How To Make the Best Gluten-Free Cobbler Topping — Easy Dessert Recipes

I have fallen in love with a cobbler topping and I want to tell the world about it. Instead of a cobbler topping derived from all-purpose flour, this one is toothsome with cornmeal and toasty with oat flour. It's a cobbler topping that falls somewhere between a biscuit and a corncake. On its own, it'd be a revelation of quick breads — the perfect combination of textures and flavors for smears of butter or jam — but bake this cobbler biscuit on top of juicy ripe fruit and you'll be forever changed.

We've pulled this topping recipe out as a standalone because we believe that if you know this part by heart, you can cobble together any fruit and make an excellent gluten-free fruit cobbler. It doesn't require any hard-to-find flours or special mixing methods. Essentially a riff on a cream biscuit, this topping is changing my cobbler game this summer. Here's how to up your cobbler topping game too.

My favorite cocktail is a gin and tonic. But sometimes, even if I use extra-fancy tonic water and good gin, it feels like it just needs a little bit more.

The answer to this dilemma is a slew of cucumbers — oh, and a big ol' pitcher so that it can be batched and served up to whatever thirsty crowd you happen to invite over.
