Blueberry-Peach Cobbler

IMG_9892

I have tried about 100 different cobbler recipes.  And I have always found them lacking.  It’s too much of a biscuit topping, dry and crumbly, it’s too cakey, it’s too dense, it’s not flavorful enough…I’ve eaten them all!

This.  This is the one.  The one that wins.  Flakey, with a bit of a crust, yet moist and delicious.  Yum, yum!

Let the sweet adventure begin!
