Sooooo I have a thing for fruit and cheese.

Skillet Blueberry Cobbler with a Cheddar Biscuit Crust I

I just LOVE it. Straight up fascinated with it. Love the combination constantly. There really isn’t a fruit and cheese combo that I can’t get behind, but now that I’m considering bananas… things are weird. But still – banana cheesecake. Always works.

Plus, it’s not that odd or different considering the other things I’ve combined blueberries with: basil, bacon, breakfast… lots of b’s.

Last summer I made a blueberry cheddar dip that freaked a ton of you out but is probably one of my favorite snacks to date. I know it sounds strange… but trust me. I don’t think I steer you wrong unless you hate sprinkles, good Whitney Houston music and things with minimal green vegetables.

The fascination started with that dip. It led me to create an apple/white cheddar dessert (no, not a pie) for the cookbook and since then, I’ve just wanted to make tons of things with fruit and cheese. I think berries are one of my favorites to use because they just… BURST. They explode in the oven and turn things a pretty color and are just perfect.

I’m so very attracted to them right now.

Might have made a pizza with them. Maybe. I’m actually so annoyed with myself that I only make tacos and pizza. Like why can’t I think of anything else? Because I’m selfish and only want to eats things stuffed inside a tortilla or piled on top of a garlic crust.

Life is so hard.

Two summers ago I threw strawberries in a skillet and made a cobbler – and I don’t know what it is but things are better in a skillet than a dish. They are different.

Oh. Also, I completely justify my dislike of vegetables with my obsession with fruit. I mean, THAT is balance. Do you even know how many antioxidants I consume? Yeah. And that doesn’t even count the chocolate and wine.

Skillet Blueberry Cobbler with Cheddar Biscuits

Yield: serves 4 appropriately, 2 obnoxiously

Total Time: 45 minutes


3 cups blueberries
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
vanilla ice cream for serving

cheddar biscuit topping
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into pieces
2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, freshly grated
7-8 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, toss the blueberries with the sugar, flour, salt and cinnamon and add them to a 6 or 8-inch oven-safe skillet.

In a larger bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in the butter and mix with a fork, pastry blender or your fingers until the butter is in crumbs and pieces. Add in the grated cheese, then stir in the milk and vanilla extract until a dough has come together but is just combined. Spoon the dough on top of the blueberries.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the topping is set and the blueberries are juicy and bursting. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.

I also have a fascination with putting things on plates that are too small. How many of you are going crazy at that mess?

    Oh man. And I just went to Costco and they didn’t have blueberries. This looks worthy of two gold stars. Make that three.

    Wow! I have blueberries in my fridge and I think this cobbler is going to have to happen! The pictures are singing to me. Cobblers are normally savoury here in the UK, so I’m excited to try this and surprise my boyfriend.
    Love the blog,
    Thanks from across the pond!

    Fruit and cheese is AMAZING! Grilled cheese with cheddar and strawberry jam is delicious! Not that I would even try that combination or anything…. ;)

    Looks AMAZING — how should I tweak the recipe if I want to try with apples instead of blueberries?


    • Jessica — August 16th, 2013 @ 12:30 pm

      i’d prob chop up 2-3 large apples, and maybe double the sugar/flour mix with the fruit since apples aren’t as juicy as blueberries? let me know if you try!

    We had company last night and this recipe came yesterday in the mail serendipitously! *yeah, not a real word, but it works!*

    I doubled the recipe and used half frozen blueberries and half frozen blackberries. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!

    Thank you. Thank you. This is a new favorite recipe. Easy and really really yummy.

    Hello! My name’s Jessica, and every week on my food blog, Floptimism, I write a post called the Weekend Wrap-Up where I share some of my favorite web finds from the past week.

Thank you for such incredible work, and enjoy your weekend!
