Fruits of summer...

NOW THAT WE ARE entering the last weeks of summer I'm trying to get in all the fruits I can before they are gone. To that end, I think I purchased a few to many peaches and so I just had to make a cobbler. Isn't that a shame? My only problem with that was that I had to share.

Anastasia's Wrapping Up Summer Cobbler
4 or 5 medium, ripe peaches                         1 cup of fresh blue berries
2 Tbsp quick cook tapioca                            2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp real vanilla                                            1 Tbsp melted butter

First bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Dip the ripe peaches in the hot water for a few seconds and then peel off the skin of the peaches. Then slice them into a bowl, removing the pit in the process. Then add the tapioca, vanilla and sugar to the fruit.

Once you gently mix the fruit and other ingredients. Place the fruit mixture into a greased baking dish. And drizzle with melted butter.

Next put together the topping.

Shortcake crust
1 1/2 cups of flour                              2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup packed brown sugar              1/4 cup melted butter (4 Tbsp)
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

In  a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients. Whisk them together to make sure they are evenly distributed. Then add the cream and butter. Mix with a wooden spoon until the dough comes together. It will be a stiffer dough. Don't over mix!

Spoon the dough on to the fruit. And then bake at 425 for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

When it comes out I let it cool for about 30 minutes, then I serve it with ice cream or just heavy cream. Yum!! Enjoy!
