Fruit Cobbler

cobbler ingredients

I have been craving peach cobbler for a while. Last week when I was going to make it, I didn’t have all the ingredients and opted to make a pie instead. I received more peaches and nectarines in this week’s produce box, so the craving was back. As usual, while making the dish, I ventured a little bit from the recipe… here’s what I did…

You will need one of the baking pans below:

    8- or 9-inch square baking pan, at least 2-inches deep
    OR
    8 x 10-inch rectangular baking pan, at least 2-inches deep

*I used an un-greased 8-inch square glass baking pan*

Cobbler Biscuit Dough

    1 1/3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
    2 Tbsp. sugar
    1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. allspice (not pictured)
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon (not pictured)
    1/2 tsp. nutmeg (not pictured)
    5 Tbsp. nondairy butter, cold
    1/2 cup nondairy milk
    1 Tbsp. sugar, for sprinkling on top of dough

Filling

    4 to 5 cups fruit, I used:

    • 3 peaches, peeled and sliced
    • 3 nectarines, peeled and sliced
    • 10 oz. frozen blueberries (not pictured)

    zest from 1/2 a lemon (or lime)
    1/3 – 1/2 cup sugar ( I used less than 1/2 cup)
    2 Tbsp. unbleached all-purpose flour

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. For the biscuit dough, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  3. Cut in the nondairy butter, until the dough resembles coarse bread crumbs.
  4. Add the nondairy milk, stir until a sticky dough is formed. Set aside.
  5. For the filling, combine fruit, zest, flour, and sugar.
  6. Spread filling evenly in the baking dish.
  7. Using a tablespoon, scoop dough over the fruit. You can leave the dough in shapeless blobs on the fruit or spread it out.
  8. Sprinkle remaining tablespoon of sugar over the dough.
  9. Bake 45-50 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the juices have thickened slightly.
  10. Let cool 15 minutes before serving.
