Blackberry Very Peachy Cobbler

blackberry_peach_cobblerLuscious.

That would be my word to describe this.

Add some ice cream.

Die.

Go to heaven.

But only if they have this.

Otherwise, consider. . . oh silly, ice cream won’t last in Hell.

Make this.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pint of blackberries
  • 5 peaches (give or take) About 5 cups peeled and sectioned. Yes I know it’s a pain, but otherwise it gets a bit chewy.
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 C flour

FOR THE BISCUITS:

  • 1 c + 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 stick butter frozen
  • 1/4 c sour cream
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Heat oven to 375°
  • Whisk the dry ingredients for the biscuits together.
  • Grate the butter using the large grate opening into the flour, toss with fingers
  • Add the sour cream and heavy cream and mix with hands until it comes together.
  • Knead into a disk and pat out our roll gently into a rectangle.
  • Cut into about 8 pieces. (do this on parchment paper and lift onto a cookie sheet and refrigerate until done with the filling and ready to put in oven.
  • Mix the fruit gently with the rest of the filling ingredients and place in a 9 x 9 or 12 x 12 baking dish. Lay the biscuit dough on top separating between each piece.
  • Brush with a little extra sour cream and dust with some sanding sugar if you have it.
  • Place in oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes.

SERVES: 8

NOTES: Don’t overdo the blackberries since you will lose the flavor of the peaches. You can not peel the peaches if you desire but they become tough, so I like them removed. You could easily substitute blueberries, strawberries, or cherries, but keep the ratios the same to keep he peach flavor up. You might want to add a 1/4 tsp of peach extract and stir into the peaches first. Depends on how flavorful your fruit is. And technically this is not a cobbler but who cares!
