Yeah, thats right. Cherry Nectarine Cobbler. I have never been a fan of rhubarb, which was supposed to accompany the cherries in this dessert. And I had wanted to go the apple route. However, the granny smiths at the store didnt look so great, unless you bought them in bulk, which I did not care to do. The nectarines were already in my cart for next week’s TWD recipe, so I thought, what the hell? Lets give it a go.
Surprisingly, cherries and nectarines go very well together. This cobbler is easy as can be to whip up. We loved the cobbler part, too. Infact I liked it waaaaay better than the cobbler part of the berry cobbler we did a couple weeks ago. The only ‘issue’ was that the nectarines gave off a lot of juice, I should have added a tad more cornstarch to thicken it up. It didnt really make a difference to us though, I used the syrupy liquid to spoon over vanilla ice cream. Holy Yum!
This is a keeper for us. I love cobbler, we both do, and this one made me feel better about eating it. Whole wheat flour and fruit. Its at least a little healthy, right? 😉
