Cobbler



Not shoes. Food. Because that's all I talk about lately! I make cobblers all the time. They are the easiest thing to make for a last minute neighborhood gathering. Just keep frozen fruit on hand and the rest is in your pantry for sure.


The other night I needed something to bring to another impromptu summer dinner party, so I used what I had on hand, 1 bag of frozen blackberries and 1 bag of frozen peaches. They are lovely together. Just dump the frozen fruit in a Pyrex dish and sprinkle with a little brown sugar (or white but I had the brown out already so that's what went in) and either cornstarch or flour as a thickener. Then in a separate bowl, mix a handful of oats, a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar and cold butter. The amounts depend on how much topping you are in the mood for. Just eyeball it. Cut in the cold butter with a fork and sprinkle on top of fruit. Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes (depending on if you defrosted your fruit first and if you are using 1 bag vs 3 bags of fruit). Let cool a bit before digging in as to avoid boiling your tongue. I serve it plain because I don't personally enjoy the contrast of ice cream on top of anything other than a cone but I'm told it goes great with a scoop of vanilla. If that's your thing.

I love cobbler. My mom made a paula deen blueberry cobbler with homemade strawberry ice cream the other night, and it was ridiculously delicious.

I love blackberry cobbler, especially if it is made with wild blackberries that grow where the snakes hang out. I don't want any ice cream on my cobbler, but I do like a teaspoon of butter melted on top.
