Whoa, Nelly, do I love this sweet, Southern dessert! I could eat it for breakfast – with ice cream. 🙂
Did you know that cobbler apparently dates back to Colonial times? Settlers were accustomed to making a fancier “pudding” with fruit and breading, but didn’t have access all of the necessary cooking equipment and ingredients. So, instead they essentially dumped a mixture of what dough/bread ingredients they did have, over whatever fruit was in season, and VOILA – Cobbler.
Now, of course you can make it with any fruit you like, but I have a sweet spot for Summertime and the fruits that come with it. ..think wild black berries, peaches, or blueberries, like the recipe I am sharing with you today!
I’m going to assume there wasn’t much opportunity to top “Colonial Cobbler” with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, but in today’s day, IT IS A MUST! *VANILLA BEAN* You are welcome. ..Because you will thank me later.
