Biscuits & Berries In A Skillet

This cobbler-like recipe is one my mother in law makes. It’s a great way to use up leftover berries. I like to make it when berries are on sale at the grocery store.

The blackberries & raspberries in this skillet scream summer, but the yummy pie & rustic biscuit crust make it totally appropriate for fall. So make it now then make it again in a couple of months! It’s perfect for this time of year when we’re starting to transition (hopefully) to cooler weather. It’s basically a berry cobbler, but much more rustic.

Next, you’ll cook the filling in a cast iron skillet. The berries will break down building up a thick, sweet sauce.

Biscuits will go on top & steam over the berry filling. Once they’ve cooked through, the skillet goes into the oven to give everything a nice brown color.

PS- I’m using a small cast iron skillet here, to fill a full size one you’ll need to double this recipe.

It’s best served with fresh whipped cream! Vanilla ice cream is good too.
