For the Filling

  • 4 pints blueberries, washed, dried and picked over to remove any steams
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar (5 1/4 ounces; 148 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon optional (I found I preferred the cobbler without the cinnamon

For the Cobbler

  • 1 1/3 cup white rice flour (5 1/3 ounces; 150 grams)
  • 1/3 cup tapioca (1 1/3 ounces; 38 grams)
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch (1 1/3 ounces; 38 grams)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (1 3/4 ounces; 50 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces (3 ounces; 85 grams)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream plus 1 to 2 tablespoons, chilled (6 ounces; 170 grams)
  • vanilla ice cream, for serving, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
  2. Make the Filling: Stir together blueberries, granulated sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl. (Add ground cinnamon if using.) Pour berry mixture into the prepared pan. Set aside.

  3. Make the Topping: Whisk together white rice flour, tapioca starch, cornstarch, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until no large pieces of butter remain.

  4. Stir in 3/4 cup heavy cream until a dough forms. If the mixture is dry, add the additional tablespoon of heavy cream. Dough should form a dough ball.

  5. Pinch the dough into small balls. Place on top of berries, leaving a little space between the biscuits. (This recipe makes a generous amount of biscuit topping. There won't be too much room between the biscuit pieces.)

  6. Bake for 35 minutes or until the biscuit topping is golden brown and the filling is boiling. (Thanks to the cornstarch, the filling won't thicken until it boils.)
  7. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
