    Made this before reading any of the other reviews and I strongly agree...this is delish and will be a summer favorite! I did double the almonds because I love them and will do it that way from now on. Did not have turbinado sugar so used regular and it was fine. This weekend will be the third time we have had this wonderful dessert. It is a great way to enjoy summer berries. Thank you Cooking Light!

    Very easy and delicious! Modifications: I used 2% milk instead of half and half and regular sugar instead of tubinado (did not have either in the house). The recipe will be a summer standard.

    I made this for a dinner with friends, and it was perfect! I did double the sugared almonds as suggested, and I reduced the amount of sugar in the filling (next time I'll probably reduce to 1/3 cup, depending on the sweetness of the fruit). I also turned on the broiler at the end of the cooking time to finish browning the topping. Highly recommended--everyone scraped their bowls!

    Super easy to put together and absolutely delicious. Made it for the new in-laws on the 4th and it was an absolute success! I will absolutely make this dish again.

    Excellent. Next time I would double the almonds for more crunch.

    This was really yummy. I didn't have blackberries yet so substituted raspberries, and used nectarines instead of peaches. It was really great. You could use less sugar depending on the ripeness of your fruit. My topping was quite dense but it's probably because I've never managed to make perfect biscuits! Spreading that mixture out a little thinner (rather than dropping in clumps) would help.

    This was a perfect fourth of July dish. I'm usually not a huge cobbler fan but I think the almonds added a whole new flavor. It was pretty easy to make and my kids loved it. I double the amount of sugared almonds and it turned out yummy.

    ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I made no changes to the recipe and was thrilled with the results!

    This was a delicious summer dessert. I also doubled the sugared almonds, which added flavor and crunch. I don't think the filling needs so much added sugar, the fruit is sweet enough. I might add a little more sugar to the topping next time, though. I was surprised that the topping tasted like a biscuit and really didn't have any sweetness.

    Delicious, quick & easy! I made this last night before my BF's sister arrived for a visit. The house smelled wonderful and it was delicious warm out of the oven. One piece of advice, definately serve with ice cream. I didn't have any in the house and wish I did!!

    I loved this recipe because of the perfect combination of flavors, although I did change a lot of the recipe. I used less sugar, less berries, more peaches, no almonds, and lime juice instead of lemon juice. The berries were tart because I used less sugar and lime juice, but it went beautifully with the sweetness of the crust and vanilla ice cream. I am sure that the almonds would have added a nice crunch, but my mother is allergic so I did not use them. I will definitely make this again.

    Outstanding! Love it! The only change I made was to half the recipe because it's only my husband and I. Served it with light ice cream (slow churned) - it is fantastic. This will be a summer tradition in our house!

    Loved this recipe! I used blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries and it was so good. I cut the recipe in half because I was only serving three people- bad idea! (it worked out fine baking wise just took only about 25-30 min to cook) Everyone wanted more! I would definitely suggest this recipe for any occasion. I served it with low fat vanilla frozen yogurt- very good. I used sugar in the raw for the "turbinado" sugar without even knowing that that was what is was anyways. My topping was super thick though and very hard to spread.

    This was fantastic - perfect ending to a hot summer day. The almonds were a great addition (I used regular sugar) I would double the almonds next time.

    I made this recipe with white peaches, blackberries, and blueberries, and it was sickeningly sweet. The cobbler/biscuit part was delicious, but the fruit filling was just far too sweet for my taste. I don't think I'd make it again, but if I did, I'd definitely omit the peach and use maybe 1/4 of the sugar.

    Perfectly balanced and loads of fruit. This will become a family favorite!

    LOVE IT! As other reviewers suggested, I doubled the almond/sugar/egg white mixture and it ended up being the perfect amount. I used a food processor to cut the butter in with the dry ingredients, which worked well also. Served over vanilla bean ice cream, this is a warm little piece of berry heaven.

    This recipe makes such a delicious dish. It is really easy to put together, and has been quite a crowd pleaser for me several times. Although it calls for certain fruit, I have found that many fruit combination work, including plums, and bananas. So if you do not have exactly the balance of fruit that the recipe calls for, just get enough fruit. I guess mine have often been heavy on the blueberries. It gets a little tropical with bananas, but is still yummy. The almonds with the turbinado sugar, make it particularly good, with a special crunch in the fruit and cobble.

    I made this recipe for a get-together with coworkers and it was a big success. However, I felt that there were too many berries and not enough cobbler. It just seemed a little soupy. When I make this recipe again, I will probably double the recipe for the cobbler topping. I'm sure this will make it less diet-friendly, but it's dessert, so I'm okay with that. Also, I would probably add another peach to the mix. As it was, the berries definitely overpowered the peach slices. It was yummy, but I'd like to taste more of the peaches! *Update* I've made this recipe a few more times, with alterations, and it's very good. I've found that doubling the amount of cobbler is too much, so one and a half the amount seems to be the perfect ratio of fruit to cobbler. I've also made this cobbler with just berries instead of the peaches, and it's pretty tasty that way with ice cream! It would also be good with whipped cream.

    The cobbler was very easy to make, but I found it quite soupy. I used 4 peaches and did not include the lemon juice. I used more almonds. A very tasty dessert for summer berries and peaches. Next time, I will add more peaches. Definitely serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

    I made this yesterday with some outstanding, fresh, flavorful peaches and berries. I followed the recipe exactly, but I wasn't impressed with the results. The topping was bland, although I loved the texture. There was too much lemon juice mixture, making the dish taste slightly of lemonade, which took away from the natural peach/berry flavor. I would cut back on the lemon mixture and find a way to make the topping more flavorful.

    I reduced the amount of butter, used white whole wheat flour rather than regular, and used milk instead of half-and-half. It was fantastic. This is delicious and easy to make and has become a family favorite. One of the best summer fruit desserts I've had in years. High recommended.
