This summer has flown past me this year and I have gotten little out of my garden or the farmer's market. Thankfully, a good friend stopped by last Sunday on her way home to St. Louis. She brought me some ripe peaches and they made the BEST peach cobbler! They smelled SO GOOD! I found a recipe for Fruit Cobbler in a recipe book created as a fundraiser for our Catholic School and it has some really good recipes in it! I wanted something yummy but wasn't feeling particularly ambitious so I found a recipe for a cobbler that had a "crumble" crust. Its really good and the peach cobbler was so delicious I had to share some with both my parents and my husband's mom! What a treat! Tasted like summer on a plate! I will definitely be using this cobbler recipe in the future for whatever kind of fruit I have on hand!
This is how I made Fresh Peach Cobbler AT HOME MY WAY:
4 cups any fruit or berries (I used sliced and peeled peaches)
1 cup sugar (probably could cut back on this)
1 Tablespoon flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/3 cup Margarine/Butter (this is equal to 5 Tablespoons) (cold)
In a mixing bowl place the peeled, sliced fruit and toss with the sugar and 1 Tablespoon of flour. Pour this fruit into a 10" baking dish/casserole dish. Using the same bowl that you had the fruit in (no worries about the crumb topping having a little "peach juice" on it - I try to keep my dishes to a minimum when cooking), Mix the flour and sugar. Cut the margarine into slices and using a pastry blender or fork, blend the butter/margarine until small and crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 45 minutes or until slightly browned.
NOTE: Remember that if you have a whole bunch of peaches, you can dip them in boiling water and then ice water similar to how you do tomatoes.
