Grilled Fruit Cobbler #BBQWeek

Today wraps up #BBQWeek, and I'm offering up dessert!  With the warmer weather, I rarely turn my oven on.  Sometimes my family complains about the lack of sweet treats, so I've been trying to stockpile some to try.  

This one is from Pillsbury.  I used 3 kinds of fruit instead of just blueberries, and I could only find the Grands biscuits.  I cut one row's worth in pieces, and next time I'd do all of them that way.   I also sprinkled the tops of the biscuits with raw sugar before the final grill.

The end result may not be beautiful in the pan, but it is delicious!  The raspberries kind of disappeared, and the strawberries sunk to the bottom, but the 8x8 pan did not last long here at all.   Some had it with vanilla ice cream, some with whipped cream.   Both were great.  

What's the most uncommon thing you've ever grilled? The summer I was pregnant with my son was long and very, very hot.   We lived in an older house that the ACs popped the breakers all the time, forcing me to go 2 flights of stairs into the basement to turn it back on.  I had an unbelievable craving for chocolate chip cookies but didn't want to heat the house up more. What's a girl to do?   I mixed up the dough and baked them on our Weber grill via indirect heat.  Sure hit the spot!

I want to say thank you to Ellen at Family Around the Table and all the other fantastic bloggers who participated in #BBQWeek.  I printed so many recipes to try that I ran out of ink! 





Grilled Fruit Cobbler

4 cups fresh fruit - I used blueberries, strawberries and red raspberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 can Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (I used Grands- cut center row in half)

Heat grill to medium.  

In disposable 8x8 pan, add fruit.  Sprinkle with flour and sugar, and stir lightly to coat evenly.  Grill for approximately 20 mins with the lid down, stirring halfway through.   Top with biscuits and sprinkle with raw sugar.   Bake for an additional 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

  2. I have to confess that my outdoor grill comes equipped with an oven so I make "grilled" desserts all the time....but cheating...not for real like you.

    1. Why make the ACs work harder? If it's not quick on the stovetop, crockpot or grilled, we aren't eating it!
