Easy Blueberry Cobbler with Grand Marnier

There are few desserts as easy as cobbler. But don’t be fooled… even though this is an easy blueberry cobbler, you (and anyone you serve it to) will rave about it – for two reasons: the crust and the booze!

Speaking of booze… the Grand Marnier is what takes this cobbler to the next level. If you’re not familiar with it, Grand Marnier is a top-shelf orange-flavored liqueur. It adds a depth of flavor to the blueberries and keeps them from becoming overly sweet.

My Favorite Part of Any Cobbler…

I make no apologies for loving the crust more than the filling itself. Especially this one – which is almost like eating a cookie. That’s right, I said cookie! And with a hint of cinnamon, this crust accounts for almost half of this cobbler. It’s pretty much perfect.

 

Don’t Ruin a Perfectly Good Dessert

Maybe I’m just being silly, but I think this is a valid point. I know we all love ice cream with cobbler, but there’s one piece of advice I have for you: Do NOT put ice cream on TOP of the cobbler! Ice cream is wet, the crust is crispy. If you put the ice cream on top of the crust, it will no longer be crisp. And that’s just a sad thought.
