The Perfect Summer Dessert: Peach & Berry Cobbler.

This peach & berry cobbler is delicious! It's the perfect summer desert. It's not too sweet (but just sweet enough), which is a nice change from the kinds of deserts I'm normally craving (I have a raging sweet tooth!). It's also easy to make (almost all of the recipes I feature on the blog are easy and scrumptious...two of the most important things I look for in recipes).

Peach & Berry Cobbler
Serves 8

You'll Need:
6 c. sliced peeled peaches (about 8)
1 c. raspberries and/or blueberries
1/2 c. granulated sugar
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. lemon juice

Biscuit Topping:
11/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. granulated sugar
2 tsp. lemon rind
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/4 c. cold butter, cubed
2/3 c. buttermilk (I used regular milk with a tsp. or so of lemon juice)
1 tsp. vanilla

2 tbsp. buttermilk
1 tsp. granulated sugar

You'll Do:
Toss together peaches and berries with sugar, flower, and lemon juice. Scrape into an 8-inch square glass baking dish. To make biscuit topping, whisk together flour, sugar, lemon rind, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in butter until crumbly. In measuring cup, stir buttermilk and vanilla and drizzle over flour mixture, stirring with fork to form soft, sticky dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (this can be tricky!)to form an 8-inch square. Cut into 9 (or so) squares and place over fruit. Brush squares with buttermilk to garnish, then sprinkle with sugar. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 50 minutes, or until biscuits are light golden and fruit is bubbling.

P.S. Stay tuned for photos from my trip! I'll be posting them very soon and in 5 instalments, to be precise!
