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?
