Summer Fruit Cobbler


One of the most popular desserts in the States is cobbler. It is a deep dish with baked fruit that is topped with dough that looks like cobbles rather than smooth. I don’t think you will ever leave a southern dinner party without eating cobbler. It’s a simple, fresh-baked dessert that celebrates the season’s fruit. Hence, you can alter the recipe with any fruit you like. I decided to use strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. I did find out that you better heat the filling before adding the cobbler topping to ensure that the dough bakes through completely, especially when using strawberries because they produce a lot of water. Nevertheless, it will not lessen the flavours, it just looks prettier. Indulge in this perfect summer dessert and enjoy these fruits while you still can. Scroll down for the recipe.
