I usually make my cobbler southern style with a crust that bakes up through the fruit, but I used a biscuit topping for this one, both because it is pretty and it is easier to portion out individually.
Individual Berry Cobblers
This recipe makes enough for four, but it is super easy to scale to your needs. Basically you need 1 cup of frozen berries, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 tablespoon liquid for each serving. It is important that everything be hot when you put the biscuits on so that they cook thoroughly from top and bottom.
2 cups frozen blackberries (no need to thaw)
2 cups frozen raspberries
1/2-3/4 cup sugar (up to you depending on how sweet you like your dessert)
1 tbsp orange liquor, or 1/2 tsp orange extract
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup orange juice (juice of one orange)
1/3 cup soy milk
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup biscuit mix (I used a homemade mix. It's good, but I want to work with it some more before I post it)
1 tbsp turbinado sugar
Place 4 6-8oz ramekins on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and place in oven. Preheat to 425.
Mix soymilk, vinegar, and vanilla together and set aside to curdle.
Place 1 1/2 cup of each of the berries and the sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat. Cook until berries are thawed completely, stirring frequently. Add liquor or orange extract and allow to simmer while you make the cornstarch slurry. Mix the orange juice and cornstarch together until completely smooth. Add to berries and cook, stirring frequently, until it bubbles and thickens. Add last cup of frozen berries and turn heat all the way to low.
Pour soymilk mixture into biscuit mix and stir just until evenly mixed. Take baking sheet out of oven. Working quickly, portion out 1/2 cup berry mixture into each ramekin then top with three scoops, a generous tablespoon each, of biscuit dough. Try to keep them from touching so they bake evenly. Sprinkle lightly with turbinado sugar and return pan to oven.
Bake 15-18 minutes, until biscuits have puffed and turned golden brown and delicious and filling is bubbling. Remove from oven and let cool 20 minutes before serving. If you are making these ahead of time just place them in a warm oven for 15-20 minutes to reheat. Serve with your favorite vanilla ice cream or tofu whip.
