Fresh Fruit Cobbler

Well, after the coin toss , the cobbler won.

I found three lonely nectarines in my fridge so they were quickly sliced and mingled with the fresh picked black raspberries, a marriage made in heaven!

As promised, here is the recipe for the biscuit dough placed over the fruit mixture, which is basically 5 to 6 cups of berries and/or other fruit plus grated zest and juice of lemon, a couple of pats of butter, and a dusting of granulated sugar, all placed in a shallow baking pan.

2 cups flour

1 teas. salt

1 tablesp. baking powder

1 tablesp. sugar

4 tablesp. chilled butter cut in small pieces

1 cup either heavy or light cream (you choose your calories)

Stir all dry ingred. together then rapidly blend butter into flour mixture using fingertips.  Gradually add cream, stirring with fork till dough holds together, forming a ball.  Do not overwork mixture!

Roll out dough on lightly floured surface until 1/4 inch thick.  Set aside.

Place fruit mixture in baking dish.  Scatter with lemon zest, lemon juice, butter sugar.  Lay rolled out dough over fruit so edges do not quite touch sides of dish.  Cut if necessary.  Also cut a few steam vents at least 1/4 inch wide.

In preheated 400 degree oven bake for 30 to 35 minutes, till dough is browned.  Set on rack to cool for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and spoon onto plates.  I can’t imagine eating a piece of cobbler without a huge dollop of whipped cream, but that’s just me.
