My cousin Donna recently paid me a visit and we planned to spend the day roaming around the city. We woke up in the morning to the sound of rain and thunder outside, and the weather forecast predicted rain for the rest of the day. We were pretty bummed but decided not to despair and spend the day baking something yummy instead.
I went through my manila folder of torn out food magazine pages (Why yes, I do have one of those. I’m old-fashioned, OK?) and picked this recipe from the June 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living out of the stack.
The recipe calls for raspberries but I used half raspberries and half strawberries.
The fruit is topped with squares of shortcut pastry, which calls for butter AND heavy cream.
My squares kind of melted into each other but that was because I didn’t account for the size of the pan when preparing it.
The cobbler turned out quite magnificent – the berries got all mushy and sort of gelatinous, while the topping was crunchy and flaky on top and chewy on the bottom.
