Pluot Cobbler

Pluots are easily my favorite fruit, so today we’re saying nuts to peach cobbler, and swapping pluots in instead!

Filling:

  • 10 pluots cut into thin slices
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground numeg
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Topping:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup boiling water

Cinnamon Sugar:

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine all the filling ingredients and stir to coat evenly.

An even larger bowl would be easier.

Pour into a 2 quart baking dish and bake for 15 minutes. You may want to put your dish on a cookie sheet/bigger pan in case any juice drips out over the sides.

While the fruit bakes, combine the flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt of the topping in a large bowl and stir together. Blend in the butter with your fingertips or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Stir in the water until just combined – this is enough water it’s not the dry pie crust texture I was sort of picturing.

Set aside, then stir together the cinnamon sugar in a small dish.

Take the baked pluots from the oven and drop spoonfuls of the topping evenly on top. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the unbaked topping.

Bake until golden, 25-30 minutes.

Serve still warm, ideally with vanilla ice cream.

This is an absurd serving. Oh well, it’s already in the bowl now!
