The last of summer's peaches

Cobbler1Amazingly, last Sunday the farmers market still had peaches and nectarines for sale. If they're still around this coming weekend, it's not too late to get in one more cobbler for the season.

My new favorite recipe is "Berry and Peach Cobbler with Corn Flour Cobbles" from Deborah Madison's book "Seasonal Fruit Desserts from Orchard, Farm and Market" (Clarkson Potter, 2010, $32.50). She spent four years working on the book, and it shows. Her peach cobbler recipe includes a little cornmeal in the dough, which gives it a satisfying crunch. She also adds berries -- blueberries, huckleberries or blackberries -- to the peaches or nectarines, which give the cobbler a deeper color.

It's also very easy to make: no rolling; you simply spoon the batter on top of the peaches before baking. This is a title that needs a place on your cookbook shelf. Buy it at any bookstore or from Madison's website.
