The Country Cook: Blackberry Bubble Up

Blackberry Bubble Up

I gotta tell ya, I love to cook and bake with refrigerated biscuits. They taste good by themselves of course, but there is so much more you can create with them. Just like cake mixes. Pillsbury has a line of sweet biscuits now (besides the cinnamon rolls) and one of them is blueberry biscuits. These are really, really good. If I'm just making the biscuits, I'll make up a little powdered sugar glaze and drizzle it on top. Oh my word, y'all! So good! 
I love to make "Bubble Up" casseroles using biscuits. Bubble Up Pizza & Bubble Up Lasagna are my favorites! The name comes from the biscuits "bubbling up" during cooking. So I figured, why not a sweet version of the "bubble up" casserole? You can use any berry your heart desires. It just so happens that blackberries are in season here now and I got my hands on some seriously sweet ones that were bursting with flavor. This dessert is not overly sweet at all. It's more like a Berries & Cream dessert. You could certainly make a powdered sugar glaze to drizzle on top when it's finished if you want it a tad sweeter. 
1 (8 oz.) block cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ blueberry biscuits*
2 cups fresh blackberries


Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

First, cut up cream cheese into cubes. Put cut cream cheese into a large microwave safe bowl.

Top with powdered sugar.

Microwave in 30 second intervals (stirring after each time) until cream cheese mixture is smooth.
Slowly stir in milk.
Then gently stir in fresh blackberries.
Cut blueberry biscuits into eighths.
Then gently stir in cut biscuits to cream cheese mixture.
Spread mixture into baking dish.
Bake for about 32-36 minutes. Biscuits should be golden brown and not "doughy". 
Then serve! Optional topping is whipped cream or a dusting of powdered sugar or make a powdered sugar glaze to drizzle on top.
*Cook's Note: Can't find the blueberry biscuits? Use Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated original biscuits. Cut them into eighths and roll each piece into sugar (or cinnamon/sugar mixture) and proceed with the rest of the recipe. 



  1. That looks really good. I love blackberries. And the pics of the pizza and lasagna look good too. I havent seen the blueberry biscuits. But I haven't really looked either. I always found those canned biscuits too salty for me. Yes even the Pillsbury ones. But I'm willing to try!!

  2. I'm going to have to try one of these amazing looking "bubble" recipes of yours! What a great way to make a delicious meal that much faster and fun! This berry one looks soo good for breakfast.

  3. WOWOWOW! Wish I had seen this a couple days ago. I baked up some bars with fresh black raspberries...this looks soo good. I love the biscuits and the addition of cream cheese to this sweet treat. Pinning!

  4. I have seen the grands blueberry biscuits at WalMart. But you need to look.
