Homemade Peach Berry Cobbler

Homemade Peach Blueberry Cobbler

Sep 2, 2015 | Desserts | Tags: , , ,

This Homemade Peach Blueberry Cobbler is such a fun dessert to serve your family and friends…don’t forget the ice cream!

Bringing back an oldie but a goodie today, this time from 2 years ago.  Can’t get enough of this recipe.

I fully admit that most of my desserts, I just sample then happily share with family and friends.  This one, well, I couldn’t stop!  I practically demolished the whole darn bowl.  There’s something about a warm dessert with ice cream melting on top that is just hard to resist.

I used my homemade pie crust that you can also find in my cookbook on page 202.  It is one of my favorite recipes.  It comes out buttery and flaky every time I make it.  I developed a peach and blueberry filling that is sweet and warm.

Trust me on this one, you will want to make it….sooner than later.  It’s truly the perfect dessert for any time of the year :)

Enjoy friends!
