I had a hankering (is that a word?) for cobbler. But I didn’t just want any old cobbler. I wanted a mixed fruit, so I dug up my favorite recipe and looked at what fruit I had available. I came up with peaches and nectarines from the farmers market, fresh picked blueberries from a friends garden and pomegranate juice which I seem to be in love with right now.  On a hot day like today, we had to have some vanilla ice cream to go with it as well. Let’s just say someone else went out for that, I have a cobbler to make!
You will need:
  • 3 cups of blueberries
  • 2 cups fresh sliced peaches
  • 2 cups fresh sliced nectarines
  • 2 cups of Bisquick mix
  • 1 cup of pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp of almond extract
  • 1 tsp teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks melted and set aside)
  • 2 cups of sugar
This will go into a 9×11 Pyrex glass dish. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, add your dry ingredients. Then pour in the pomegranate juice and milk and mix until thoroughly combined.

Slice your peaches and nectarines, removing most all of the skin. No need to get super picky.  We want rustic and fresh right?
In a large mixing bowl, add your fruit and pour the sugar over giving them all a toss.

Bake for approximately one hour or until crust is a golden brown.
cob13Serve warm, or let it cook. Either way, this is going to be a delicious end to any meal or if you’re like me, a sweet treat in the middle of the day!
cob14I love the edges where the fruit gets all sticky. Come on!! You know that is the best part!  Serve with a scoop of ice cream and a dollop of whip cream. For that special guest, garnish with mint and you have a restaurant quality finish. All I know is it took care of my hankering!
