PEACH-APRICOT COBBLER
Desserts
Contributed by: Vickie Hinnant
Ingredients:
  • 1 (1 lb. 13 oz.) can sliced peaches
  • 1 (10 1/2 oz.) can apricot halves
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 TBS cornstarch
  • 1 TBS butter
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 TBS butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • Garnish:
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 TBS honey, at room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Drain cans of fruit, reserving juice.
In a medium saucepan, mix together sugar and cornstarch. Stir in 1?2 cup each of reserved peach and apricot juices. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, while mixture boils and thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Stir in butter, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add peaches and apricots. Spoon mixture into a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.
To make topping, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter and egg. Spoon topping over fruit mixture.
Bake cobbler until topping is golden, about 30 minutes. Transfer casserole dish to a wire rack to cool slightly.
To prepare garnish, beat together cream, honey and cinnamon at medium speed until soft peaks form.
Serve cobbler warm, topped with spiced whipped cream.
Note: Any combination of plums, pears, pineapple or mandarin oranges may be used as well.
