My best friend from residency is working in a clinic that isn't associated with the hospital...so I don't get to see her at work anymore. I think we're going to try to get together a couple of times a month for sure to visit and let K and Lukie play together. We decided that we should cook out for July 4th. So, after we came up with the big plan (hamburgers and hotdogs with fruit salad) I asked D what he wanted for dessert. "Cherry or apple pie." Hmmm...we had just had blueberry pie a week or so ago but he says "I like pie."
The recipe for cobbler I found was pretty simple. Just put the fruit on the bottom and top with a batter. It was a bit difficult to spread.
4 cups fruit, prepared as appropriate
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup butter/margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup self rising flour (original recipe said 1 cup flour and 1 tsp baking powder)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup boiling water
1 tsp corn starch (ooops...I used 1 tbsp!)
Preheat oven to 375. Spray 13X9 pan with cooking spray. Pour prepared fruit in bottom of pan. In a mixer, cream butter and 3/4 cup sugar. Stir in flour. Then add milk and vanilla. Spread this over the fruit. Heat water to boiling and dissolve remaining 3/4 cup sugar and corn starch. Pour over top of batter. Place in preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until browned. Enjoy topped with ice cream and in the presence of friends and family!
