Blueberry and Peach Skillet Cobbler

The other day I had a craving for a blueberry and peach cobbler which is odd for me considering I’ve never been a fan of mushy fruit. Until a few weeks ago, I had never eaten a natural peach that was not out of a can. (gasp!) When I was a kid, I didn’t like the way fruit looked and thought it was strange that you had to peel the skin off. Well, I had no idea what I was missing because they are truly delightful. I didn’t like cobblers or pies either because I didn’t like “manipulated” fruit. That’s fruit that has been made mushy! Again, I had no idea what I was missing. I still don’t like mushy food but ever since I have made this cobbler and Apple Crisp, I can get past the manipulated fruit thing.

My blueberry and peach cobbler was sensational and one of the best desserts I have made in my cast iron skillet so far. I think I have fallen in love with my mini cast iron skillet It makes the most tempting and decedent desserts in one perfectly sized pan. I received it for a Christmas present and since then I have made some scrumptious desserts which include my Apple Crisp, Peanut Butter Cookie Sundae, and a divine Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae. I only see more yummy desserts in the future for my cast iron skillet and many will include manipulated fruit. 🙂
