Côté Cobbler

Côté family recipe! Not technically a Cobbler, but a name that stuck. It always comes out a bit differently because we pick different fruits, and (I) don’t really measure. It also always comes out delicious. This recipe is straight off my sister’s blog. She’s a photographer and has far superior food photos to mine, so I suggest you swing by.

Because she is the greatest, my sister Chelsea sent me a mini springform pan. Solitary cake adventures ensued, naturally. This is not a recipe for a springform pan per say, but I really wanted to use it so that explains the top picture.

Filling:
3 granny smith apples
2 pears, nectarines, or more apples
1/2 C blueberries (“bluebs”)
1 tsp cornstarch
zest of one lemon
a few tablespoons of sugar depending on the fruit/personal preference

Topping:
1 C brown sugar
1 C flour
1/2 C butter
1 C oats

How-To:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Peel the fruit unless you prefer the skin on
3. Chop fruit into roughly 1 inch pieces
4. In a mixing bowl, combine all the fillings and empty into 8×8″ baking dish…or any similar sized dish.
5. In a food processor, pulse the sugar and flour to combine.
6. Add the butter in in several large pieces and pulse again until pea sized
balls form.
7. Add the oats and pulse QUICKLY only 2-3 times. You want the oats to be
almost all whole!
8. Put the topping onto the fruit bottom in the pie pan, pat down slightly
9. Bake for about 45 minutes, until just golden brown.

Perfection as is, but vanilla ice cream is a fine companion. We like this hot, we like this cold from the fridge – we all really like Côté Cobbler a lot.
