Peach & Strawberry Cobbler


Yesterday I made my first cobbler. I probably would have made a crisp, but I'm out of oats. So I decided to try something new. Totally worth it and just as easy as making a crisp. A lot of the time when I bake I use Splenda instead of sugar. And if I can I try to use reduce fat margarine instead of butter.  If you'd like to make a delicious cobbler, you'll need: 1 pint of strawberries, 4 peaches, and a couple of nectarines. Cut up all of your fruit into 1/2 inch pieces. Toss them in 3 tablespoons of Splenda, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Pour your fruit into a baking dish and bake for 10 minutes in a 425F oven. While that's getting juicy and delicious, whisk together 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of Splenda, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/2 a teaspoon of salt in a bowl. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, blend in 6 tablespoons of margarine. When these are combined you should have a cornmeal consistency. Finally, stir in 1/4 cup of boiling water until just combined. Take the fruit out of the oven and then spoon this mixture on top. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes. It's not a fancy dessert but what it lacks in beauty it makes up for in taste.


Happy Thursday!
