Makes: 6 servings Prep 20 mins Cook 375°F 50 mins View Nutrition Facts


  • 1 cup  all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup  fine cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon  sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons  baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon  salt
  • 5 tablespoons  cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2/3 cup  reduced-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup  grated reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons  sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon  sherry vinegar
  • 1 3/4 pounds  heirloom or regular tomatoes, cut into quarters and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon  chopped fresh thyme


1. In a food processor, pulse together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon of the black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture forms coarse crumbs. Pour in the milk a little at a time and pulse until the dough just comes together. Pulse in 1/4 cup of the cheddar.

2. Place dough on a floured surface and form into a 1/2-inch-thick circle. Wrap the disk tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate.

3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a 9-inch ovenproof skillet, combine the sugar and 2 tablespoons water. Cook over medium heat, swirling the pan gently (do not stir), 3 to 5 minutes or until sugar melts and turns amber. Add the vinegar and swirl. Add the tomatoes, thyme and remaining salt and black pepper to the pan; toss gently to coat tomatoes with the caramel mixture. Cook until the juices have thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

4. Cut biscuit dough into 8 equal-size wedges and arrange them in a circle on top of tomato mixture. Sprinkle biscuits with remaining cheddar.

5. Transfer the cobbler to oven and bake until biscuits are golden, about 40 minutes.

I used heirloom tomatoes from my local farmer's market, added half a sweet onion and half a jalapeno, used low fat mozzarella instead of cheddar and cut the salt and it turned out really delicious!

Throw in some jalapenos-- can be in the tomato mix or the cornbread. Yummy!

I didn't follow the instructions. We loved it. I used corn bread mix and poured it over the tomatoes. Also, I sautéed onions and mixed with it. I had no cheddar cheese . The sweetness of the cornbread and the tomatoes were delicious.
