This recipe for Southern Peach and Berry Cobbler screams summer and comfort. Summer is the season we find ourselves in, and I find comfort in country music artist Elise Harper who inspired me to share this family recipe. She is an amazing entertainer, but more importantly, a straight shooter. You always know where Elise stands, and I like that!
Let’s Talk, cobbler! I like putting the biscuit mixture on the top. This is primarily due to the crunchy texture you get, but also, we prefer to load our cobbler with as much fruit as we can fit. Plus, when you top it with ice cream, well, let’s just say you might start singing. Cold ice cream on a warm cobbler with a crunchy crust and soft fruit makes me want to raise my voice and my spoon. This recipe for Southern Peach and Berry Cobbler is going to be your family’s favorite dessert for years to come!
