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.
And Here is Your Reward…

Easy Boozy Blueberry Cobbler
Blueberry cobbler that's not too sweet, and with a real depth of flavor.
- 6 cups fresh blueberries
- 1/3 cup Grand Marnier 2 mini bottles
- 1 1/2 cups sugar divided
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon divided
- 1 1/3 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Thoroughly rinse blueberries and remove any small stems. Then add blueberries to 13x9 casserole dish, along with 2 mini bottles of Grand Marnier (about 1/3 cup), and mix well. Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar and mix again. Set aside and preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl - add butter and 1 cup of sugar. Cream together until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until fully combined.
- In a small bowl, thoroughly mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, stirring just until ingredients are combined.
- Spread batter over blueberries, trying to cover as much of the surface as possible.
Bake uncovered for about 40 minutes, until topping is golden and filling is bubbling. We recommend placing a baking tray underneath, just in case filling bubbles over the edges.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
