Berry Good

This weekend brought record high temperatures here in Southern California and the last thing I wanted to do was hang out in front of a hot oven! Thankfully this weeks TWD was a Mixed Berry Cobbler- maximum enjoyment for minimum effort.
I'm already a big cobbler fan (check out my "Peaches Two Ways" post), plus how can you not love a dessert that is such a perfect vehicle for ice cream?

I used fresh blueberries, blackberries and a few strawberries from Trader Joes, substituted 2 out of 3 tablespoons of white sugar for dark brown sugar, and added a tablespoon of cinnamon.

Since I used a shallow 9inch pie pan, I had enough fruit and dough left over to make a whole cobbler as well as these to mini ones in ramekins. Aren't they cute?

Those little ramekins are very cute...they really show off the cobbler. Wonderful job on the cobbler, but then it sounds like you have a lot of experience there...peach cobbler, yum!

The mini-cobblers are cute! I've said it before, but I really wish I had a Trader's Joe around here. Great work with your Trader's Joe finds!

A vehicle for delivering ice cream indeed. Great job with this week's assignment.

Lovely! Yes, ice cream is so good on cobbler. I like the fruit part a lot too. Hey, it's all good! Especially with such a nice presentation in the ramekins.
