Fresh Fruits Cobbler

Fresh Fruits CobblerIt’s official: fall is here. Crisp leaves, cool weather, and warm drinks abound. This fresh fruit cobbler is an excellent way to slip into fall mode. You may want to consider buying your fruit at a local farmer’s market. Not only will you be supporting a local farmer, but you’ll have fresh, seasonal food with less pesticide to boot.

Inspired from Eating Local by Andrews McMeel Publishing.
