Mission to Munch: Independence Day Cobbler
It’s almost the 4th of July, which means planning a cookout menu. So far, it has been a fairly cool summer in the Midwest, but it also hasn’t really felt like summer. Even though it doesn’t feel much like summer, I can’t help but feel summer vibes as I plan my 4th of July Cookout menu. One thing that always makes the menu is fresh fruit cobbler. Usually I like a classic peach cobbler, and nothing says summer more than fresh, sweet peaches. However, since the menu is for the 4th of July, I thought I would share a cobbler recipe that fits in with a patriotic theme. This Independence Day cobbler is really two desserts in one. It features luscious strawberries and plump blueberries cradled in a yummy cheesecake, but wait, that’s not all. The addition of a cobbler batter as the crust results in a crunchy, gooey crust that bubbles up over the fruit, yet still allowing bursts of red, white and blue to pop through. If you’re entertaining for the 4th, it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Enjoy, and if you choose to make it, let us know what you think.
