Tuesdays With Dorie ~ Mixed Berry Cobbler
Fresh Cherries, blueberries and raspberries found their way into a deep dish stoneware pie pan, sprinkled with some cinnamon and a bit of freshly grated lemon zest all topped with a buttery sweet cobbler dough and a dollop of whipped cream. WOW! That was a mouthful. And indeed, it was!
Baking: From My Home To Yoursis Dorie Greenspan's Bible. The book all 211 Tuesdays With Dorie members have sitting in a prominent position of importance on their kitchen counters. It's the book that gets the most used, splattered and dog-eared out of all the books in their collections. It Is THE One and Only all-purpose baking cookbook that I keep on my boat! I have a few other cookbooks here as well, but none that gets patted and stroked and reverenced like Dorie's.
Thanks to Beth of Our Sweet Life for choosing the Mixed Berry Cobbler a few weeks ago. Yes, I'm playing catch up with a few recipes I missed. And yes, I know this isn't Tuesday, but who cares? It's a Berry Cobbler with blueberries, raspberries and fresh cherries and that's all that matters. You can find the recipe on pages 416-417 in Dorie's book, or you can go straight to Beth's blog for the recipe in all its glory!
It was very, very easy and oh, so refreshing for a summer dessert! If you don't have the berries that are in the recipe, use what you have on hand. It's a very flexible recipe. Just don't use too many strawberries, as they are full of water and will make your cobbler a soupy mess.
We all loved this dessert and it was still good the next day after being refrigerated. I served it with whipped cream one day and vanilla ice cream the next. I used a 10" stoneware pie pan from Pampered Chef, but I would like to try making it in individual ramekins the next time. You can even use a square Pyrex dish too. I would definitely make the Mixed Berry Cobbler again. Maybe with fresh peaches when they're in season! Oh, and maybe plums too. Maybe even some apples, and maybe....
