Peach-Blueberry Cobbler

I've got a lot of catching up to do with posts from last week. First up, a fresh peach and blueberry cobbler. I found a recipe on RecipeZaar that sounded like a good one to try. I used some fresh chopped peaches and some fresh blue crop blueberries. This was so yummy! Definitely hit the spot! My parents tried some when they stopped by and thought it was delicious, too. I think most cobbler recipes are pretty similar, so I doubt this is anything special, really, but it'll be one of my go-to cobbler recipes from now on.

Fresh Peach Cobbler

6 cups peeled sliced peaches (I just eye-balled it between peaches and blueberries)
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Filling: Mix peaches, sugar and flour together and pour into a 15-inch baking dish.

Batter: Combine 2 cups flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in food processor. Process to combine. Add the milk and melted butter. Process until smooth. Spoon batter over the peaches, making sure you spread to edge of dish.

Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon over the top.

Bake in center of oven about one hour.

Crust should be brown and crisp on the outside and cooked all the way through. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Variation: Blackberry, blueberry or raspberry cobbler--omit cinnamon and nutmeg.

I love cobbler. I need to make some peach cobbler while good peaches are in season.
