I love fruit deserts! Cobblers are one of my favorites because they are so easy. Just a few steps and you are rewarded with something warm and bubbly that reminds you of home. That's how I feel about them, anyway.
Here's a recipe for a Blueberry Peach Cobbler that is out of this world! Make it on a Sunday morning so your kitchen will smell like blueberry pie all day. Fact. It's a win-win situation!
(recipe adapted from cooks.com)
You will need:
3 c. sliced peaches (5 or 6 med.)
2 c. blueberries
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2/3 c. sugar
3 tbsp. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tbsp. butter
1 c. all purpose flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. shortening
3 tbsp. milk
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Arrange the peaches and blueberries in ungreased 8x8 inch baking dish.
Sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix 2/3 cup sugar, 3 tbsp. flour and cinnamon; sprinkle over fruit.
Dot with butter.
Mix 1 cup flour, 2 tbsp. sugar, the baking powder and salt, cut in shortening until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Blend together milk and egg, and then add it to the flour mixture until a dough forms.
Drop dough by 9 spoonfuls onto fruit mixture.
Bake uncovered until topping is golden brown 25 to 30 minutes.
Serve warm with whip cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Left overs are delicious cold, right from the fridge. Two spoons, one bowl - Go for it! : )
Happy 1st day of Summer!!! Celebrate and make a cobbler. It's so worth it!
