Move over cakes, pies, and crisps, there’s a new summer dessert in town – Peach-a-Berry Cobbler!
Can we talk about how obsessed I am with this recipe? So obsessed that I called my Mom to come over while it was still warm from the oven so she could taste the bliss that is fresh summer peaches and blueberries topped with a cinnmon-sugar crusted cobbler, saddled by a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream. So obsessed!
Sweet peaches are one of my favorite things about late summer. The way you can smell them before seeing them at the grocery store or market. The way the juices run down your fingers as you take a big bite. The way they pair so beautifully with plump blueberries in this dessert. I am telling you – make this dish before fall comes our way and we have to wait another year to enjoy all things peach!
Start the Peach-a-Berry Cobbler by making the cobbler which will be dolloped on top of fresh peach slices and blueberries that have been simmered and softened on the stove top. Simply combine flour, sugar, and baking powder in a bowl, then add softened butter and milk.
Mix everything together until just combined then set aside.
Next get the peach and blueberry filling ready, starting with freshly sliced peaches. The recipe I used didn’t specify skin on or off, so I just left ‘em on. Easy!
In a large saucepan whisk together brown sugar, corn starch (to help thicken the filling) and water.
Then add the sliced peaches and fresh blueberries.
Cook the mixture until thick and bubbly, then finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to brighten the dish, and a pat of butter to give it richness.
Pour the filling into a baking dish then top with the cobbler dough. Just dabble it on here and there – it will all rise, bubble, and bake together in the oven.
Top with cinnamon sugar then bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown, a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, and the peach-a-berry filling is bubbling.
Enjoy warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if you please, then try and tell me this isn’t one of the best desserts you’ve had all summer. Enjoy!
