Cherry Berry CobblerCourse: dessertCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
I love summer because some of my most favorite desserts are made in the summer as I love pies, cobblers, crisps, buckles, and shortcakes. I threw this together rather quickly and used cornstarch because I don’t have quick cooking tapioca at the ranch. That is a staple ingredient I would have at home but cornstarch works just as well. I love mixing berries, cherries, cinnamon/nutmeg/ginger, whatever warming spice I have, sugar or brown sugar or a combination and a little lemon juice. Mix it all together and figure out your topping. I love to add oats to my topping as I love the texture. My kids aren’t the biggest fans of nuts but adding toasted almonds to the topping especially when using cherries or peaches works too. Get creative. You can even add peaches to this. Always finish it off with good quality vanilla bean ice cream especially when the dessert is served warm. YUM!
