August is the month for stone fruits and there is nothing better than when a friend has fruit trees. And since fruit trees generally yield far too much for one family…friends share!
Recently we received a bag of fresh apricots. After we had eaten as much as our tummies could handle the fruits were getting softer. Don’t throw these jewels out, bake something! Anytime you have fruits about to go bad, make a dessert. Cobblers are easy and delicious, and believe it or not, semi-healthy. It is fruit, after all!
We also had some organic blueberries from the farmer’s market. Apricots and blueberries are a great combo, add a few spices and you have warm, sweet, delicious-ness.
Cut the apricots into six pieces each and discard the pits.
In a medium bowl, with a fork, mix together the flour, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Serve with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.
The cobbler can be made several hours ahead of time. You can serve it at room temperature or reheat it gently in the oven.
My daughter suggested using raspberries instead of blueberries...try it!
