Is there anything better than a fresh peach cobbler topped with ice cream? Best make that call after you taste this one with blackberries and our Mascarpone Cream.
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
4 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches (about 4 large)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups fresh blackberries
How to Make It
Prepare Streusel: Stir together first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; add flour and pecans, and stir until blended. Let stand 20 minutes or until mixture is firm enough to crumble into small pieces.
Meanwhile, prepare Filling: Preheat oven to 375°. Stir together peaches and next 3 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, and boil, stirring occasionally, 6 to 7 minutes or until juices have thickened. Remove from heat, and stir in blackberries. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 9-inch square baking dish. Crumble streusel over hot peach mixture.
Bake at 375° for 30 to 35 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.
I've made this 2 times and both times I thought there was no liquid in the peach mix to let it come to a boil! Either I had really dry fresh peaches or I missed something in the recipe. However, we couldn't eat it fast enough!!
Made this last night for dessert and I must say it has gained a place in the front of my recipe file. As a lover of fruit cobblers, I found the combination of peaches and blackberries delicious, and the praline topping was so good without using the usual oats, which I personally do not care for, but still crisp and crunchy. This was a big hit with my family, especially with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. I plan to serve it the next time I have company or take a covered dish to church. So good!
Oh my! So delish! I cut the butter back to 6 tablespoons rather than 8 to lighten it up a little. It was fine. I didn't have pecans so I subbed sliced almonds and it added a nice crunch. My husband and I loved it! When the kids get home, they'll get to test it too.
I made this for breakfast at work to rave reviews. I used salted butter and omitted the 1/8th called for, substituted rolled oats for the pecans (1:1) because of a nut allergy, and reduced the sugar by half (used 1/4 cup). The streusel is great for a morning start, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it for dessert either. This one is definitely going in my cobbler repetoire!
