Jamboree Peach (or berry!) Cobbler


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).

Happy 4th!
