Mixed Berry Cobbler
Well, my friends, I am less than happy to say that summer is officially here. I’ve never been a fan of hot weather. This year, though, I’m going to try to think of every day of this heat as one day closer to fall.
On a happier note, there are two things I like about summer. I do like having more daylight hours. I somehow feel like I have more time to get things done. Best of all, though, is all the fruit available from the local markets. I admit that I get a little giddy when I start seeing the first fresh berries of the season.
Tips for Success
- Measure accurately. Be sure to measure well for the topping, using a kitchen scale if possible to measure by weight.
- Use fresh or frozen berries. I prefer fresh when possible, but frozen will work, too. Just keep in mind that there will be extra moisture with frozen berries, which can make for a thinner, runnier filling.
- Slice larger berries. If you’re using large berries like strawberries, then it’s a good idea to cut them to about the same size as the smaller berries.
- Embrace this cobbler’s versatility! Combine your favorite berries or just use one. Toss in some peaches. Whatever sounds good!
This Mixed Berry Cobbler celebrates one of the best parts of a summer with a combination of berries. I really like the addition of vanilla to the topping. It supplies just a little extra flavor to complement all that berry goodness. If you’re an ice cream fan, this is just the kind of dessert that begs for a little dollop on top.
I use different combinations of berries to make this Mixed Berry Cobbler. My favorites are strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, so those tend to show up in this dessert frequently. Choose a few of your favorite berries, or just stick to one. You never have to make this dessert the same way twice!
