Blueberry-Peach Cobbler ala Mason Jar

Welcome to my newest obsession....dessert in a mason jar.  Aside from being adorable, completely portable and the perfect size; these jars remind me of my grandma and homemade jams.  I think that's why I smile every time I look at them.
In the past I've made pies, cookie dough and crumbles in these jars. However, this is my first attempt at a cobbler. 
My husband will tell you that his favourite fruit is a peach, and I'm partial to fruits that end in 'berry.'  So, it seemed fitting that we should combine the two, top it with a flaky biscuit, creamy vanilla ice cream and call it a day. 
This recipe is the perfect ending to a summer BBQ.  Fresh peaches and blueberries baked and bubbly to perfection - Mmmm.  I wish I could say I waited for my dinner guests before diving into one of these, but alas, the sweet aroma coming from my oven overtook my senses and J and I shared one this afternoon.  I like to refer to this as 'quality assurance.'  You're Welcome!
ENJOY - happy summer!

Blueberry-Peach Cobbler ala Mason Jar

Fruit Filling:(courtesy of Emeril)
5-6 peaches, peeled and cubed
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Biscuit topping:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup butter
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla

vanilla ice cream, for serving

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In small saucepan, combine butter, granulated sugar and blueberries.  Cook over medium heat for 6-7 minutes stirring until syrup forms.  Remove from heat allow to cool.
In separate bowl combine brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Add peaches and stir to coat.  Allow to sit for 5 minutes to absorb flavours.
To make biscuit topping, combine all dry ingredients and stir.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Add buttermilk and vanilla and stir until just incorporated.
To assemble.  Add peach mixture to the bottom of six mason jars.  Spoon blueberry mixture evenly over peaches.  Cover with biscuit topping and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake for 30 minutes, or until fruit mixture is bubbly and biscuit is golden brown in color.
Serve warm or at room temperature (I prefer warm).  
Top with vanilla ice cream. (Mmm...melts on impact)


  1. They look great. How full did you fill the jars? I want to make 24 of these for a party. How many did your recipe make?

  2. This recipe yields six jars. I filled the jars between 2/3 - 3/4 with fruit and then placed the biscuit mixture on top, flush with the rim of the jar (when baking some of the biscuit topping will seep into the crevices of the fruit) Note: you will have more biscuit mixture leftover, so I would say if you are making 4 batches of the fruit mixture, you will only need to make 3 batches of the biscuits.

    I hope these are a hit at your party! I'd love to hear how they turn out.

  3. how big were these mason jars? we are doing this for our wedding instead of cake :)

    1. what a great idea!
      the jars i used were equivalent to 1 cup, but you might be able to find smaller ones than that too.
      best of luck with the wedding and congrats on your upcoming day!
