TWD: Mixed Berry Cobbler


This week's selection, Mixed Berry Cobbler, was chosen by Beth of Our Sweet Life. It is a great selection for summertime, even though I used frozen berries which I consider to be bordering on sinful given all the fresh raspberries, etc that are available! I had never made a pie crust before {I made the cobbler before making the blueberry pie} so I was happy to start with the cobbler (which according to Mom is easier than making a pie if you've never made one before).

I made the cobbler in a deep 8" square pan and the only change I made to Dorie's recipe was adding a teaspoon of vanilla to the crust. It ended up taking about 75 minutes to bake and the last 10 minutes was pure torture! The cobbler smelled so delicious! It's a good thing I left the apartment while it cooled so I wasn't tempted to dig in early. We ended up eating it about 7 hours later with some homemade whipped cream (heavy cream, confectioners sugar & vanilla beat up with a mixer)


We were both really happy with this recipe and the only change I would make is baking it with fresh berries (who knows, maybe we'll try it this week. Never mind, I forgot we were moving. Back to packing boxes for us!)

Ah, this cobbler made the house smell so good. When I realized it needed another 10 minutes in the oven, I whined like a baby. ;)

Congratulations on your cobbler, and best wishes for your move. (My mother hates the idea of moving, and when someone moves she always wishes them to have "a really BORING move!" I'm not sure there is such a thing but it's a nice thought ;) )
