Fresh Fruit Cobbler
Prep: 30 minutes Cook: 45 minutes
Be sure to use sweet, ripe, seasonal fruit in this recipe. Peaches and nectarines are delicious. For a fresh strawberry pie, see hint below.
- 4 cups fresh peaches or nectarines, sliced
- 1/3 cup apricot preserves
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 3 tbsp flour
- 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
- 2 tbsp cornmeal
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place the sliced peaches in a bowl. Combine the preserves, lemon juice and nutmeg together in another bowl. Spoon over the peaches and mix gently. Sprinkle the flour on the top and then mix again. Place in a 9 inch pie plate. Bake for 30 minutes.
Place the oats and cornmeal in a bowl. Combine maple syrup and vanilla and pour over the oat mixture. Mix well.
Remove the cobbler from the oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees. Crumble the oat mixture over the pie filling and return to oven. Bake for an additional 15 minutes. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving. Scoop the cobbler out with a large spoon and serve with vanilla non-dairy ice cream for a special treat. May be served warm or cold.
Hint: For a fresh strawberry pie, substitute sliced fresh strawberries for the peaches and strawberry preserves for the apricot preserves. Reduce the initial baking time by 10 minutes.
