This recipe comes to us from Colavita.


Serves 4

  • For the tomato base:
  • 1 medium size vidalia onion
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz) of diced tomatoes
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp aged white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves plus a few sprigs for garnish


  • For the biscuits:
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup polenta
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


For the cobbler:


Chop half the amount of cherry tomatoes in half.

Sauté the onion in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until tender.

Add all the tomatoes to the skillet (chopped, whole and diced) along with the minced garlic. Cook for 10 minutes, until the whole tomatoes burst and reduce.

Add the vinegar, brown sugar, salt, pepper and thyme leaves. Mix well.

Set aside while you prepare the biscuit dough.


For the biscuits:


Place the flour, polenta, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly.

Add the buttermilk, olive oil, and shredded cheese and mix just until it comes together. Do not over mix the dough.

Use an ice-cream scoop to scoop out the biscuit dough and place on top of the tomato mixture.

Place the biscuits about 1-2 inches apart because they will spread.

Bake for about 35 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and the tomato mixture is bubbling. Let sit for 10-15 minutes and serve warm. Garnish with extra sprigs of thyme. Enjoy!
