I love, love, love.. did I say love, this passage! It clearly says the He did the work of salvation.. He predestined, He conformed, He called, He justified, and He glorified those of us that have chosen to believe in Him! Whew, does that take the pressure of us or what? I just have to love Him and be obedient to His voice, He did the rest. And did you notice that I said He DID the rest.. all of the words in the above paragraph are past tense- the work is done, there is nothing we can do to earn it.. it is a free gift and all we have to do is accept it.
Since Summer is just around the corner along with all the yummy fruit like peaches and all kinds of berries I chose this recipe for the day.
And now on to the recipe....
Easy, Foolproof, Cobbler
(for any fruit)
Courtesy of 'The Kitchn'
(makes enough for a 9x9 baking dish)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar, plus a bit more for sprinkling
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
fresh berries or fruit (peeled and cut into chunks)
Here I am gonna insert my healthy changes that I made to the recipe for those of you who care.. its yummy either way. :)
First, I cut the whole recipe in half (because I use my little counter top oven, so the dish is small)
So, my 3/4 c. flour was 1/2 c. ww pastry flour, 1/4 c. ap. I added a bit of flax and cinnamon. I cut the sugar since the fruit is so sweet. I used a rounded 1/2 c. brown sugar.I put the peaches in the dish, then covered with a layer of frozen blueberries. Then I sprinkled on a thin layer of coconut and a thin layer of oatmeal (to add fiber!). Then I topped & baked!
There ya have it.. feel free to do it either way.. like I said, both are yummy!
Now back to your regular scheduled programming...
oh, I mean recipe.
Combine the flour and sugar. Add the butter, mixing as you go, until the mixture forms a soft dough. It can be slightly crumbly, but you want it to hold together when you squeeze it.
Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Put the fruit in the dish — you will probably need about 4 cups of berries or chopped fruit. You want to create a thick layer that comes about two inches up the sides.
If the fruit is particularly tart, sprinkle with a light layer of sugar. If the fruit is soft and sweet, you don't need it.
Take the dough by the handful and pat it into disks that are about 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick. Lay them on top of the fruit, continuing with the patties, until it is covered. Bake the cobbler at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes, until the crust is light golden brown. Let cool slightly, then serve with ice cream.
Hope it wasn't confusing with my changes thrown in,
oh, what am I sayin'?
You are a smart woman I am sure you figured it out!
Have a blessed day, Tobi
