(peach & blueberry cobbler)

i'm a girl with a strong love for fruit cobblers. they remind me of family and country settings and sweet summertime. all of the many things i hold so dear.
blackberry, cherry, blueberry, peach... you name it, they're all simply delish.

my favorite go to recipe has been one i have made many times this summer. not only is it simple to make, but it is SO savory and sweet. serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream and your belly will be thanking you.

Servings: Makes 8 servings
  • Ice cubes
  • 4 firm, ripe peaches  
  • 4 Tbsp. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 pints (5 to 6 cups) blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch freshly ground nutmeg
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Fill a large bowl with ice and water; set aside. Score bottom of each peach with an X. Place in boiling water until skin begins to pull away, about 30 seconds. Transfer to cold water; let sit until cool, about 30 seconds.
Preheat oven to 350°. Pull skin off peaches starting at the X. Cut peaches in half, remove pits, and slice into 8 wedges each, placing in a large bowl as you go. Put butter in a 3-quart baking dish; transfer dish to oven until butter is melted and dish is hot, about 5 minutes. Add berries, cornstarch, cinnamon, and 1/4 cup sugar to peaches; toss to combine.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, remaining 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt; whisk in milk. Pour batter into dish. Top with fruit. Bake until golden brown, about 45 minutes. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
