Best Bisquick Cobbler Recipe from Out of the Box Baking.com

If you’re looking for the easiest, tastiest cobbler recipe out there, look no further! You’ve found it, folks. This is truly going to knock your socks off and it all starts with two simple cups of Bisquick.

Can I Make my Own Bisquick?

Yes! Yes, you can.

If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know that I love making my own Easy Copycat Bisquick recipe. I keep it in the cupboard at all times now. I use it for biscuits, pancakes, waffles, and my favorite. . .dumplings.

But, I had never used it as a topping for cobbler until today.

  • I had a can of apple pie filling.
  • I had a bag of homemade Bisquick.
  • I had butter.

And the rest, as they say, is history.

How to Make DIY Bisquick

Let’s start by talking about this whole DIY Bisquick thing. Maybe you’ve never made your own Bisquick before. I always bought it, myself, but stumbled across a recipe online some time ago. I tried it and have been hooked ever since.

I posted a full tutorial on this but here’s a quick glance at what you’ll need.

  • flour
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • sugar
  • Crisco

How to Make Bisquick Cobbler

This is an easy recipe! It comes together so quickly, you’ll be thrilled. Here’s how to make it:

Prepare an 8×8″ baking dish by coating in butter. I used a square baking dish but you can use at 8″ round.

Dump the apple pie filling in the bottom of the casserole dish.

Sprinkle with a little cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar.

In a separate bowl combine 2 cups of the Bisquick mixture, along with your room temperature butter and brown sugar.

Use your hand mixer or stand mixer with paddle attachment to work the dough until it comes together. It’s okay if it’s in pieces and not a solid mass.

Pinch off pieces of the dough to place on top of the apples.

Don’t worry about making it neat.

Place in a 400 degree (preheated) oven and bake for 20 – 22 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove and cool on a wire rack until it’s cool enough to handle. (Warm cobbler is best so don’t let it get to room temperature.)

Scoop into a bowl and prepare yourself for one of the tastiest cobblers ever!

Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or cool whip.

What to Expect from this Cobbler

Best Bisquick Cobbler Recipe from Out of the Box Baking.com

This is similar to a dump cake and just as easy.

This cobbler was light, airy, and slightly crunchy on top. . .and so sweet from the brown sugar. In short, it was absolutely perfect!

Turns out, this is an easy dessert recipe that I will make again and again. (And guess what? The crunchy crust was still crunchy the second day, even after warming in the microwave.)

Variations on this Recipe

I’m already thinking of how I might change up this classic dessert next time. I might:

  • Make it in a larger dish and use two cans of pie filling with a thinner crust.
  • Add pecans to the top of the crust. I’m crazy about pecans in pretty much anything.
  • Use blueberry or blackberry filling instead of apple. Really, any fruit filling will do. Peach sounds good. So does strawberry! Ooo, cherry!
  • Add oats to the topping for a more streusel like effect.
  • Out of brown sugar? No problem. You can use white sugar with a tablespoon of molasses or pancake syrup.
  • Use fresh fruit (like fresh peaches or apples).
  • Add melted butter in place of room temperature.
  • Make this cobbler in a cast iron skillet.
  • Try this in the fall. That’s the perfect time of the year for apple!
  • Serve with homemade whipped cream!
