If you’re looking for a patriotic dessert to make for holidays, then strawberry blueberry cobblers are a great option. They have a sweet, tart, and tangy flavor that everyone will love.

This is always a hit whenever I serve it for Memorial Day, Labor Day, and the 4th of July dessert for barbecues and potlucks.

Ingredients for the best strawberry and blueberry cobbler recipe

There are two key things you need for this red white and blue dessert recipe: the fruit filling and the fluffy biscuit topping.

To make the blueberry strawberry cobbler filling you need:

  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • corn starch
  • lemon juice
  • sugar

You can use either fresh strawberries and blueberries or frozen, or a combination of the two. If you use frozen berries just be sure to thaw and drain them first. I suggest defrosting them in a colander to help remove most of the moisture.

For the scratch made biscuit topping you need:

  • self-rising flour
  • milk
  • butter
  • sugar

TFN’s Tip: You can make your own self-rising flour in a large batch. Combine 4 cups of flour, 2 tablespoons of baking powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt in a container with a lid. Mix well to combine and store at room temp for up to 6 months.

How to make this easy cobbler with strawberries and blueberries

Cobblers are one of the easiest dessert recipes to make. From start to finish this patriotic dessert takes less than an hour. It comes together in 5 minutes with these 4 simple steps:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Then, stir together the strawberries, blueberries, cornstarch, 1 cup of sugar, and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Pour the mixture into the bottom of a casserole dish.

Next, rinse and dry the bowl before adding flour, 1 tablespoon of sugar and grated butter. Pour in the milk and use a heavy wooden spoon to stir until just mixed.

Drop the biscuit dough into the fruit cobbler mixture with a large spoon. Then press it lightly to partially submerge the dough into the mixture.

Bake the biscuits in the oven for 30 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the biscuits are golden brown.

Let the blueberry and strawberry cobbler cool for at least 20 minutes before serving. Use a large spoon to dish out the cobbler and top it with your favorite toppings.

Strawberry Blueberry Cobbler Recipe variations and substitutions

  • Whole milk can be swapped with 2% milk, but not skim or non-fat milk. This is because whole milk has fat, which is needed to make the biscuits rise perfectly and have the right fluffy and tender texture. Get more tips for making the best easy Drop Biscuits with Self Rising Flour.
  • We made this a red white and blue dessert with blueberries and strawberries, and vanilla ice cream. But, you can certainly prepare as a delicious fruit cobbler with just blueberries or strawberries (the recipes are linked). And if you don’t want to include ice cream, no problem: Strawberry and blueberry cobbler still makes a wonderful patriotic dessert dish!
  • For a star-spangled biscuit topping, use my easy 3 Ingredient biscuits and use star shaped biscuit cutter for a patriotic strawberry and blueberry dessert.

  • Swap the sugar in this recipe 1:1 with Splenda baking mix sugar, if you like. If you don’t have Splenda baking sugar, you can use a blend of 1/2 Splenda and 1/2 sugar. But do not use just regular Splenda to make fruit cobbler as it won’t properly thicken the fruit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I double this fruit cobbler recipe?

Yes, though I would bake it in two 13″x9″ pans to ensure that it bakes properly.

What toppings go well with strawberry blueberry cobbler?

I love to use vanilla ice cream as the topping in this patriotic dessert recipe. But other tasty topping ideas include whipped cream, cool whip, and cream cheese.

How long will homemade cobbler leftovers keep well?

Fruit cobbler will last for 4 days in the fridge. Let cool completely before covering the dish with plastic wrap or transfer to a sealed container before placing it in the fridge.

Can I freeze fruit cobbler?

Yes! You can prepare this dessert ahead of time in a freezer-safe casserole dish. Once it cools, wrap the dish with plastic wrap and then a layer of foil. Keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight and then bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

Equipment

  • 13" x 9" baking dish or 3 quart round casserole dish

Ingredients

Cobbler filling

  • 4 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen (2-16 oz containers)
  • 4 cups strawberries, fresh or frozen (2-16 oz containers)
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar (can substitute with Splenda sugar [baking] mix – see notes)

Biscuit topping

  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • cup whole milk (can substitute with 2% but not skim or nonfat milk)
  • 1/2 cup butter, grated
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together strawberries, blueberries, cornstarch, 1 cup sugar, and lemon juice. Pour into the bottom of the casserole dish.
  • Next, rinse and dry the bowl before adding self-rising flour, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and grated butter. Then, pour in the milk and use a heavy wooden spoon to stir until just mixed. Do not overmix, otherwise, your biscuits will be dense and heavy.
  • Drop the biscuit dough with a large spoon and press lightly to partially submerge them into the fruit cobbler mixture. 
  • Bake at 375ºF for 30 minutes, until the filling is bubbly and the biscuits on top are golden. Let cool at least 20 minutes before topping with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or cream cheese.

Notes

Splenda sugar (baking) mix can be substituted 1:1 for sugar. Do not use regular Splenda, as the fruit cobbler will not thicken properly. Instead use 1/2 regular Splenda and 1/2 sugar.
After the cobbler has cooled completely, transfer to an airtight container or cover with plastic cling wrap and keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
