Cook’s Note

PS Posting - Yesterday I decided to invite some friends over to play bridge last evening. I happened to have some leftover blueberries and blackberries from the weekend that I wanted to use up. I made the cobbler recipe (above) using roughly 50:50 of each berry and used about a total of 4-1/2 cups of berries. Everyone agreed the cobbler was delicious! So you’ll find the bluer version below as well, and the crust in the photo below looks much darker than the peach cobbler crust, which is a result of the darker berries.
