Berry-Balsamic Cobbler

Have you ever drizzled balsamic vinegar over fresh berries? The vinegar’s acidity plays beautifully against the sweetness of the berries in a perfect union of flavors. In this instance, a velvety smooth balsamic vinegar adds complexity to a berry cobbler.

You’ll want to use the buttery biscuit topping to soak up every last drop of syrupy juice. I paired strawberries with blueberries; use any blend of berries you prefer, or try a mix of berries with slices of stone fruit.

Biscuit Topping

  3. Combine yogurt, milk, and vanilla in a small bowl; add to flour mixture and stir just until moist.
  4. Lightly flour hands and knead mixture 3 or 4 times in the bowl, just until dough comes together.
  5. Pour berry mixture into prepared baking dish; top with spoonfuls of biscuit dough.
  6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until juices are bubbling and biscuit topping is golden.
  7. Let cool slightly on a wire rack before serving. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator; warm before serving.
