What I did with my morning off...

I have no idea how old this recipe is, but it came to me about 30 years ago from a church cookbook. I suppose it is pretty standard, but it is really quick, easy and delicious. It brings back memories, as I used to make it on Christmas morning for our family as a special treat in the bleak mid-winter in Ohio! So grab a couple peaches and some blueberries, and whip some up for your dessert--most of the other ingredients you probably have in your pantry.


Combine in saucepan:

1/4 c. sugar, 1/4 c. brown sugar, 1 Tbsp cornstarch

Add 1/2 c. water and blend well. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until thick.

Add 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, 2 c. sliced fresh peaches, 1 c. blueberries.

Turn into baking dish.

Cobbler topping:

Mix together 1 c. flour, 1/2 c. sugar, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt

Add 1/2 c. milk, 1/4 c. soft butter & beat until smooth.

Spoon over fruit.

Sprinkle with mixture of 2 Tbsp. sugar. & 1/4 tsp. nutmeg.

Bake @ 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Serve warm if possible. ENJOY!

Note: If you do this in the bleak mid-winter, you may use one cup frozen blueberries and two cups frozen peaches, omitting the granulated sugar from the fruit mixture.

I have a friend who triples this recipe (without the blueberries) and makes it for her large family during the summer months.
Good and easy dessert. Thank you for sharing it.
Gonna go grab some peaches now. ;)

It's a good thing I didn't triple the recipe...I ate 1/3 of it while it was still warm...oh my, I'd forgotten how GOOD it is! Thanks!
