Best blueberry peach cobbler is wonderful. You will enjoy serving this best blueberry peach cobbler to friends and family. Plus, don’t forget the ice cream! I love when it comes out of the oven and your ice cream melts just a bit.
The flavors come together and it makes the cobbler the best texture. The best blueberry peach cobbler is so fun to make. You start with a package of blueberry muffin mix. Drain the blueberries and I also like to add fresh blueberries if I have them. If you don’t have any, it is fine not to add any.
Then you will make the topping. Put the muffin mix in a bowl, and then add the sugar and cinnamon. Then you cut in the butter with a pastry blender. After the butter has been cut in, add pecans or walnuts, if desired.
How do I cut in butter in this Best Blueberry Peach Cobbler?
When a recipe calls for you to “cut in” butter, it means that your pastry needs to be flaky. “Cutting in” means combining the butter into the flour in such a way that little lumps of the raw butter remain whole within the flour mixture. When the dough is baked, these little lumps create separation in the structure of the finished product, which is what gives it that flaky consistency.
Some recipes will specify how big the lumps of butter should be. One might call for “pea-sized” lumps while another may call for the lumps of butter in the flour mixture to resemble crumbs. No matter what, just remember, the flakier you want your pastry, the bigger the lumps of butter need to be. In this recipe for Best Blueberry Peach Cobbler, you aren’t going to want your pastry to be as flaky as you would for a pie crust, so you are going to want your lumps of butter to be smaller like crumbs.
What if I don’t have a pastry blender and I am in the middle of making my Best Blueberry Peach Cobbler?
Here are some alternatives that you can use if you don’t have a pastry blender:
Using two knives, criss-crossed, slowly cut the butter up with the flour mixture in a scissors-like motion
Pressing the butter in with the back of a fork
(The two previous methods require butter cool enough to not blend into the flour, but warm enough to cut easily)
Cutting in butter can also be done very easily in a food processor with the knife blade; in this case, you want cold butter. It usually does not take very many pulses, so monitor the texture after each pulse or two, once you have done four or five pulses
If you have a large holed grater, you can even grate frozen butter, and then simply toss it with the flour
Put your pie filling in a 9″ x 13″ baking pan. Then add the cinnamon, sugar and blueberries into the baking pan and mix well.
Sprinkle the topping mixture over the top of the pie filling mixture and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top turns golden brown.
*Spoiler alert, I like my cobbler to be even more brown, so I place the cobbler under the broiler on low for 2 minutes! Watch it so that it doesn’t burn.
Then don’t forget the cream or the ice cream or whatever it is that you will want to garnish your Best Blueberry Peach Cobber with. I hope you love it!!
