Double Berry Cobbler with Almond Drop Biscuit Topping
Makes 8 to 10 servings
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 3 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1¼ cups sugar, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • ½ cup whole buttermilk
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • Vanilla ice cream, to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together blueberries, blackberries, 1 cup sugar, ¼ cup flour, lemon juice, and extract. Spoon berry mixture into a large enamel-coated cast-iron skillet.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together almond flour, salt, baking powder, remaining ¼ cup sugar, and remaining ¾ cup flour. Using a pastry blender, cut in cold butter until mixture is crumbly.

  1. I’ve made this recipe a bunch of times and every time my husband is thrilled! It’s one of his favorite desserts I make, and I make lots!
    Thank you for sharing this recipe. I originally found it in the magazine and was super bummed because I misplaced or maybe accidentally tossed it and was relieved to find the recipe online.
