I'm not a big fan of Sandra Lee, but this recipe is so fast, easy, and delicious! Steve made this for me a few weeks ago using blueberries and blackberries... he called it his Black & Blue cobbler :) My dad loves berries and has a big sweet tooth so my mom wanted to make this for him. She used fresh blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries and used 3/4 cup sugar instead of 1 cup because she felt the cream soda had enough sugar in it, I really couldn't taste any difference in hers than Steve's who used the amount of sugar called for in the recipe.


2 pounds frozen blackberries, thawed
1 cup sugar plus more for dusting
3 tablespoons instant tapioca
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 (7.75-ounce) packet butter biscuit mix (recommended: Bisquick Complete)
3/4 cup cream soda, divided


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8 (4-inch) ramekins with butter flavored cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a bowl combine thawed blackberries, tapioca, lemon juice, 1/4 cup of cream soda and sugar. Transfer to ramekins.

3. In a large bowl combined biscuit mix and remaining cream soda. Mix until well blended. Sprinkle biscuit mix over berries. Dust with sugar. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve warm.


  1. this looks delicious - i just bought a bunch of raspberries last night, i wonder how it would work with them instead - i might have to try it out

  2. I think it would turn out just as good!

  3. Haha, I love watching Sandra Lee. Everything is a theme.

    The berry cobbler looks amazing!
