Peach and Strawberry Cobbler

I have a lovely neighbor that shares fresh fruits and vegetables when they can’t eat them while they are still good. She gave me 8 fresh peaches. I also happened to have strawberries in my fridge so I added them in for color and contrast.

You will need:

6 peaches cut into thin slices

1 cup cut strawberries

1 teaspoon of cornstarch

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 a lemon juiced

Mix and set aside. I find that letting it sit for an hour lets the juices begin to run.

You will need for the topping:

2 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/4-1 1/2 sticks of butter ( I find room temperature mixes in best)

Keep a cup of warm water near by in case the mix is not thoroughly coming together.

Mix all the ingredients with a fork. The hope is that the butter will combine with all the dry ingredients and look like corn meal. Add a touch of warm water if you need ( 1 teaspoon at a time). It is not going to ruin this dish either way.

Set the oven at 425 degrees. Put the fruit in the bottom of a baking dish. Cover all the fruit with the flour butter mix, try to cover evenly and thoroughly. Place in the oven for 2-30 minutes. You want it to be bubbly and beginning to brown on top. Serve warm or cold!
