While I liked this very much I would make the following changes: Use less sugar in the topping and more in the fruit; increase the fruit and/or omit the water so it will be less soupy and have more concentrated fruit flavor. Read More

Delicious but way too soupy. I had to eat it with a spoon! Next time I'll add more fruit less cornstarch/water mixture. I'll also double the topping next time as I had barely enough to cover the fruit. Read More

This was good, peaches and blueberries are always a great combination. However, I had two small problems with the recipe. Firstly, I found the fruit layer a drop too tart. I usually cut the sugar in recipes, but here even I think it needs more sweetner. In addition, as a I try more and more cobblers I'm finding that there are two basic types - with the dough on top or the dough on bottom. It seems that when the dough is on top (like it is here) you tend to get a compote with cake floating on top, not a real cobbler. I think I'm going to keep looking for more dough on bottom recipes.

Very quick and easy. I used frozen peaches from last summer and it turned out great! The topping more cake like (like my grandmother's) vs. biscuit like (like my mother's). The dish needs to be at least 8" sqaure and 2" deep - my dish was a bit shallow and a lot of the juices ran over. Read More

Wonderful cobbler! (Note that the crust is cake-like.) The only change I made was to add 1/4 tsp. cinnamon as well as the 1/4 tsp. nutmeg to the sugar coating. Serving warm with vanilla ice cream is a must! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I too added the blueberries at the end of the cooking-fruit-process so they would be more likely to stay whole and they did. Nothing at all wrong with this recipe but not GREAT. I like great.:-) I did like the way the batter formed a sort of crunchy crust on top as it baked due to the coarse sugar sprinkling. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This is a great recipe. I made this recipe for the first time in February when peaches were out of season with 4 cups of blueberries and it was wonderful. Well peaches are in season now so I had to try it mixed with the blueberries and it is still to die for. Yum Yum! Read More
