Is It Summer Yet?

Sometimes you just get a craving for the fresh and luscious fruits of summer. Thank goodness for the freezer section!

Blueberry and Peach Cobbler

2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 ½ cup sugar
1 package of frozen blueberries
2 packages of frozen sliced peaches
2 teaspoons vanilla
zest of one lime
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter, room temperature
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar

Mix the cornstarch with the sugar then add in the fruit, vanilla and zest. Butter a 13 by 9 inch glass dish and preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Transfer the fruit mixture to the baking dish. Heat it in the oven until it bubbles, about 20-30 minutes.

In the mean time, make the cobbler topping. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a large metal mixing bowl. Using a fork, mix in the butter until the mixture resembles course meal. You will need to smash in the butter and cut it into the flour. Quickly mix in the milk. Do not over mix, but make sure that all of the dry ingredients get wet.

Once the fruit mixture if bubbling, pull it out of the oven and drop the topping mixture onto the fruit via spoonfuls. Try to distribute the dough evenly over the fruit. Sprinkle it with the last tablespoon of sugar.

Bake until the topping is golden brown, for about 35 minutes. Serve the cobbler warm with vanilla ice cream.
