blueberry peach cobbler

I love me some fruit cobbler!

Yield: 1 cobbler
340 calories per serving, if divided into 12 servings
Active time: 15 minutes
Total time: 75 minutes

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar, separated
1/2 cup brown sugar, separated
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons corn starch
7 peaches, sliced into wedges
1 cup blueberries
6 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup warm water
*the ingredients listed are for 1 cobbler. There are two in the photos because I needed to bake two for a party.

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, combine the peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Stir well to coat.

3. Pour into a large parchment lined baking dish.

4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir well to mix.

6. Using your fingers, blend in the butter with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal.

7. Stir in water until combined.

8. Remove baking dish from the oven and evenly drop spoonfuls of topping over the fruit. Use a plastic spatula to evenly cover the fruit with the topping. (You can see that I wasn't as diligent with spreading the topping on the cobbler on left hand side, which meant a not as streamlined look when baked.)

9. Return to the oven and bake at 350 degrees until topping is golden, about 60 minutes.
