End of Summer Mixed Berry Cobbler

When Labor Day Weekend rolled around this year, I knew that I wanted to make a cobbler. Cobblers are one of my favorite desserts, and I love that they are always so different depending on the fruit that you use. 

I bought some fresh berries at the store, and decided that I would make a mixed berry cobbler to enjoy at our Labor Day picnic. 


This recipe originated at Bake or Break. Jennifer has a HUGE collection of breads, desserts and other treats that all just seem so delicious. Now that I have my very own Kitchen Aid Mixer, I am so excited to try out some more baked goods.


Ingredients: 

3-4 cups assorted berries chopped into bite size chunks
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Lemon zest to taste

Directions:

-Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 9”x 6” rectangular or 8” round baking dish. (I used a 8"x 8" square pan.
-Place the berries in prepared pan. Drizzle with lemon juice. This is where you can add in some lemon zest for a very fresh flavor.
-Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
-In a medium bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla until well-blended. Mix in the dry ingredients until mixture resembles crumbs. Drop the dough crumbs evenly on top of the berry mixture.
-Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden and the fruit is bubbling.

This is delicious when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a nice dollop of whipped cream. It makes a wonderful, fresh dessert (or breakfast, if you are me), for the end of summer.
