Summer Cobbler Recipe
Eating seasonally is something I love to do. Many foods taste their very best when in season. And when certain ingredients are savored for a period of time once a year, they just feel more special and are appreciated that much more.
Depending on where you live, cobbler is often a summertime dessert. And this one I’m about to share is delicious when it features summer fruits!
It’s a recipe that my Aunt Sherry shared with me years ago. She’s a wonderful hostess who makes delicious food and is quick to share her recipes and tricks. This cobbler takes little time to assemble and is easy to make!
Inspired by the Southern Summer scent from this year’s Summer 2019 Collection, I made this cobbler with peaches and raspberries. (In the past I’ve typically made a blackberry-cherry version with canned dark sweet cherries and fresh blackberries.) Southern Summer is a fruity floral fragrance that features magnolia, peaches and raspberries and I thought it’d be fun to make an edible interpretation of this delicious fragrance.
The beauty of this recipe is that you can use either the fresh versions of these fruits or their canned counterparts. Due to the versatile and even forgiving nature of cobblers, pretty much any fruit filling will do.
In this case I used Comstock fruit filling since the peaches here aren’t quite ripe yet. When using fresh fruit, the cobbler will take less time to bake since they aren't as dense as the fruit fillings.
