Stone fruits are going crazy right now, and I can't get enough of them. I'm going nuts making cobblers, crisps, pies, salads...anything I can think of that uses them. This recipe came from aunt Nini, who says it's her best version yet (and that's saying a lot because she's an amazing cook.) She did it with fresh berries, but you can use any fruit you want. I made a couple adjustments in my version: used whole wheat pastry flour instead of white flour, and tossed in some flax seeds for some added fiber and omega-3s. (This flax seed thing is my new favorite thing to do, by the way. I put them in rice crispy treats, muffins, crisps, on pasta...why not?) As far as the fruit goes, most of the stone fruits are so sweet right now, you don't need to add anything to them. Just slice them up, top with the cobbler, and bake.
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup dark brown sugar (light is ok, too)
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
2 Tbsps butter or Earth's Balance
2 Tbsps flax seeds (optional)
~3 cups sliced stone fruit, berries, etc. (enough to generously cover the bottom of the dish.)
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease ~8x8 baking dish. Combine crust ingredients until crumbly. Put the fruit in the dish and top with cobbler crust. Bake for 45 min. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
