A super easy fruit cobbler recipe with peaches, cherries and berries that takes 20 minutes to make! Brown sugar ice cream is the perfect finish.
Nothing says summer like a fruit cobbler. And ice cream. Obviously our entire summer is topped with ice cream. You’ve seen all the pies and galettes around here, right? And this cobbler! Ice Cream. Our ice cream maker is constantly running and I’ve developed an arsenal of recipes to support our habit.
Read on for the recipes!
The supplies for both of these recipes come from Nugget Markets grocery store in Corte Madera, just north of San Francisco. Pat and I first stopped there on the way to wine country one weekend and were mesmerized by their selection. It was so good I now go out of the way to visit a Nugget Markets if I find myself in the North Bay! Their produce selection is one of the best I’ve encountered, featuring the bounty of local produce that is in season right now. It’s where I found inspiration to create this fruit cobbler packed with peaches, berries and cherries.
Fruit cobbler is everything you love about classic peach cobbler but better. You can use pretty much any variety of fruits you have on hand. The peaches, plums, cherries and blueberries are just a suggestion. The slightly crispy biscuit dough topping takes just a few minutes to make and it’s really a crowd pleaser.
That’s really an understatement.
I make this cobbler all the time as a dish to pass and it’s one of those where I end up printing out the recipe because I get so many requests.
Let me also gush for a few minutes about this brown sugar ice cream that I topped the cobbler with. It’s based on my all time favorite vanilla ice cream recipe that I make almost weekly in the summer. Swapping out the regular sugar for brown sugar and adding a dash of cinnamon is such an amazing upgrade!
The recipe itself is super simple – no thermometer needed, no eggs, no cooking. Just heat it up enough to dissolve the sugar, chill and churn. So, so easy and so, so good. Perfect all summer long.
Oh, and just because Nugget Markets are rocking it with the local produce you find in my cobbler doesn’t mean you can’t find a few tropical fruits thrown in the mix. They also have everything I needed to create one of my favorite gourmet pitaya bowls.
And don’t even get me started on their cheese selection! True story, when I was taking pictures for this post their cheesemonger came up and started asking me questions about what I was doing. I introduced myself as cheese paparazzi, obviously.She was so knowledgeable about all of their cheeses. It’s clear she took pride in how they were selected and even shared stories about some of the cheesemakers she’s visited. She also gave me some great pairing suggestions for wine that I was buying. Such a great resource!
Speaking of pride, I think that’s a theme that ran through all the interactions I have with the staff at Nugget Markets. Everyone from the meat counter guys to the gal stocking beauty products are gracious and full of knowledge about the products they are selling. It makes the shopping experience really fun.
Other Nugget Markets tips – if you want a marinade for your meat, the meat counter will do it for free! Just ask them for a suggestion. If you’re worried about the sustainability of your seafood, just check the labels. The level of sustainability is right there next to the price. You’ll also find lifestyle icons that identify foods by as gluten-free, raw, low-sodium, vegan, etc. And don’t forget to check out their private Nugget Markets label options. Unlike many supermarket chains, their private label features high quality – and often locally-sourced – products.
If you’re looking for a great specialty grocery store in the Bay Area, but one that still has all the staples you need, Nugget Markets has three locations north of San Francisco in Corte Madera, Novato and Tiburon. Sonoma Market and Glen Ellen Village Market in Sonoma County are also part of the Nugget Markets family.
