the final product turned out better than i expected from the raw ingredients (the dough was so bitter), but i don't like it as much as other CL recipes (incl cobblers) i've made. i used over 6 cups of fresh berries, but it ended up with not enough berry-per-cobbler; it seems dry. (i cooked it for exactly 50 min at 350, and the berries were bubbling & the cobbler hard but not browned.) and wtf is a jelly roll pan?

I used almond extract in the filling. Used whole wheat pastry flour, sifted, for dumplings. Used low fat sour cream but could try low fat yogurt to cut fat more (can't find Daisy no fat sour cream in my stores anymore :( Bake at 400 for 30 min and check after that. Try turbinado or other

So many people loved this that I think I must have done something wrong. The topping (even after I doubled it) was powdery and blah. Served it to company and they were mildly complimentary (being polite maybe), but it wasn't a big hit.

This is a solid recipe, very easy to make. However, it's like the dumplings are missing something. They are nice and fluffy, but maybe a little bland. I noticed another reviewer put some vanilla extract in and I might try that next time. The sour cream in the dumplings is a nice change.

I added nectarines (in lieu of 2 cups of blueberries), added vanilla and cinnamon to the dough (in addition to using whole wheat flour), and added extra lemon zest to the berry mix... DELICIOUS!! Makes a huge portion- will definitely make this again and it may be my new cobbler recipe.

A really nice simple dessert - the biscuit topping tasted just like scones I used to have as a child. Agree that the filling need just a little bit "more" even though the fresh blueberries tasted great - would try some cinnamon, extra lemon, or vanilla extract next time.

This was so delicious. I did make a few changes. I didn't have sour cream so I replaced with fat free plain Greek yogurt. I love lemon, so I added some lemon zest to the topping and juice of half the lemon to the berries. The biscuit topping was ridiculous! My daughter asked mr to make just the topping so we can eat them plain. This will be my go to cobbler.

I used blackberries and halved the recipe as I only had 3 cups. It worked out great. I mixed the batter in the food processor and it went together quickly and easily. The only other substitution was to use raw sugar on the top of the biscuits before baking. Delish...can't wait to try with other berries.

I kinda think the other reviewers might be crazy because I found this to be delicious. I just now realized I forgot to do the whole brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar part and it was still amazing. I thought the portion sizes were HUGE for CL, which is always a plus. I did add some vanilla extract and cinnamon based on other reviewers comments--I mixed them in with the sour cream and added it to the flour mixture. This was also super easy to throw together and looked kinda fancy. yuuuuuuuuuuuum

Amazing! I followed others' suggestions and put juice of half a lemon to the blueberry mix, and a bit of vanilla extract to the dough. I think this is the best blueberry dessert I ever had.

I used lime zest instead of lemon, and added a few blackberries and raspberries to make the full 6 cups. It was wonderful!
