Blueberry Limoncello Cobbler: Spiked with Limoncello liqueur this blueberry cobbler is a grown up summer treat and twist on a classic.
This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions, bad grammar, and overuse of smiley emoji’s are are 100% mine.
It’s no secret that I don’t like summer. I’m so pasty white that I don’t absorb the sun I reflect it. 🙂 Bugs love to nibble away at my skin. I don’t tolerate heat and it’s often too hot to turn the oven on. I’m allergic to all the growing things and don’t get to breath from May until September.
But the saving grace of summer is the bounty of fruit and veggies.
So when Angie of Big Bear’s Wife decided to host Summer Dessert Week I decided to join in. Main reason was the fun giveaway for you the readers. The other reason is that I miss the days in blogging when we used to do things like this all the time.
This may seem like an odd choice of a dessert for me since I’m allergic to blueberries, but I love to bake with them. I especially love the combo of blueberries and lemon.
Way back when I started this blog over 12 years ago I made a blackberry cobbler mostly because the recipe intrigued me. You roll the dough like cinnamon rolls, you melt a stick of butter in the pan, and your pour sugar water into the pan which makes everything float up. You will be determined that it will not work out and you wasted ingredients. You will be wrong…it all comes together magically.
I love this cobbler. It’s like half biscuit half cobbler. It’s messy but tasty. Some of the fruit will fall out when you slice it just through the fruit into the pan after you put the sliced dough in. I also used the Dixie Crystals Sugar sent to me as well as the Land O’Lakes butter.
You can use fresh or frozen berries. Rainer Fruit sent blueberries so I used fresh. But I have made this cobbler with both frozen and fresh fruit and both have been excellent.
OXO had sent a Glass Pie Plate but you can use any kind of pie plate you like.
This recipe does contain alcohol and so you need to be 21 or older to enjoy. If you don’t want the booze you can just use all water in the recipe.
Good luck on winning the raffle!
