Brown Sugar Berry Cobbler

"The perfect dessert as we celebrate summer with family and friends. You may need to double, because everyone will come back for more!"

Serves 6


1 cup plus 1 teaspoon packed dark brown sugar

2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch

2 pounds mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries or raspberries)

4 medium peaches, chopped

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 ½ sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces

3/4 cup whole milk

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 425°F with rack in middle.

Stir together brown sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl. Add berries & peaches and toss to coat. Transfer mixture to a shallow 3-qt baking dish and bake until mixture is hot, about 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add butter and blend with your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal with some roughly pea-size butter lumps. Add milk and stir until dough just comes together.

Remove baking dish from oven and drop 12 mounds of dough onto hot berries. Stir together remaining tsp brown sugar and granulated sugar and sprinkle over dough. Bake cobbler until topping is golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool for about 30 minutes.

Serve with dollop of whip cream or ice cream.
