Recipe: Disney’s Artist Point Berry Cobbler

As I’m still recovering from my “Marathon Fog”, please enjoy this delicious recipe in the meantime! :0)  My Rock ‘n Roll New Orleans Marathon recap will be up on the blog early next week.

Disney Artist Point Berry Cobbler

During last weeks crazy southern Winter storm, I went into a baking frenzy.  Confined to the house with “nothing” to do (I use the term “nothing” loosely) can make a person like me go mad. Instead of twiddling my thumbs (I really DID have things I could have done), I decided instead to bake.

I love Disney recipes. Yes I know, the majority of them are NOT healthy…but every once in a while, a taste of my favorite place in the world is a nice touch.

After flipping through my cookbook, Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs, I landed on a recipe from a restaurant at my favorite resort – Berry Cobbler from the Wilderness Lodge’s Artist Point. I had all of the ingredients at home already, so why not? The results were a warm, delicious, tart, berry amazingness. The best part? This recipe was super easy to follow!

Disney’s Artist Point Berry Cobbler
Adapted from: Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 2 tbsp cold butter, cut into small pieces
1 large egg
1 cup heavy cream
12 oz fresh blueberries
2 tbsp light brown sugar
1/2 pint each fresh raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries for garnish (may substitute 1 can of berry pie filling)


In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. With a pastry blender, 2 knives used scissor style, or your hands, blend in 1/2 cup butter until crumbly. With a fork, stir in the egg and mix just enough to blend. Add cream and mix just enough to incorporate; do not over mix.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 inch cake pan, line the bottom with waxed paper and grease the paper.

Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the cake pan – reserve a little bit for the topping. Place the berries on top of the dough, add remaining dough on top of berries and sprinkle with brown sugar. Place the remaining 2 tbsp butter pieces over the berries.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown (may need longer than this, just keep checking it every five minutes or so). Cool on a wire rack. Remove the cake from the pan, cut into wedges, and serve with raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries (or ice cream!)

Makes: 9 servings

Whisk together dry ingredients.

Cut stick of butter into tiny cubes (also reserve 2 tbsp on the side)

I don’t have a pastry blender, so I used two sharp knives to blend the butter in with the rest of the ingredients.

Cut wax paper to fit your desired pan and grease it.

Fill the bottom of your dish with batter and reserve a little bit of batter on the side to use for the topping.

Instead of fresh berries, I used a can of berry pie filling I had in the pantry. Yes, it adds extra calories but it’s a Disney dessert…those don’t count, right? (wink wink)

Pour berry pie filling (or fresh cut berries) onto the top of your batter. cover with drops of reserved pie filling, reserved chopped butter pieces, and sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-45 minutes. My recipe required more than the 25 minutes listed above, I think it actually baked for a total of 45 minutes.

Warm, gooey, and delicious – straight from the oven!

I served my Berry Cobbler warm, with a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream on the side.

Pure deliciousness!

Next on my list is Ohana Bread Pudding with bananas foster sauce – but I’m sure nothing beats the original! Just a few days and I’ll be basking in the glow of my favorite Disney dessert…can’t wait!

What’s your favorite Disney dessert? Have you ever made a Disney recipe at home?


  1. That looks delicious! I've seen quite a few Disney desserts floating around the blog-o-sphere lately, and my taste buds are screaming for a bite lol!

    Keep me posted on how the Ohana bread pudding is!!

    1. I know what you mean! It all looks so delicious! Ohana bread pudding with ice cream and bananas foster sauce is to die for! Hands down my favorite disney dessert! :D

  2. I have several Disney cookbooks (including that one) and I have never made any of those recipes, can you believe that? Probably because as you mentioned they are not very healthy! A tradition for us is to share a Ghiradelli (I know I probably spelled that wrong) waffle bowl the day before a race. But I also had a great Mango sorbet at Rain Forest Cafe last time I went.

    1. Ohh that sounds delicious! I love Ghirardelli!! :D haven't eaten at Disney's rainforest cafe yet! The mango sorbet sounds awesome!

  3. My husband would go crazy over this dessert. Sadly, I am not a fan of fruit in my desserts....I love to eat it plain, but very rarely indulge in pies or cobblers. My sweet tooth needs either ice cream or chocolate!

    1. Hah I understand! I don't eat pie or cobbler often, either! I'm a fan of chocolate myself! :D

  4. YUM! I'm a huge baker, but not into pies/cobblers but love the Artist Point version. I may have to try it this weekend. Thanks for sharing Karen!

  5. Yum! Can you send that in the mail? Or just come visit me?

  6. Looks amazing. I miss cobbler with ice cream on top since going GF.

  7. OMG - i never knew there was a Disney cookbook, I love pie and cobbler, now i am super hungry

  8. My sister got me one of the Disney recipe books for a gift -we just got around to making one of the recipes; sesame chicken, and it was AWESOME!!! I can't wait to make more of them. The cobbler looks divine!

    1. Oooh that sounds yummy! I'm going to have to look for that one! Thanks!
