As the end of summer nears and the weather begins to cool, all I want are warm, comforting desserts. This simple cobbler combines both juicy peaches and sweet and sour plums, topped with a buttery and crisp topping. The best part: this late-summer dessert only takes just over an hour to whip together. PS — don’t forget the ice cream!

Peach Plum Cobbler

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Bake Time: 45 – 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
Servings: 6 to 8

Ingredients:

Base
4 cups sliced peaches, skin on
4 cups sliced plums, skin on
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup cornstarch
¾ tsp cinnamon
Pinch salt
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

Topping
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup + 1 Tbsp granulated sugar, divided
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
1 cup heavy cream

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Slice the peaches and plums and place in a large bowl. Toss with brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt and vanilla extract. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the topping ingredients: flour, ¼ cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, rub the butter into the flour until about pea-sized. Create a well in the centre, pour in the heavy cream and with a fork, work the dough until it comes together, it will be slightly wet.
