Summer is starting to wrap up so I really wanted to take advantage of all the strawberries and peaches that are still readily available at the farmer’s market. As much as I love fresh strawberries and fresh peaches, there are days when I get greedy and buy too many. Since I like my fruits firm and not too ripe, I like to use the super ripe ones for fruity desserts. Like this strawberry peach cobbler à la mode.

Because warm fruit cobblers should always come topped with ice cream. A spoonful of sweet and tart fruits, buttery warm biscuits, and sweet melted ice cream — sooo addictive. And so comforting for summer. So today, I’m sharing with you this strawberry peach cobbler à la mode to chase away your Monday blues. And mine too! =)

Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 13×9 inch baking pan with olive oil. Set aside for now.

For the filling, chop peaches and strawberries. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cornstarch, and ground cinnamon until well combined. Add this to the peaches and strawberries and mix until the fruits are well coated.

Pour the filling into the baking pan and bake the strawberries and peaches for about 15 minutes. This will help soften the fruits. Remove the strawberries and peaches from the oven and set aside for now.

For the biscuit topping, whisk the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt together in a large bowl. Add the butter and break the butter into the flour mixture with a fork or pastry cutter until it appears crumb like. Drizzle buttermilk into the batter and mix until combined.

Take the dough and flatten it. Then spread it on top of the strawberry peach filling. The dough doesn’t have to cover all of the filling.

Mix together egg and milk to create an eggwash. Use a pastry brush to brush the eggwash over the dough. This will help the top of the biscuits brown. Sprinkle turbinado sugar on top of the dough.

    Oh wow! This looks so delicious, especially because I LOVE strawberries and peaches. I’ll have to wait until Summer rolls around to try it out though, but once I see beautiful peaches back in the supermarket, I’ll be trying this recipe out! 🙂

    Looks so inviting! I love the photograph of the cut up fresh strawberries and peaches. 🙂 When I was growing up, we had strawberry rhubarb cobbler using the rhubarb from the garden. Fruit and biscuits are a delicious combination. 🙂
