Filling Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ pounds apricots
  • 8 ounces fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into ½ inch pieces.
  • cup boiling water


  • Preheat oven to 350º F and make sure the rack is in the center position.
  • Butter a 7" x 11" pan. (I used glass, if you use metal, the baking time may vary.)
  • Cut the apricots into six pieces each and discard the pits.
  • Toss in a bowl with the blueberries, lemon juice, brown sugar, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Pour the fruit mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Set aside while preparing the topping.
  • In a medium bowl, with a fork, mix together the flour, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the butter and cut through it with 2 forks or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  • Add the boiling water and toss quickly until the dough just comes together. Try not to overwork the dough.
  • Drop large spoonfuls of the dough onto the top of the fruit. It's okay if there are spaces.
  • Place on center rack of preheated oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until the topping is golden brown and the fruit is bubbly.
  • Let cool before serving for at least 30 minutes, the fruit is extremely hot just out of the oven.


Gr8 Serving Tip:
Serve with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.
Gr8 Do-Ahead Tip:
The cobbler can be made several hours ahead of time. You can serve it at room temperature or reheat it gently in the oven.
Gr8 Tip: 
My daughter suggested using raspberries instead of blueberries...try it!
