My friend and golfing bud, Cindy made the most delicious cobbler for our annual Seafair Party in August. Everyone raved about it... begging for the recipe. I was able to get it to share with the world. This is 15 minutes prep time and 40 minutes of baking.
This really is a basic, yummy fruit dessert, but what catapults it into the realm of absolutely blissful deliciousness is the addition of a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream!
A group of family decided to go "Glamping" to Moses Lake for the "Eclipse" in August. We always share dinner and everyone participates in the preparation. One of the nights I made the "Mixed Berry Cobbler"! A big hit!
Any fruit ...6 cups or large clear bag frozen fruit from QFC. Dump in bowl with 1/3 cup sugar (I skimp for a more tart dish) and 1/3 c. flour. Fold in with fruit and dump into your baking dish and dot with 2 T butter.
Set aside to prepare crust.
In a bowl..
2 cups flour
1/2 t. salt
2/3 c. Canola oil
1/3 c. warm water
1 T. sugar
1 T. milk (any percent)
STIR....will instantly become a ball of "dough"....roll out to a size of your baking dish between wax paper, plastic wrap or foil.
|When I don't have a rolling pin, I just use a wine bottle. Because I use paper or plastic wrap, no need to sanitize the bottle! I haven't found a need to take up space in the motorcoach with a rolling pin!|
Peel off one side of paper and place over fruit....PEEL off second piece of paper or foil...VOILA! Tuck or trim edges and patch any bare places over fruit. Top with a "smattering " of sugar.
BAKE - 425 Degrees for 40 min. May cook a bit longer if berries were totally frozen. Raspberry fruit is delicate, so I only cooked them 40 min. Use your own judgement. At end of 40 minutes and fruit is bubbling like crazy, it is DONE!
Serve with ice cream or a big dollop of freshly whipped cream!
I have made this with every berry fruit and combination....a hit EVERY time.
Don't call to complain when you have to soak and clean the baking dish. Ha Ha! ( Because we were "glamping" I used a foil pan and avoided the clean up!)
