A recipe I saw on Food Network. Something I have to try :P
- 6 ripe nectarines, about 1 pound
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon dry tapioca
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced into small pieces, plus more for the pan
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 2 1⁄4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fine salt
- 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, diced into small pieces
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄2 cup heavy cream
- vanilla ice cream or whipped cream
- Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F.
- For the fruit: Halve the nectarines along their natural seam, but leave skins on. Cut each half into 3 wedges. Toss nectarines with blueberries, sugar, and tapioca and put into a buttered 9-inch round gratin or casserole dish. Dot the top of the fruit with the pieces of butter.
- For the cobbler top: Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Rub in 2 tablespoons of the butter with your fingertips until no visible pieces remain. Rub in the remaining 4 tablespoons butter just until it is in even, pea-size pieces. Whisk together the egg and cream and stir into the dry ingredients to make a shaggy, loose dough.
- Spoon large spoonfuls of dough on top of the fruit in clumps (it should look like rough, old-fashioned cobblestones, hence the name cobbler). Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the topping comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool cobbler on a rack, about 20 minutes.
- Serve warm or room temperature, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
What a lovely cobbler Boomie...So tasty. I love the flavor created by the blueberries and nectarines. Sweet, tart and tangy. It was delicious, my dh & neighbors were over the moon. I should mention that the biscuit was incredible....Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe....Baby Kato
Thanks, Boomette, for a great cobbler! I wasn't able to find useable nectarines, so used peaches instead & those, along with the blueberries made for a great dessert! It was so easy to make, & served with some frozen vanilla yogurt, it was wonderful! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
Divine!! Yesterday must have been my day for Food Network, as I also served with Grilled Boneless Sirloin and Vidalia Onion Skewers #428645 and Paula Deen's Grilled Potato Skins #431482. As for the cobbler, I did only use half the sugar in the fruit, also brown sugar in the topping with a dash of vanilla, then put some cinnamon on the top. Mine was done in 40 minutes, so I suggest keeping an eye on it after that time. I was worried about it boiling over, so I did put a cookie sheet on the bottom rack, which I am glad I did! I think half and half would work just fine as well.erved with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and it was delish!
