Peach & Blackberry Cobbler

Oh my, I’m so sorry. I did not mean to be away from my blog for so long. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. We had a lovely time relaxing and visiting with friends and family during the holidays, and we also stuffed ourselves full with all sorts of holiday goodies, which is probably why I haven’t felt like baking – until now.

For some reason, we have been having some very unusual warm weather for the past couple of days, with temperatures in the low to mid 40’s. This has led to rapid snow melt during the day, which you don’t usually see here during the month of January. As I write this, at 8:30am Alaska time, it is currently 40 degrees. It appears we are in for yet another day of warm, almost Spring-like, weather.

Even though I know it is way too soon, these warmer temperatures and rapid snow melt are having me longing for Spring and Summer. This is probably why I had a desire to bake this delicious cobbler filled with some of my favorite summer-time fruits, peaches and blackberries.

Cobbler is such a classic comfort food, and it’s extremely easy to make. Whether I use fresh or frozen fruit, it always turns out absolutely delicious. A warm dish of cobbler, topped with ice cream or whipped cream, is hard to beat in my book.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

~Enjoy~

  1. Your cobbler looks delicious. The reason you were so warm is that your very cold weather came down here to Tennessee — we were actually colder than Anchorage for a couple of days. Feel free to take back your cold weather any time.

    • Oh, that’s where our cold weather went. :) Give me a few more days of warm weather George, and then you can send it back our way. ;)

  2. I have lots of frozen fruit I can use up with this recipe. Thanks!
