Peach-a-Berry Cobbler


When Better Homes and Gardens magazine asked readers to name their favorite BHG recipe, many readers nominated this one. Why? It's the juicy combination of two fruits and the "so fluffy" topping. It's equally delicious made with fresh or frozen fruits.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ cup milk

  • ¼ cup butter or margarine, softened

  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoon coarse granulated sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg or cinnamon

  1. For topping, stir together flour, the 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and the baking powder. Add milk and the 1/4 cup butter or margarine all at once. Stir until smooth; set aside.

  2. For filling, in a medium saucepan stir together brown sugar and cornstarch; stir in water. Add peaches and blueberries. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Add the 1 tablespoon butter or margarine and the lemon juice; stir until butter or margarine melts. Pour into an ungreased 1-1/2-quart casserole. Spoon topping in mounds over hot filling; spread evenly over filling. Sprinkle with a mixture of the 2 tablespoons coarse sugar and the nutmeg or cinnamon. Place on a shallow baking pan in oven.

  3. Bake cobbler in a 350 degree F. oven about 35 minutes or until bubbly and a toothpick inserted into topper comes out clean. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
