Peach Berry Cobbler

Last week Mom and I headed out to pick some blueberries. Originally we were just going to pick a few, not enough for jam but enough to snack on and maybe some to freeze. Oh man, we ended up with about 4 litres. There were also so many raspberries! We just couldn't stop picking. So now we have a freezer full of berries and I'm making everything and anything I can with them. Since peach season is also coming to a close I decided to throw them into this cobbler as well. 


2 cups raspberries
2 cups blueberries
3 large peaches, pitted and cubed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
4 teaspoon baking powder
5 tablespoon sugar
5 tablespoon butter, cold and cubed
1 cup 2% milk

2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 F and lightly grease a glass baking dish or cast iron pan. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the fruit with the lemon juice and vanilla. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, sugar and cinnamon. Combine the fruit and flour mixture until the fruit is lightly coated. Pour into your pan and set aside.

In a large bowl stir together the flour, baking powder and sugar. Using two knives or a pastry cutter, cut the butter into this flour mixture until it forms into a crumbly, sand like mixture. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk. Mix together just until moist and mostly holding together. Break the dough into small, lightly flattened balls and place onto the fruit. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before serving.
