Stovetop Fruit Cobbler
I love all kinds of cobblers and make them often when I'm at home. But my RV does not have an oven and that left me wondering if I could find a way to get the same baked flavor and cobbler texture from my stove top. This was my first attempt at stove-top cobbler and I think it turned out much better than I expected. I used frozen peaches and blueberries for the fruit and Trader Joe's™ Myers Lemon crisps for the cookies. The subtle lemon flavor really adds a nice brightness to the fruit flavors, but I think chocolate or butter cookies would be equally delicious. Almost any combination of fruit and cookies will work nicely.
Favorite fruit (frozen or fresh) chopped into bite sized pieces
sugar or Agave nectar
corn starch, dissolved in a little cold water
cookies (I like Trader Joe's Myers Lemon crisps)
pinch of salt
ice cream, for topping
In a sauce pan over medium-high heat cook fruit and berries with sugar and a pinch of salt until hot and bubbly. In a cup or small bowl mix the cornstarch with some cold water until it is the consistency of milk. Slowly add cornstarch mixture to the fruit a little at a time stirring constantly to thicken into pie filling consistency or until a thickness you like. Place cookies on bottom of bowl, top with fruit mixture and a scoop of ice cream. Enjoy.
Serves: 2 to 6 depending on quantities used
