So it’s National Peach Cobbler Day (who knew that was a thing?), and instead of sharing a traditional Peach Cobbler recipe with you today in honor of this glorious fruit, I found a delicious recipe with a twist.
With some blackberries and a hint of bourbon thrown in, this is not your average Peach Cobbler recipe. It’s a great recipe for a spring or summer dinner party or barbecue. Or just because you want something sweet. Enjoy!
Blackberry-Peach Cobbler Bars
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon table salt
- 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
- 3 (6-oz.) packages fresh blackberries (about 4 cups)
- 4 cups peeled and sliced fresh firm, ripe peaches
- 3 tablespoons bourbon
- 1 cup roasted glazed pecan pieces
- Preheat oven to 350°. Beat first 2 ingredients and 1 cup granulated sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
- Stir together baking powder, salt, and 3 cups flour; gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Spread three-fourths of batter in a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan; sprinkle with blackberries.
- Stir together remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup flour in a medium bowl; add peaches and bourbon, stirring to coat. Spoon mixture over blackberries.
- Stir pecans into remaining batter; dollop over peach mixture.
- Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until golden and bubbly. Cool completely on a wire rack (about 1 hour). Cut into bars.
