With it being peach season where we live, my husband has been asking me to make him a peach cobbler for about a week or so. We also had this deliciously ripe mango sitting on our counter, just begging to be eaten. So I decided to get creative and make the best of both worlds come together, and hence my mango peach cobbler was born. It is deliciously sweet with the perfect golden crunchy crust on top. Paired with a little ice-cream and this dish will send you straight to heaven. It's that good.
4 large peaches, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 large mango, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp lavender
1 tablespoon fresh pineapple juice
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 stick cold butter, cut into quarter inch squares
1/4 cup hot water
Mix together 1/4 cup sugar, your peaches, mangos, lavender, pineapple juice, and cornstarch. Bake in large pie dish at 425 for 10 minutes. While that bakes, mix together your flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking soda, and salt. Cut in your butter until a corse meal forms. Slowly add your water until dough is just combined. Drop lumps of dough on top of the fruit mixture. Mixture will expand, so don't worry about being too precise. Bake in oven for 15 more minutes or until the top is nice and golden.
This cobbler screams summer, and your family will be screaming for seconds when you make this.
