Blueberry-Peach Cobbler

Yummo! That's all I can say about this warm, juicy, scrumptious dessert!!! (Or breakfast the next day, whatever the case may be....!) When blueberries were on sale for crazy low prices a few weeks ago, I was buying them up like mad - both because all three kids LOVE them and because I can't get enough. And the rest of the year? I refuse to pay, um, like $.25 per berry, or whatever the crazy-ridiculously high price is.

This was super easy to make. Start out with a 9x9 (or 8x8) baking dish. Spray lightly with nonstick spray. Pour 4 C. fresh blueberries and 2 oz. canned, diced peaches (drained) in the dish. Mix in 2 T. lemon juice, then sprinkle with 1/2 C. sugar and 1 tsp. flour. Stir in 1 T. melted butter, til the fruit is all mixed well, then set aside.

In another bowl, mix 1 3/4 C. flour, 4 tsp. baking powder, and 6 T. sugar. Cut in 5 T. cold butter with a pastry blender until the mixture is crumbly. Make a well in the center, and add 1 C. milk and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract. Stir quickly, mixing just until moistened - do not over-mix. It will be a very thick batter or wet dough. Cover the bowl and let the batter rest for 10 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spoon the batter over the fruit, leaving just a few small holes for the fruit to peek through. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until it is golden brown on top and a knife inserted into the batter comes out clean (blueberries notwithstanding!). Let cool until warm before serving.

I highly recommend some vanilla soft-serve over it!! Enjoy!
