Pear, Apple and Blueberry Cobbler

Lately, I have found that a lot of my gluten free baking has focused on cookies and squares.  This evening, I wanted a bit of variety and decided to make a fruit cobbler.  This dessert is very easy to make and is a good option when you are hosting a dinner.  You can make it ahead of time and pop it in the over while you are eating dinner.  You can also use a variety of fruits, depending on the season and your preferences. 

Ingredients – Serves 6

Cobbler:

  • 1/4 cup sweet rice flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal flour
  • 1/4 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp chilled butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Fruit:

  • 3 pears, diced and skin removed
  • 1 large apple, diced and skin removed
  • 1/3 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 2 tsp cornstarch

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium bowl, combine sorghum, sweet rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, almond meal, sugar and cinnamon.  Using a fork or pastry cutter, mix in the chilled butter until the mixture resembles the texture of cornmeal.  Add the sour cream and mix with a spoon or spatula.  Hint – you do not want to use an electric mixer or pastry cutter for this part of the mixing as the cobbler will form a batter-like consistency.  The goal is to keep it as crumbly as possible.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch.  Toss the mixture with the fruit until well blended.
  4. In a 9″ greased pie plate, add fruit mixture to the bottom of the plate.  Sprinkle with cobbler.
  5. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes. 
  6. Make whip cream topping – cool your mixing bowl and mixing utensil in the fridge or freezer for approximately 10 – 15 minutes – make sure that the whipping cream remains cool as well until you need to mix it.  Remove items from the fridge, pour whipping cream into mixing bowl and mix for 2 – 3 minutes, until it is light and foamy.  Add honey and cloves and mix another minute. 
  7. When cobbler is finished, remove from oven.  Spoon into bowls and top with whipped cream topping.
