If you are anything like my husband and I, you get a late night sweet tooth. It always seems to creep up around 9 o’clock, just as we are winding down for the night.
Sure enough, last night was one of those nights where the pangs of hunger for dessert started rumbling around in our bellies. Walter and I had just finished the series finale of The Office - for what has to be the third time watching the entire series through together, which does not count the times Caroline and I wistfully watched Jim Halpert every week in high school - when I decided that we couldn’t possibly go to bed without first having something sweet. Luckily enough, I had picked up a bunch of produce earlier at the market in anticipation of this exact scenario.
Below is the recipe for Cherry Berry Cobbler, complete with vanilla bean whipped cream! I know, I know, it’s a TON of butter. However, my beautiful Hungarian grandmother credits her flawless, wrinkle-free, porcelain skin entirely to butter fat. If it’s good enough for Grandma, it works for me!
Berry Cherry Cobbler
- 2 cups blackberries
- 2 cups blueberries
- 1 cup cherries, halved and pitted
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 quarter lime
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- For fruit filling, mix berries and cherries with white sugar, flour, and the juice from quartered lime in a large bowl
- Place dry ingretients together in mixing bowl. Mix on low, slowly adding butter until mixture crumbles
- Spread fruit filling evenly in a greased casserole dish
- Sprinkle crisp topping over fruit filling
- Bake for 45 minutes
- As cobbler bakes, whisk heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract
- Slice open vanilla and scrape beans into the whipped cream, continue to mix until thick and fluffy
There you have it! A delicious cobbler perfect to serve warm from the oven with a dollop of whipped cream and a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Now get to bed!
