  • This is such a great all-American recipe due to the tart raspberries against the flavors of the rich walnuts. Serve this with the nuts sprinkled on top at the last minute. This touch adds a great texture and a last minute burst of flavor. Of course, it is delicious with ice cream, but a raspberry sorbet swirled with vanilla ice cream is also fabulous.


  • Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup Fisher® Walnut Halves and Pieces, divided
  • Filling:

  • 3 1/2 pints raspberries, divided - for food safety, gently rub produce under cold running water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 large lemon zest and juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Make topping: Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Add the butter and work it into the dough with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the sour cream and heavy cream. Coarsely chop ¾ cup of the walnuts and stir them in. Roll the dough on a flat, floured surface to about 1 inch in thickness. Use a round cutter about 2 inches in diameter to cut as many circles as possible. Refrigerate the dough.
  3. Make the filling and bake the cobbler: Toss 3 pints of the raspberries with the sugar, cornstarch, the lemon juice and half of the lemon zest. Pour half of them into a 10-inch cast iron skillet or a 9 by 9-inch baking dish and top with the ½ cup of walnuts. Top with the remaining raspberry mixture. Place the biscuit circles over the raspberries. Bake until the topping is golden brown and the juices have thickened, about 45-50 minutes. The biscuit top should be browned and fully cooked. Cool. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ½ pint raspberries, and remaining ¼ cup walnuts and lemon zest. Top with the raspberry walnut mixture just before serving for added fresh flavor and crunch!
