Several weeks ago, I came across a cobbler recipe by Ree Drummond, and this week I got a bag full of fresh picked cherries straight from my friend’s yard (thanks, Cindy!!). ¬†So I went back to that cobbler recipe and here’s my version. ūüėÄ

Fruit Cobbler

  • 2 c sugar
  • 2 c flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 c milk
  • 1 c melted butter
  • 4 c washed & patted dry fresh fruit (I used cherries, blackberries, and peaches)
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 Tbsp sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. ¬†Butter or spray with cooking spray a 9×13 pan. ¬†Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt in your mixing bowl. ¬†Add milk and blend well. ¬†Pour in melted butter and stir to combine well. ¬†Pour batter into pan. ¬†Sprinkle fruit over top of batter. ¬†Top fruit with 1/4 c sugar. ¬†Bake for 1 hour or until golden brown. ¬†Optional: ¬†Top with another tablespoon of sugar 10 minutes before baking is complete.

This fruit is beautiful!!

Hello!!  Look at that fruit!!

I can’t even begin to tell you how good this is. ¬†I had to send the rest of the pan up to the church just so I wouldn’t keep eating it!!

Fruit Salad is really one of the easiest things to throw together for dessert.  And the possibilities are endless!!  Take advantage of the fresh fruit that is in season as well as the canned varieties.

Fruit Salad

  • 1 can of no-sugar added fruit cocktail
  • 1 can diced or sliced peaches, light syrup
  • 4 apples, chopped
  • 2 pkg blackberries
  • 2 large handfuls of grapes
  • any other fruit you like (bananas, blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, etc) ¬†(if I had all of these fruits, I would have added them!)

Dump the fruit cocktail and peaches, juice and all in a large bowl. ¬†The juice helps the other fruit to not brown. ¬†Wash and chop the rest of your fruit (what needs to be chopped, at least). ¬†Stir and serve. ¬†For a little extra special treat…dollop a bit of whipped cream on top!
