Fruit Cobbler

Fruit Cobbler

This is the most unusual cobbler I have ever made or eaten.  It is almost steamed by the time it’s done baking, but it has a crispy, shiny coating on the top.  You can use any berries or stone fruits.  My absolute favorite combination is strawberry-rhubarb.  Another good combo is blueberry- blackberry- raspberry.  The example here is peach.  I had a bunch in the freezer that needed to be used.
