Tuesdays with Dorie: Raspberry, Cherry, and Blueberry Cobbler

It's Tuesday. Oh, yum....Even though I'm perspiring in New Orleans, I'm all set to share my Tuesdays with Dorie Treat. I planned ahead by baking last week to bring you this perfect summer fruit cobbler. I'm committed to bringing you bakery style treats each week on the cheap-this one will only cost you about $5.00 for six servings. So join in and bake along.
If you want the perfect post barbecue sweet, choose this cobbler. Hint, hint, think dessert for Fourth of July. Dream of warm juicy summer fruit and berries, tender sweet pastry, and a melting scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
Now quit dreaming and get to work. Be creative with your fruit base. I used frozen raspberries with fresh cherries and blueberries.
Use fresh and/or frozen, depending on what's in season. Think apples and raspberries, nectarines and cranberries, blackberries and plums, peaches and blueberries- you just can't go wrong. Start by making a buttery pastry. It'll take you five minutes, tops. Roll or pat it out and cut out some fun shapes, like patriotic stars. Next mix your fruit with some sugar and flour for thickening. Taste the fruit juices and adjust sugar as needed. Cover with the cobbler dough. Toss it in the oven and bake till browned and bubbly, and if a little juice drips over the side, it's a visual bonus.
Head on over to Our Sweet Life for the complete recipe. You're going to love her header. It'll make you want to kiss your husband. Or wife. Or grandpa. Or baby. Oh, for heaven's sake, just kiss anybody. Then go make some cobbler.

I was lucky enough to have cherries in my frozen berry mix, although they aren't technically berries, and I'm so glad! Your cobbler looks delish!

It IS the perfect July 4 dessert! And so inexpensive. I made mine out of the half-used frozen berries I'd bought for smoothies.
