Peach and blueberry cobbler is a traditional dessert that is popular in the southern United States. It is typically made by baking a mixture of sliced peaches and blueberries that are sweetened with sugar and topped with a biscuit-like crust. The crust is usually made with a combination of flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, and milk, and it is dropped in spoonfuls over the top of the fruit mixture before baking.
The cobbler is then baked until the fruit is bubbling and the crust is golden brown and crispy. It can be served warm or at room temperature, and is often topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
Peach and blueberry cobbler is a delicious and comforting dessert that is perfect for summer and early fall when these fruits are in season. It is also a great way to use up any extra peaches or blueberries that you may have on hand.
