    Serves: 9



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups flour
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar, plus a bit more for sprinkling
    • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
    • 4 cups fresh fruit, peeled and cut into chunks


    1. 1
      Combine the flour and sugar.
    2. 2
      Add the butter, mixing as you go, until the mixture forms a soft dough. It can be slightly crumbly, but you want it to hold together when you squeeze it.
    3. 3
      Spray a 9x9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
    4. 4
      Put the fruit in the dish — you will probably need about 4 cups of berries or chopped fruit. You want to create a thick layer that comes about two inches up the sides.
    5. 5
      If the fruit is particularly tart, sprinkle with a light layer of sugar. If the fruit is soft and sweet, you don't need it.
    6. 6
      Take the dough by the handful and pat it into disks that are about 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick. Lay them on top of the fruit, continuing with the patties, until it is covered.
    7. 7
      Bake the cobbler at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes, until the crust is light golden brown. Let cool slightly, then serve with ice cream.

      Boy was this delicious. We really enjoyed this simple cobbler. The flavor was out of this world. I used a combination of pears, raspberries and blueberries. We really enjoyed the sweet, crisp, shortbread topping. Thank you so much for sharing this treat. Made for Fall/Pac/09 :)

      This certainly was a nice treat for my family, it was ver easy and fast to put together. I used some apples that I had in my back yard and some peaches, and sprinkled some berries that I had frozen, it looked GREAT!!! I almost did'nt want to eat but I also could'nt resist sinking my teeth into it...mmmmmmmmmmm I served it with vanilla ice-cream. Thank you so much for posting.
