End of Summer Mixed Berry Cobbler

This post should really be titled Saying Goodbye to Summer with Peach Berry Cobbler and Sour Cream Biscuits, but that was too long.

Just last weekend we were at the Farmer’s Market on a beautiful end of summer day (highs not reaching any higher than 80 degrees). The kids played in the creek, not minding that their clothes were more wet than dry.

Today it has been drizzling since I woke up. Our high is a mere 58 degrees, last I checked. I have dinner rolls rising and a pot of corn chowder in the works. How is it that just a few days ago we were enjoying our second batch of this delicious, summer Peach Mixed Berry Cobbler with Sour Cream Biscuits?

I don’t know if this will be the weather change that leads us into fall or if we’ll bounce right back in a few days, but either way I feel that we’ve given summer a proper send off.

Peaches, Peaches and more Peaches. Berries. Corn on the Cob. Saturday at the Farmer’s Market. Playing in the Creek. The kids in school. “Baby” girl turns 5. Summer is definitely leading into the things of fall here in Colorado.

Summer, you were exhausting this year but you kind of rocked too.

We moved. And survived. We did the pool thing. A lot. The kids finally learned how to swim. We made it to the Zoo, Aquarium, Nederland, Children’s Museum, Library x20, and Boulder Reservoir. Made popsicles! We ate up all your fantastic fruits and vegetables. And now it’s time to say goodbye.

How to Make Mixed Berry Cobbler

This is a such an easy berry cobbler recipe — but then again, pretty much all fruit cobblers are a cinch to make! To make the peach berry cobbler base, simply slice the peaches and toss with the rest of the ingredients in a baking dish.

Pop the peach and mixed berry cobbler into the oven to bake for 10 minutes and make the sour cream biscuits while it bakes.

To make the biscuits, whisk together the dry ingredients before cutting in the butter with a pastry cutter or fork. Then gently stir in the sour cream until a dough forms.

After the peach mixture has baked for 10 minutes, drop the sour cream biscuits on top and continue baking until the biscuits are golden brown.

Should I Peel the Peaches?

Some people prefer the peaches peeled in peach blueberry cobblers such as this. The peel, however, does not bother me or my family so we leave it on to save time. If you prefer peeled peaches, see this tutorial: How to Peel a Peach.

How Do I Store Cobbler?

You can keep fruit cobblers at room temperature for a couple days. Just make sure to cover them loosely with aluminum foil and keep them in a cooler part of your kitchen.

Tips for Making Mixed Berry Cobbler

This easy berry cobbler is pretty much impossible to mess up, but there are a few things to keep in mind as you’re making it.

First, it’s important that you not over mix the sour cream biscuit dough after you’ve added the sour cream. Mix the dough just until it comes together and then stop. If you over mix, your sour cream biscuits will be tough and chewy.

You also need the butter to be fridge cold when you cut it into the biscuit dough. If the butter is too warm, the biscuits won’t have the right texture once they’re cooked.

Finally, I don’t recommend using a sour cream substitute in the biscuits. Greek yogurt may work, but real sour cream is best here.

More Easy Summer Desserts:

Love the taste of cherry dump cake? Then you’ll love this Black Cherry Pomegranate Cobbler. It’s totally homemade and I use frozen cherries to keep things easy.

Need a super simple dessert that will feed a crowd? Make these Raspberry Angel Food Cake Parfaits. You can use a store-bought cake if you’re in a hurry.

This Apple Crisp with Oatmeal Pecan Crumble Topping tastes just like the classic dessert, only slightly elevated.

If you’re craving something slightly healthier but still sweet, make a batch of Strawberry Mango Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips. Everyone goes crazy for this recipe!

It doesn’t get much easier than these 4-Ingredient Key Lime Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches. My kids love these, and so do I!

Peach & Mixed Berry Cobbler with Sour Cream Biscuits

Peach & Mixed Berry Cobbler with Sour Cream Biscuits

Yield: 8 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

This peach and mixed berry cobbler is topped with homemade sour cream biscuits. This is the ultimate end of summer dessert!

Ingredients

For the Fruit Filling:

  • 2 pounds ripe, but firm peaches*
  • 1/4 cup Organic Cane Sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • dash nutmeg
  • 8 ounces raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 8 ounces blueberries, fresh or frozen

For the Sour Cream Biscuits:

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Organic Cane Sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup sour cream

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the rack in the lower-middle position.

For the Fruit Filling:

  1. Halve and pit each peach. Cut each half into 4-6 slices, depending on the size of your peach (mine were extra large). Toss the peaches with the sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and nutmeg. Stir to combine. Gently fold in the berries.
  2. Place the fruit mixture in a oven safe 3.5 quart casserole dish or cast iron pan. I prefer my Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 3.5 -Quart Round Braiser.
  3. Bake, uncovered, for 12 minutes. During this time, prepare the biscuits.

For the Sour Cream Biscuits:

  1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Whisk until well sifted. Add the butter. Using either 2 knives, a food processor, or a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until is resembles a coarse meal. For a food processor about 10 1-2 second pulses will do the trick.
  2. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, stir in the sour cream until a cohesive dough is formed. Take care not to over mix. This causes tough biscuits.
  3. Divide the dough into 10 evenly sized amounts and roughly shape them into mounds. After the peach mixture has baked for 10 minutes, arrange the dough on top of the baked fruit.
  4. Return to the oven and bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes, or until the biscuits are a golden brown and the fruit is bubbling. Cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Notes

*Some prefer the peaches peeled in desserts such as this. The peel, however, does not bother me or my family so we leave it on to save time. If you prefer peeled peaches, see this tutorial: How to Peel a Peach.
