I know that not everyone likes carrot cake so I wanted to have another dessert available for guests. While I did serve watermelon I didn't want to go to the trouble of making a fruit salad. I ended up deciding on this fruit cobbler. Both the peaches and blackberries were on sale too which was a plus. This was easy to make. I got it ready before we sat down to eat and while we were eating popped it in the oven to bake. I served this with vanilla ice cream. Everyone was raving about this. I know my daughter isn't a big fan of warm fruit but she surprisingly ate some and enjoyed it. I think there are too many cobbler-like recipes out there that I haven't made that I probably wouldn't repeat this one again. However, I highly recommend it!
