Triple Berry Crumble

Berry season is almost here and I got a jump start with this simple and delicious crumble recipe. I had stocked up when I was at Costco the other week and bought strawberries, blueberries and raspberries – all of my kids favorite fruits. They ate a good amount of them, but I had some that I needed to use up before they went bad. You could easily replace the fresh fruit with frozen if berries are not in season.

The crumble was delicious. The berries cooked down to make a jam like substance and the top was crispy and sweet. It was perfect warmed in the microwave and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. A perfect way to wrap up a barbecue dinner.

Peach Raspberry Cobbler

This is the second recipe that made for August’s Cookbook Club Review group. I had a bunch of peaches and raspberries to use and I found this great recipe for peach cobbler. It took no time at all to throw this together…except I forgot to put the pie pan on a baking sheet when I put it into the oven. You get where I’m going with this…..bubbled over onto the bottom of my oven. Gah. At least that was the only issue I had while making this…and it was bound to happen at some point!

This cobbler was a little different than others I’ve made before. The crust is a biscuit mixture rather than a cake mixture, but I loved it. It was great warmed up a little bit with a splash of milk. YUM! I can’t wait to make it again!

6 cups fresh peaches, sliced with skin on
2 cups fresh raspberries
2 Tbsp flour
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 heaping Tbsp sugar, plus more for sprinkling
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the sliced peaches, raspberries and 2 tablespoons of flour. Mix and set aside. In another bowl. mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pantry knife until the mixture becomes small crumbles. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and egg. 
Drizzle the egg-milk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix with a fork until the dough forms. It should be lumpy. Pour the fruit into a deep dish pie pan (and place on a baking sheet). Tear off pieces of the dough and cover the top of the fruit. Sprinkle with sugar. 
Lightly cover the dish with foil and make for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes until the top is lightly browned. Allow to cool slightly before serving, the sauce will thicken up as a it cools.
