PEACH-RASPBERRY COBBLER

Serves 6.

Note: Many peaches are less "fuzzy" these days, so peeling may not be necessary. This recipe is adapted from "The Lee Brothers Simple Fresh Southern" by Matt and Ted Lee.

• 4 c. peaches, in 1-in. pieces

• 1 c. fresh raspberries

• 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

• 1/2 c. brown sugar

• 1/2 tsp. ground ginger

• 1/2 tsp. salt

• 3/4 c. flour

• 1/4 c. fine cornmeal

• 3 tbsp. packed brown sugar

• 11/2 tsp. baking powder

• 1/4 tsp. salt

• 3 tbsp. butter, cut in small pieces

• 1/2 c. buttermilk

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a 2-quart baking dish with butter or baking spray, or divide among individual dishes.

In a bowl, gently mix together peaches, raspberries, lemon juice, brown sugar, ginger and salt. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix the butter into the flour by pinching with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse meal and the butter is evenly distributed. Add the buttermilk and stir until just mixed.

Top the fruit with dollops of the dough, letting the fruit show through.

Bake until the fruit is bubbling and the biscuits are golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degees. Place one rack in bottom position, and another in the upper half of oven. Coat 8-inch-square dish with baking spray.

Combine flour, brown sugar, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, walnuts, salt and vanilla.

Turn out onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and spread into an even layer. Place on bottom rack of oven and bake for 12 minutes.

Remove both fruit and crumble from oven, and uncover the fruit. Crumble the partially baked topping over the fruit and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Return to the lower rack of the oven and bake until fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden, another 15 to 20 minutes, checking after 10 minutes to make sure topping isn't browning too fast.
