Combine the dry ingredients


Cut the butter into the dry ingredients by squishing the cubes between your fingers (or a pastry cutter) until they are quarter-sized. Pour in a small amount of the buttermilk and gently mix the dough with a spoon. Continue adding the buttermilk in a little at a time, aiming for the dry spots.

Cut in the butter & add buttermilk


Shape the dough into a disk and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Chill in the fridge for at least one hour.

Chill the biscuit dough


Roll the dough out to about 1" thick. Cut into quarters, then layer on top of each other. Roll out again to 1" thick, and repeat two more times. After the last stack, roll the dough out to a rough 8" circle, then cut into 9 pieces. Freeze for at least 15 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the berries, sugar, cornstarch, salt, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla.

Make the berry filling


Pour the berry mixture into a 9" pie dish.

Transfer to dish


Arrange the biscuits on top. Brush each with buttermilk, and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake for 15 minutes until the biscuits are lightly golden on top, then turn the temperature down to 350 degrees F and bake for another 1 hour - 1 hour 15 minutes.

Assemble, then bake


Allow the cobbler to cool for at least hour to allow the filling to thicken up. Enjoy with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Cool, then enjoy!
