My friend Karen shared this great recipe for peach cobbler. This morning I adapted it a little bit and made a mixed berry 4th of July cobbler. It’s delicious.
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1 c. flour
- 2 c. sugar (to be used one cup at a time)
- 1/2 t. salt
- 3 t. baking powder
- 1 c. milk
- 1 t. Mexican vanilla (no sweat if you don’t have it, I add it to everything)
- 3-4 c. of fresh peaches, peeled and sliced (or you can use berries — the fruit can be frozen if you’re in a pinch)
- 1 T. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in large baking dish (I do this in micro). Sift together flour, 1 c. sugar, salt, baking powder and blend with milk and vanilla. Pour mixture over melted butter. Spread fruit over the mixture. Cover fruit with other cup of sugar mixed with cinnamon. Bake 1 hour. Crust will magically appear and cover the entire cobbler. You’ll want to place your cobbler on a aluminum foil covered baking sheet to catch any spills — this cobbler rises way more than you’d expect. Serve with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla (duh).
