Easy Peach and Nectarine Cobbler

This cobbler tastes heavenly served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream.  It couldn’t be easier to make.

This cobbler tastes so good that you would think it’s much harder to make than it really is.

I especially like to make this cobbler just before I have friends over for dinner then bake it while we’re having dinner so I can serve it right out of the oven (topped with vanilla ice cream of course).

It seems even more “comfort food like” when served warm out of the oven for some reason.

There’s two simple components to this recipe, the filling and the topping.

Peach and Nectarine Cobbler

The filling is made with fresh ripe peaches and nectarines (with the skin still on) mixed with 5 basic pantry ingredients and that’s it.

Then the filling is done.  No need to cook the fruit first before making the cobbler.  The easier the better.

And the topping (or batter) is made with a biscuit-like dough recipe that has a bit more sugar, a little less flour, and a thinner consistency then regular biscuit dough.

One of my favorite things about this cobbler besides all of it, is that the topping has large crystalized sugar on it which adds a nice light crunch to each bite.
