Blueberry Peach Cobbler

I so love cobblers... they are yummy and blueberries are just coming into season now... I love using fresh local ingredients... everything always tastes better this way :)  now onto cobblers.. you can use any other kind of fruit or use just blueberries or peaches.... thinking peach/cherry would be good.. or a triple berry (blueberry/strawberry/raspberry) use what you like... you can also substitute frozen berries for these if they are out of season.  in the middle of winter this cobbler is delicious and makes you want spring to hurry up and get here.... Enjoy
I serve this with whipped cream or ice cream, or sometimes I just sprinkle this with powdered sugar too...

  1. This sounds so yummy....
    What size pan do you put this in? A 13 x 9? I might just give this a try with rhubarb and peach.
