Reviews for Slow-Cooker Berry Cobbler
"I made this last night for guests and they loved it. I was a little curious how it would turn out thinking the crust seemed too little but it was fine. It served 8 people exactly with ice cream on top. Easy and yummy dessert. I will absolutely make again. I may try and double it and put it in a bigger crock pot. I want leftovers!"
"I baked this a few weeks ago it came out very good Did it today and around the edge of the dough is green Is it alright to eat? Help me someone please."
"I have made this way to many times to count. My husband and I just love it. I use the mixed frozen berry mix from Schwan's and put vanilla ice cream or cool whip on top. Mmmm so good."
"I read the reviews and was hopeful this would be a good recipe to make in a crock pot. I was disappointed and feel I am generously rating this 3 stars, as it was only Average at best. The berries were good but what I did not like was the cobbler biscuit crust. I followed the directions and did not overcook the crust. It was moist but had a somewhat heavy texture. Not light at all like a cobbler biscuit should be."
"I cut the recipe in 1/2 and put it in our 3 quart slow cooker. I added nectarines and sprinkled brown sugar and cinnamon on top. I served it with Haagen Dazs vanilla bean ice cream.Thanks for sharing this delicious cobbler recipe, Karen."
"It was a lovely surprise. I have tried numerous deserts in the slow cooker and very few have been something I would repeat. This, however, will be prepared often. The biscuit layer was a slight challenge to spread evenly in the bottom of the pot. The berries were very juicy and I was skeptical to say the least. I checked the cobbler after 1 3/4 hrs. because of earlier reviews, and continued cooking for a full 2 hours. The biscuit crust was a thin, light layer and the berries were more of a thick jam topping. Wonderful with a touch of heavy cream. Thank you Karen for a delightful desert."
"Turned out awful"
"I used blackberries, raspberries and a few strawberries. I forgot the baking powder but all in all the filling was not too sweet. It was perfect! I am going to put it on top of biscuits. I will make it again and this time will make sure to add the baking powder.I also cooked it on high for one hour and then cooked it on low for an hour."
"I admit I tried the recipe not expecting it to be "guest" worthy. Boy was I wrong. This was WONDERFUL. I followed the recipe exactly, but will change the fruit in future using what I have on hand either in the garden or freezer. I can't believe how easy this was. It smelled wonderful while cooking and tasted as good as it smelled. Thanks Karen for sharing this great recipe."
"I needed a quick and easy recipe for a cobbler and found this. It is wonderful and will be in my favorite recipe binder. I love being able to use the slow cooker on a hot day like today."
"I will try this again and make sure the berries ARE thawed. :) I used 2T brown sugar, olive oil, 1% milk, 2t cinnamon, and whipped cream to top. I used the big crockpot, and will now use the small one instead, there seems to be very little crust in the big one. the taste was good with the family. We'll see when I change the size and thaw the berries, oh I used red raspberries and quarter sized black berries from our patch"
"I just made this cobbler for lunch. It was outstanding. I had to make a few changes as there are only two of us so I cut the recipe in half and then had to make high altitude changes as well(we live at 9000' elevation). It turned out so good. I will be sharing this recipe with everyone I know."
"very yummy and whole amily loved it.will try stawberrys and rubard next"
"This was so easy and good. I would recommend turning the cooker down a notch or two after the first hour or hour and a half.My cooker is old and hot so maybe that is why the crust got a little "done". I have made this 3 times and the last time I used cooked apricots and some leftover blueberries. Really good."
"I made this fabulous recipe for a late evening snack. Everyone gobbled it up. All I had was a mix of fress blackberries and frozen blackberries. I only used 2/3 cup of sugar and it was certainly sweet enough for us.Maybe the bad review came from someone who used too much sugar which can be grainy if it doesn't dissolve."
"I can't believe how easy this was! I always have frozen berries on hand so this will be made often. Very yummy!!"
"The biscuit portion was a bit dry, overcooked. Next time I will test the cobbler after 1-1/2 hours."
"I had a house full of teenagers working on a science project and they had to smell this simmering in the crockpot for 2 hours! I must admit, it didn't seem like it was going to be so great. Lots of juice and was there really a crust baking somewhere underneath there? Truth be told -- it's to die for warm or cold. The underlying biscuit does exist in there and is just the right amount for the berries in the recipe. The kids raved about it and I was thoroughly impressed myself. You can have fun and use whatever berries are in season, fresh or frozen, it's all good!"
"OK to use 4 cups of blackberries rather than 2 cups of blueberries & 2 cups raspberries? Thanks."
"Made according to directions, but added black berries as well. This turned out excellent. Wife and son even said it was better than Carrabbas."
"This is an amazing cobbler recipe!! I hardly bake and it was very simple. I used frozen blueberries, strawberries, and mixed berries, and it turned out great! Was a definite hit at dinner with friends. I served it with vanilla ice cream, and the hot/cold mix was awesome!! I will definitely make this again!!!"
"the recipe in the book I bought didnt have the amount of berries and what kind. I had to look it up on the website to get the full recipe. cant wait to make it"
"Not sure what happened - I followed the recipe as written but this just didn't appeal to our family. The fruit mixture was very tart tasting and the crust part had an odd texture to it. Just wasn't our thing."
"Yes you can make with frozen berries and it turns out just fine."
"Absolutely loved it"
"Sounds delicious! Do you think you could make it with frozen berries?"
"This cobbler is delicious and incredibly easy to make. It's a keeper for sure and will be made many more times."
"This is simple and delicious! I also made with just blueberries."
