The following guest post comes from my friend Laura, who writes a lifestyle and food blog called lb’s good spoon. Let me just say, this gal knows her food and she’s a great mom too–so you’ll get some fun parenting advice and features thrown in amidst delicious dinner ideas.  I know Laura from college but we were never close friends due to being different years in school. Thanks to blogging and Facebook, I feel like I actually know her quite well despite living on other sides of the country! Isn’t it fun to have virtual friends like that? Laura, thank you for sharing your recipe with my readers and for inspiring us all in the kitchen. 
Individual Peach and Blueberry Cobblers
Ingredients You’ll Need:
  • 4 peaches cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 2 dashes ginger
  • 2 dashes cinnamon
  • 2 dashes nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • sugar to sprinkle on top

1.  Heat oven to 400 degrees.

2.  Mix the peaches through blueberries in a bowl.  Gently toss then place into 4 ramikens.  Butter or spray them if you need to- mine didn’t need to be sprayed.

3. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  With a pastry cutter or 2 knives cut the shortening into the dough until its crumbled.  Stir in the milk, recognizing you may need 1-3 tablespoons more so that it comes together.  Spoon topping over each berry cup then sprinkle the tops with sugar.

4. Place in the oven and cook for 18-20 minutes until golden.  Let cool slighly then enjoy while warm

This recipe is perfect for summer.  It’s easy to assemble and goes wonderfully with vanilla ice cream.  Once you’ve made it a couple time you’ll get over the idea of using vegetable shortening, give in to the goodness that it is, and make these over and over again.
