This homemade blueberry cobbler is downright irresistible with the addition of fresh orange. It’s a favorite combination of mine, one that I couldn’t quit thinking about after making Blueberry Hand Pies with Orange Glaze. With orange biscuit puffs baked on top of sweet, jammy blueberry filling, this cobbler has stolen my blueberry-orange lovin’ heart!

What You’ll Need

This cobbler is made with blueberries, orange, and a handful of pantry staples. The ingredient lists for both the blueberry filling and orange biscuit puffs are short and sweet!


  • Blueberries – Fresh or frozen blueberries work in this recipe, so you can make it year-round. But the freshest summer berries will always be best!
  • Orange juice – Use freshly squeezed juice for the best flavor!
  • Vanilla extract – Pure vanilla adds a hint of sweet, warm flavor.
  • Brown sugar – Complements the tart blueberry flavor.
  • Cornstarch – Thickens the filling, giving you a more jammy consistency.
  • Cinnamon – Adds warm flavor.
  • Kosher salt


  • Flour – Regular all-purpose baking flour is all you need.
  • Sugar – A small amount of sugar is just enough.
  • Baking powder – Helps the puffs to rise.
  • Salt
  • Orange – Orange zest and freshly squeezed orange juice give these biscuit puffs that touch of bright orange flavor.
  • Butter – Unsalted butter should be cold and cut into cubes.
  • Milk – Your preferred dairy milk.
  • Coarse sugar – Adds texture to the tops of the puffs.

How to Make Blueberry Cobbler with Orange Biscuit Puffs

One of the reasons I love making cobbler is that it’s so easy. The blueberry filling comes together in just a few minutes and the biscuit dough is super simple too!

  • Prep. Preheat the oven to 350° F and spray the pan with cooking spray.
  • Prepare the blueberry filling. Fold the blueberries in a bowl with orange juice and vanilla. Then combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and fold into the blueberries.
  • Prepare the orange biscuit puffs. Whisk together dry ingredients then cut in the butter until crumb-like pieces form. Combine milk and orange juice and add to the flour.
  • Assemble the cobbler. Pour the blueberry mixture into the pan. Scoop dollops of the orange biscuit dough across the top. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • Bake. Bake for 45 minutes. The blueberry mixture should be bubbling and the biscuits nicely browned. Let cool and serve.

Tips for Success

This mouthwatering cobbler is simple to make. Here are a few tips and suggestions to make the perfect blueberry cobbler:

  • Frozen berries are okay! While I love making this with freshly picked berries, you can also use frozen berries. No need to thaw them first!
  • Use other berries. You can also try this recipe with other berries – blackberries work particularly well.
  • Use cold butter. Cold butter is essential to making the biscuits. Keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
  • Don’t overmix the batter. For biscuits that puff up, take care not to over-incorporate the ingredients.

Serving Suggestions

Enjoy your blueberry cobbler while it’s still a bit warm from the oven. Allow it to cool for 30 minutes or so, then enjoy with a splash of cream, a spoon of lightly sweetened whipped cream, or a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

The ice cream will always be my favorite – I love how the frozen ice cream gets all melty with the warm cobbler!

How to Store

You can store this blueberry cobbler in the fridge for up to 4 days. Either reheat individual portions in the microwave or reheat the entire pan in the oven.

If you choose to reheat in the oven, allow the pan to come to room temperature first. Then use a lower over temp (250° F to 300° F works great) and then reheat until the blueberry filling starts to bubble. If the biscuits start to brown too much, simple place a piece of foil loosely over the top of the pan.

Can I Freeze Blueberry Cobbler?

You can easily freeze this blueberry cobbler! Allow it to cool completely after baking, then cover it tightly with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. It will stay fresh for up to 2 months.

To reheat, let it thaw first, and then pop it back into the oven until warmed through. You can cover it with foil if the top starts browning too much.

    Cobblers, especially in the summer when so many fruits are available, are so easy to make and oh-so delicious! I usually make a quick oat-and-flour crumble instead of biscuits but biscuits sound like a great idea!

    You brought back memories of fruit picking traditions with my Mom. Feeling a little teary, but happy with good thoughts. Loved the pics of your girls. Very nice photos—-really caught the spirit and I could feel the sun and smell the fruit. I liked the recipe too—-the orange flavored puffs was a most excellent idea. I pinned it.
