Summer Berry Cobbler – Great for Breakfast or Dessert!

Summer is finally upon us and with the warm weather comes the bounty of summer fruit and vegetables. Our version of summer berry cobbler is a great way to use up any berries laying around in your refrigerator or freezer and it will definitely impress your friends and family as either a side dish at your brunch gathering or with a scoop of ice cream for dessert.

We came across this great recipe a while back and decided to share with our followers so you can enjoy it at home! Slight variation to the recipe listed below: we clump the topping into little piles so we can serve individual portions to our guests and it makes for a great presentation and lots of crispy biscuit edges for everyone to enjoy!
