For the Berry Filling:

  • 3 cups blueberries
  • 2 1/2 cups raspberries
  • 1 1/2 cups blackberries
  • 1 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 TBS cornstarch
  • 1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Biscuit Topping:

  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 TBS brown sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest (optional)
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 TBS unsalted butter (cold)
  • 1/3 cup + 1 TBS cold buttermilk (divided)
  • 1 TBS coarse sugar (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick spray, and set aside.

For the Mixed Berry Filling:

  • Add the blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla to a large bowl. Gently fold them together to coat the berries in the mixture without smashing them too much.
  • Spread the berry mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan and set aside.

For the Biscuit Topping:

  • Stir the flour, sugars, lemon zest, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.
  • Add the cold butter into the bowl in small cubes.
  • Cut the butter into the flour mixture with two forks, or a pastry cutter, until the pieces are smaller than a pea.
  • Add 1/3 cup of the buttermilk and stir it into the flour mixture, until just combined.
  • Take a few Tablespoons of dough at a time and flatten it out. Lay the pieces on top of the berries, and repeat with remaining dough. Leave some of the berries exposed for a pretty presentation.
  • Brush the dough with the remaining 1 TBS of buttermilk with a pastry brush.
  • Sprinkle the coarse sugar over the top of the dough.
  • Bake the cobbler for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and the berries are bubbly.
  • Let the cobbler cool for at least 10 minutes, then serve.
