Where O Where have I been . . . you ask?
I’ve been locked out of my blog.
Really. It seems that someone out there, really wants to dig into the “roots” and get down & dirty. I have a great server (InMotion VPS Hosting), and when someone other than myself continually tries to log-on unsuccessfully, it lock’s down! It’s a bit annoying, but a safe-guard that I’m also thankful for.
So . . . get over it . . . move-on . . . get lost . . . I’m a small fish in a big sea, and besides . . . I’ve got posting to do!
This Old Fashioned Cobbler is one of my husbands favorite desserts. I think it’s because it’s not over the top sweet. The original recipe is just . . . Good Peach Cobbler. Peaches are certainly plentiful, sweet and juicy this time of year, so it’s the perfect excuse for a cobbler or crisp.
It’s hard to even see the peaches in the pictures, since I tossed in big beautiful blueberries as well. They tend to turn everything a purple blue hue. I’ve added Raspberries before, and even huckleberries to this biscuit type cobbler and it always turns out DELICIOUS. We like a bit of Whipped Cream on the warm Cobbler, but a scoop of ice cream is also tempting and it’s never turned away. I tend to really brown the biscuits, since dough-y biscuits tend to be less than desirable!
. . . just thought you might like to know,
Every time I make this cobbler, my husband says the same thing.
he says . . .
“This is really good, but you should double the peach & berry mixture, that sits under the biscuits.”
I say . . .
“That’s a good idea.”
FYI: Every time I make this Cobbler: I FORGET! If you forget, it will still be gobbled up. Every last bite!
This Cobbler is also delicious with just peaches. Raspberries, Huckleberries are also great in place of the blueberries!
