Healthy Living! Taste the secret to our yummy, easy fruit cobbler: vanilla pudding. The fruit in this Easy Fruit Cobbler with Cinnamon is thickened with vanilla pudding.
What You Need
1 pkg. (16 oz.) frozen sliced peaches
1 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar, divided
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1-1/2 cups all-purpose baking mix (We call it Bisquik down here in the South…just sayin’.)
1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
Let’s Make It
1 – Heat oven to 350ºF.
2 – Combine fruit in large microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 min. Meanwhile, mix cinnamon and 1 tsp. sugar until blended; reserve for later use.
3 – Mix dry pudding mix with remaining sugar until blended. Add to fruit mixture along with the water; mix lightly. Spoon into 8-inch square baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
4 – Add milk to baking mix in medium bowl; stir just until moistened. Drop in mounds over fruit mixture; sprinkle with reserved cinnamon mixture.
5 – Bake 35 to 40 min. or until fruit mixture is hot and bubbly and biscuit topping is lightly browned. Serve warm topped with COOL WHIP.
Tip 1 – Substitute: Here’s a great way to use your leftover frozen cranberries from the holidays. Just substitute them for the frozen raspberries in this luscious dessert.
Tip 2 – Nutrition Bonus: The peaches are an excellent source of vitamin C and provide vitamin A in this easy-to-make old-fashioned dessert. Plus at 180 calories per serving, you can still have dessert and eat well.
My Tips: You can use apples and/or blueberries and since it says 9 servings, I’d drop to dough in a tic-tac-toe pattern in the square pan. Also, whip cream andor ice cream on top when served warm.
CLICK ON OVER to My Food and Family for all the nutritional details. This a kid-friendly favorite among the Wolves. Y’all know what that means–the kids of ALL ages like to nom on this. Annie Donaldson whips up a pan for Sean and Cody and just hands them the carton of ice cream and two spoons. They don’t care what fruits she pairs together. She’ll make another pan for herself and baby Sally, which is usually the original–peaches and raspberries. She always keeps frozen sliced fruit on hand. Annie had this to say, “It’s so easy, even if my momma would be all up in arms because I’m not makin’ a proper pie crust from scratch, and I dang sure ain’t peelin’, boilin’, and otherwise preparin’ the fruit. Y’all might think life has settle down just ‘cuz we’re livin’ in a small town but let me tell you, that just ain’t so. I’m puttin’ all the ingredients together so I’m makin’ it from scratch. Besides, my boys like this cobbler just like this recipe tells me to make it and that’s all that matters t’me.” If I’m not mistaken, Sean and Cody are lurking just out of sight ready to request this treat once I leave Annie be. If y’all want to read their story, it starts when they meet in WOLF MOON and continues through other books to be mostly settled in MOON SHOT. WOLF MOON is part of MOONSTRUCK: LIES, wherein you get both ROGUE MOON and WOLF MOON, plus added extra chapters and stuffs like that there. You can click on a title or the cover and magically zoom off to buy any of the books. 😉
What about y’all? Do you like cobbler? What’s your favorite fruit? And the most important question of all, ice cream or whipped cream?!?! 😀
