Ingredients Nutrition

  • 354.88 ml flour
  • 354.88 ml sugar, plus a bit more for sprinkling
  • 177.44 ml unsalted butter, melted
  • 946.36 ml fresh fruit, peeled and cut into chunks


  1. Combine the flour and sugar.
  2. Add the butter, mixing as you go, until the mixture forms a soft dough. It can be slightly crumbly, but you want it to hold together when you squeeze it.
  3. Spray a 9x9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Put the fruit in the dish — you will probably need about 4 cups of berries or chopped fruit. You want to create a thick layer that comes about two inches up the sides.
  5. If the fruit is particularly tart, sprinkle with a light layer of sugar. If the fruit is soft and sweet, you don't need it.
  6. Take the dough by the handful and pat it into disks that are about 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick. Lay them on top of the fruit, continuing with the patties, until it is covered.
  7. Bake the cobbler at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes, until the crust is light golden brown. Let cool slightly, then serve with ice cream.
