How does an easy Blueberry Peach Skillet Cobbler sound for a quick summer dessert? This tasty treat has juicy peaches and blueberries with a crunchy oatmeal topping. You can kick it up with some vanilla ice cream too!
I've really been craving peaches this year and glad to see they are starting to make an appearance in the stores. Eating a peach is just so summery and the juicier they are the better! Even if that means the juice is running down my arm like when I was a kid. Really, that happened more than once! I'm sure my mom didn't like that sticky mess but she never turned us down when we wanted them.
I bought a big-o-box of peaches from Trader Joe's earlier in the week with the plan of making peach cobbler. Well, I forgot to mention it to the DIY Guy and he had almost polished them off. So when I went to start baking today, I found that I didn't have enough. And since I really did not want to jump in the car and buy some more, I noticed I had some blueberries leftover from when I made my last recipe of Blueberry Hand Pies. Whew - crisis averted!
The blueberries and the peaches make a great combination. A couple years ago, I made a puffed pastry tart with these ingredients that has a yummy vanilla glaze. It is also a great summer dessert especially if you are having company or need to bring a dessert to a party.
