Yes, this delicious cobbler needs to be refrigerated. Because it contains eggs, this will keep well in the refrigerator. Be sure to cover it.
Technically it should last 4-5 days refrigerated. In our home.... luckily to last three! It just gets eaten and enjoyed that quickly!
A cobbler is a deep-dish baked fruit dessert with a biscuit or pie dough topping - blueberries, blackberries, peaches - use your favorite! A crisp is similar in that it is also baked fruit with a layer topping - toppings for a crips often include oats or nuts and is streusel-like using flour, sugar and butter.
Yes, you can substitute your favorite fruit! Peach, blackberry, even strawberries or nectarines.
You can use frozen berries. Just be sure to thaw them first and lightly drain them. You'll need four cups of fruit to make this recipe.
Here's one more thing. This recipe is very versatile, you can use a variety of different fruits. Don't have blueberries? Use blackberries, or cherries. Fresh or frozen (thawed) peaches will work too!
Allow frozen berries or fruit to thaw to room temperature.
A splash of vanilla extract (about a teaspoon) to the batter is always a yummy addition!
Refrigerate - allow it to come to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and store leftover cobbler in the refrigerator up to three days. But seriously..... it never lasts long!
Freeze - this can be frozen, but I think the texture is better enjoyed fresh.
- My Grandma's recipe for Old Fashioned Rhubarb Pie - sweet and tart, this is just so yummy!
- Mom's Chocolate Covered Cashew Recipe - rich cashews covered in dark. chocolate and peanut butter chips - YUM!
- Peach Cobbler - you'll love this old fashioned treat!
- Meyer Lemon Curd - sweet and delicious!
- My favorite, Brownie Bundt Cake with strawberries and macadamia nuts, mmm!
Serve this easy dessert with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream of course! That's my favorite part, YUM!

Here in Fresno we're hitting the dog days of summer with warm evening and hot, hot days!
The end of summer also means it's time to enjoy those late summer fruits like blueberries! And boy do I have a treat for you today with this old-fashioned family recipe for Homemade Blueberry Cobbler.
This is my Cousin Sadie's recipe and was passed on to her from her Great Grandma Darnell. I am so proud to share it with you today!
Wouldn't you agree that family recipes are precious? It was so great to share the gumdrop cookies recipe last week and I had a reader write in and suggest that I frame the handwritten recipe and I thought that sounded like such a great idea.
