 As the leaves begin to turn and the air turns crisp, September and October bring us some of the most delicious fruits of the year. What better way to celebrate the bounty of the season than with a warm and comforting fruit cobbler? In this blog post, we'll guide you through creating a delightful fruit cobbler that captures the essence of autumn. Whether you have a surplus of apples, pears, or berries, this versatile recipe will help you turn nature's best offerings into a scrumptious dessert that's perfect for cozy gatherings or a solo treat by the fireplace.


For the Fruit Filling:

  • 4 cups of your choice of seasonal fruit (apples, pears, plums, or mixed berries), peeled, cored, and sliced if necessary
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (adjust to taste depending on fruit sweetness)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

For the Cobbler Topping:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/4 cup boiling water


For the Fruit Filling:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced fruit, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch. Toss until the fruit is evenly coated.
  3. Transfer the fruit mixture into a baking dish (9x9 inches or a similar size).

For the Cobbler Topping:

  1. In another mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Add the cold, cubed butter to the flour mixture.
  3. Using a pastry cutter or your hands, work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour the boiling water over the flour-butter mixture and stir until it forms a thick, dough-like batter.

Assembling and Baking:

  1. Drop spoonfuls of the cobbler topping evenly over the fruit filling.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the cobbler topping is golden brown and the fruit filling is bubbling.
  3. Allow the cobbler to cool for a few minutes before serving.


As the days grow shorter and the air turns cooler, this seasonal fruit cobbler is a perfect way to embrace the flavors of September and October. Whether you enjoy it on its own, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a dollop of whipped cream, this dessert embodies the essence of autumn. So, head to your local orchard or farmer's market, pick up the best of the season's fruit, and indulge in the warmth and comfort of this delightful cobbler.
