ingredients

FOR THE CRUST:
  • 1 cup - butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup - sugar
  • 3/4 cup - light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup - crystallized ginger, chopped
  • 1 cup - toasted pecans, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon - baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon - salt
  • 4 cups - all-purpose flour
FOR THE FILLING:
  • 8 cups - fresh blackberries
  • 8 cups - peeled, sliced peaches
  • 3 cups - sugar
  • 3/4 cup - all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon - ground cinnamon
  • pinch - salt
Prep time

Cook Time
1  hour
Serves
8 to 10

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. FOR THE FILLING: Place fruit in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt.
  4. Sift dry ingredients over fruit and fold them in with a spatula. Then let fruit mixture sit for 20 minutes.
  5. FOR THE CRUST: Place butter and white and brown sugars in a large mixing bowl and cream with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until fluffy. Add ginger and pecans, stirring to combine.
  6. Bake until bars are golden brown and set, about 30–40 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving.
  7. Add dry ingredients to butter-and-sugar mixture one cup at a time. The result should resemble cookie dough.
  8. Pour fruit filling into a deep 4-quart baking dish, and then drop pieces of dough over the top to cover.
  9. Place baking dish in a jelly-roll pan—to catch any filling that may overflow—and bake for 1 hour. Check the cobbler periodically to make sure the crust doesn’t become too brown before the filling is fully cooked. (You may need to turn the oven temperature down to 325°F.) Filling should be bubbly around the edges.
  10. Serve with fresh whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or both!
