It's beginning to feel like summer already, and I am craving all of the beautiful summer produce. This Gluten and Dairy Free Berry Rhubarb Cobbler is one of my favorites and a celebration of the gorgeous berries at season's peak.
There's just something warm and cozy about cobbler that pairs perfectly with the summer. It's a great dessert to bake on the grill or the oven. In addition, it's always the perfect end to all of your summer backyard parties and barbecues.
Classic with a Twist
I love the versatility of a cobbler. It's one of those desserts that you can celebrate whatever is in season. Gluten and Dairy Free Berry Rhubarb Cobbler combines all of my favorite berries for the ultimate sweet treat.
While cobblers are perfect year-round, there's just something about them that pairs so perfectly with the warm sun filled days of summer. The fruit is a little sweeter, the weather has you wanting to be outdoors, kids are out of school, and people want to gather together.
The recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Berry Rhubarb Cobbler will wow your friends and family and have them asking for you to make it again. The best part is how easy it is!
I love the way the tart rhubarb plays with the sweet berries. For this recipe I am using a combination of blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries. They all bring their own personality while complimenting each other. A splash of fresh squeezed orange juice livens everything up.
Crowning the top of this bounty of fruit is orange scented Gluten Free drop biscuits. Lightly golden on top, they make the perfect canvas to absorb all of the sweet, sticky juices from the filling.
