The cobbler is an American classic in which fruit is topped with spoonfuls of biscuit dough and then baked, creating a cobblestone effect. Blueberries are often the fruit of choice for this pie-like dessert, but we've added sweet slices of nectarines for a fresh and tasty twist on the classic blueberry cobbler recipe. Served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream, this delightful Blueberry-Nectarine Cobbler is the perfect way to end any summer meal.

For the fruit mixture
For the cobbler
- Preheat oven to 375°F. In a bowl, mix blueberries, nectarines and sugar to combine.
- Pour fruit evenly in the bottom of a 13-by-9-inch greased baking pan.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Using your hands, rub the butter into the flour mixture, squeezing and pinching with your fingertips until the mixture resembles a coarse meal and there are no butter lumps bigger than a pea. Add the sugar and whisk to incorporate.
- Pour ½ cup half-and-half into a small bowl or measuring cup and add the egg. Beat with a fork to mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, and then stir gently to just combine.
- Drop dough by spoonfuls over the fruit mixture. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake for 55 minutes or until golden brown.
