MMMMMMMMore Baking

Dear Mom,

We have been busy baking (and eating!) our Farmers' Market blueberries and peaches.  Blueberry Muffins and Peach-a-Berry Cobbler were yesterday's treats.  I got the recipes from Acorn Farms and share the Peach-a-Berry Cobbler recipe here.  OH. YUM!!!  My favorite cobbler so far . . . .

Peach-A-Berry Cobbler
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water
3 cups (approx. 5) fresh peaches, sliced and peeled
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
100% TLW (Tender Loving Wendy = cinnamon-sugar-nutmeg sprinkles for top)

For topping: stir together flour, sugar and baking powder.  Add the milk and butter all at once.  Stir until smooth; set aside.
For filling: in a medium saucepan, stir together brown sugar and cornstarch, then stir in water.  Add peaches and blueberries.  Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly.  Add 1 Tbsp. butter and lemon juice and still until butter melts.  Pour into a 1 1/2 qt. ungreased casserole dish.  Spoon topping in mounds over hot filling, then spread evenly over filling.  Sprinkle with 100% TLW.
Bake cobbler in a 350-degree oven for approx. 35 minutes.  Serve warm with ice cream!

Love, Wendy
