Looking for Some Good Peach and Blackberry Cobbler Recipes

picklelicious Jul 28, 2011 02:01 PM

I am going to make some cobblers for a big dinner in a few weeks. I will be using fresh peaches and blackberries, and would love to see some good resipes for cobblers, preferably with a really good crust/crisp on top. Can anybody help me with some suggestions?

    I just made this peach crumble last night. Double it for a 9 by 13 baking dish.
    Mix 4 to 5 cups s liced peaces, 3 T flour, 1 cup sugar, dash of salt, and a pinch of dry ginger together in a baking dish. In a bowl mix 1 cup flour, 1/2 t salt, and 1/2 t cinnamon. Stir in 1 egg until crumbly. Sprinkle dry mixture evenly over peaches. Drizzle 1 cube melted butter over the top. Bake at 350 about 30 minutes.

        This is wonderful, foolproof, easy and most importantly, delicious. I use the same recipe for any fruit. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/pa.... This is an authentic cobbler recipe, not a crumble. I've made it with 5 cups of blackberries, just peaches, peaches and blueberries, etc. The link shows up in it's entirety until I hit submit, then it goes wonky. No clue why! It's Paula Deen's peach cobbler anyway, that should help. Sorry about the FUBAR link.

            Chef John's blog post today -

            He uses self rising flour and Chinese five spice powder.

              this is the best cobbler (peach or otherwise) I've ever had, and I've spent the last 4 years searching. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo... the biscuit topping strangely enough doesn't have milk or egg, but it's honestly the best I've ever made. It's from Gourmet 1999

                I've liked the cobblers I've made, but haven't found one I love, yet.

                I made a variation of Bittman's Blueberry Cobbler this morning, cutting down on butter a little, and adding a bit of half and half, and using blueberries and yellow plums. http://markbittman.com/blueberry-cobbler

                Will try the epi cobbler next.

                I will second the link posted by blueberrypie on epicurious....best ever and simple and can be doubled or tripled and is great with berries as well as stone fruits....it has a great balance is interesting in that the fruit is less sweet than the buiscut part.....highly reccomended
