In the realm of classic American desserts, few things evoke the essence of summertime quite like a warm, bubbling cobbler fresh out of the oven.

With her keen eye for detail and penchant for perfection, Martha has mastered the art of creating dishes that are as beautiful as they are delicious.

So, in honor of Memorial Day and the joys of summer, let’s delve into Martha Stewart’s renowned Blueberry Cobbler recipe. Bursting with juicy berries and topped with a buttery, golden crust, this dessert is sure to be the star of any gathering.

Martha Stewart’s Blueberry Cobbler


  • 6 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup boiling water


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). In a large bowl, gently toss together the blueberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest, and lemon juice until well combined. Transfer the mixture to an 8-inch square baking dish (or another similar-sized baking dish of your choice).
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the cold butter pieces and, using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the blueberry filling in the baking dish.
  4. Pour the boiling water evenly over the topping. This will help create a tender, biscuit-like crust as the cobbler bakes.
  5. Place the baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet (to catch any potential drips) and bake in the preheated oven until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling, about 45 to 50 minutes.
  6. Once baked, remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve warm, preferably with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
  7. Enjoy the delightful combination of sweet, juicy blueberries and buttery, crumbly topping, savoring each bite as you create cherished memories with loved ones.
