Berry Crisp with Maple-Pecan Topping
Last weekend we were invited to a neighborhood gathering at our neighbor's gorgeous horse stables behind the ravine. The theme was "Welcome to Fall". We had hot apple cider and everyone brought a fall treat. We played games, fed the horses carrots, and caught up with our neighbors.
A fun afternoon!
Brennan and I decided to make this yummy sounding cobbler from this month's Vegetarian Times.
The original recipe is a Blackberry Cobbler, but Brennan is not a huge blackberry fan because the seeds get stuck in his teeth. I hear ya.
So we decided to do a mixed berry cobbler. We used (thawed) frozen berries we had on-hand, but you could also use fresh berries.
What I love about this cobbler recipe is that it isn't overly sweet - it's really tart, with a hint of sweetness. It was perfect!
We started by whisking together maple syrup and Balsamic vinegar, then tossing the mixture with our berries.
Then we tossed the berries again with a little sugar, flour and salt and poured it in our sprayed baking dish.
Next we made a topping with flour, maple syrup, rolled oats, chopped pecans, brown sugar and a little oil. We crumbled it with our fingers and then arranged it over the berries.
We baked the cobbler for 35 minutes at 350* until the berries were bubbling and the cobbler topping was light brown.
We took it piping hot to the barn and shared it with our neighbors!
