Fresh Peaches and Berries Cobbler

I love harvest time. All the fresh fruits and veggies make me want to cook. Today I made Salsa and this little beautiful Cobbler.

I have never served this to someone who did not like it. It is not like a regular Cobbler in that it has a custard type filling mixed in with the fruit. Oh, YUM is all I have to say.

Here goes:

4 Cups fresh peaches, peeled, seeded and cut into wedges

2 Cups fresh berries, (raspberries, blueberries or blackberries) I do use frozen berries from my garden) Raspberries and blackberries are my fav.

2/3 Cup flour

1 3/4 Cup granulated sugar

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

5 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

2 Cups milk

1/2 Cup heavy whipping cream

1 Cup flour

1/2 Cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp. ground cardamom

8 TBS. butter

Half and half cream or sweetened whipped cream. I use the 1/2 and 1/2.

In a lightly sprayed 9 X 13 inch baking dish, arrange the prepared peaches and berries of choice. In your blender combine the 2/3 cup flour, sugar, cinnamon, eggs, vanilla, milk and 1/2 cup whipping cream and process until all is blended. Pour this mixture over the fruit, then bake, uncovered, in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.

During the baking period, prepare the topping. In a medium size mixing bowl, combine the 1 cup flour, sugar and cardamom. Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the mixture, until the mixture resembles a streusel consistency.

Remove the baked mixture from the oven and sprinkle the topping over all and return to the oven for an additional 15 minutes or until the topping is lightly browned. Place on a cooling rack and let cool to just warm before serving. Serve with chilled half and half or whipped cream.

I always have to bake this longer than the recipe calls for. Just watch it in the oven to make sure the topping is not getting to dark.

It's me again. I just wanted to thank you so very much for stopping by my blog AND for taking the time to share so much about yourself from your heart. It truly means so much to me. Honestly it does, more than you'll ever know. I am definitely going to start 'following' you and keeping in touch. You seem like a very special lady.

I hope you have a really nice evening and I look forward to getting to know you better. I will keep you, your dad, your grandaughter and the rest of your family in my prayers. Please let me know if there is anything 'specific' I can pray for. It would be an honor.

Many Blessings,
