Post Biscuit-Topped Cobbler With Mixed Fruit

Biscuit-Topped Cobbler With Mixed Fruit

Serves 8.

1 tablespoon butter
3 cups peeled, sliced peaches
4 cups blueberries
1 cup blackberries
4 tablespoons flour
2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Biscuit topping:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup milk (skim or reduced-fat is fine)
1/4 cup heavy cream
Flour and sugar for finishing biscuits

PREHEAT oven to 425 degrees. Coat a 1 1/2- to 2-quart baking dish liberally with butter. Combine the fruit, flour, sugar and cinnamon in a mixing bowl and toss gently but well. Pour into the baking dish, scraping in any sugar left in the bowl.

MAKE the biscuits by sifting together the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Cut the butter into the dough using your fingertips or a pastry blender. Stir in the milk and cream with 15 to 20 strokes and turn onto a floured surface. Knead lightly to bring the dough together, then roll out with a floured rolling pin to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough with a round or diamond-shaped cutter dipped in flour. Sprinkle the tops with sugar.

PLACE the biscuits on top of the fruit. Bake about 35 minutes, or until biscuits are lightly browned and fruit is bubbling. (Shield top with foil if the biscuits are browning too fast.)
