This delicious dessert is bursting with a steaming sweet blueberry filling and a pillowy soft crust that surrounds the entire dish. You only need five main ingredients that are probably already in your pantry to make this Easy Blueberry Cobbler.
Easy Blueberry Cobbler
One of the very best life lessons I’ve ever learned is how to make this Easy Blueberry Cobbler. Just before I drove off to college an older friend of mine, who’d just moved into her first new house as a single woman, shared this recipe.
She told me how simple it was to have these four ingredients always stocked in your pantry and you could easily whip up this dessert whenever someone came to visit.
This blueberry cobbler, which is bursting with fresh blueberries and flavor, doesn’t actually have to be blueberry at all. You can easily change the filling for your favorite fruit, and though the recipe only calls for four ingredients, you can easily add some of your own favorites. Below I’ll show you how.
Since this has become one of my favorite recipes I’ve not found other flavor combinations such as this pecan pie cobbler, which makes a delicious fall dessert.

- Peach Pie Filling + Freshly Sliced Peaches
- Cherry Pie Filling + Fresh Blueberries
- Apple Pie Filling + Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Topping
- Blueberry Pie Filling + Mixed Fresh Berries
