different from blend to blend. I have not tested this recipe with anything other then Ryze and Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend.
What else can I use besides shortening?
You can use cold butter or coconut oil in this recipe instead of the shortening. Depending on the coconut oil used, it may have a slight coconut taste to it. Both coconut oil and butter work but yields slightly different textures in the biscuits.
Can I use regular milk in this gluten-free blackberry cobbler?
Yes. You can use your milk of choice. It won’t change the flavor or the texture unless you use something stronger in flavor like coconut milk.
Can I use frozen blackberries in this gluten-free blackberry cobbler?
Yes. Most grocery stores carry frozen blackberries year round, and some carry mixed frozen berries too. Frozen blackberries work just as well in this recipe. You don’t need to change the baking time.
This recipe is gluten-free, and dairy-free, but you wouldn’t be able to tell from the incredible biscuit topping.
