The Best Fruits To Make A Cobbler
Want to know the best part about your favorite Pawleys Island restaurant as the season changes to fall – the desserts! From warm apple pie to decadent peach cobbler, the desserts that pair perfectly with a hot cup of coffee can easily be made in your own kitchen. Fine dining in Pawleys Island features the desserts this fall, so try our tips on how to create the best fruit cobbler to welcome in the changing leaves and cool, crisp air.
Mixed Berry Cobbler
A colorful mixture of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries has never looked as tasty as under a flaky layer of hand pressed crust. Many Pawleys Island restaurant menus will be filled with berry cobblers this fall, and served with rich vanilla ice cream. Venture into a new flavor combination by combining blackberries with nectarines or apricots.
Stone Fruit Cobbler
Stone fruits refer to those that have flesh or pulp enclosing a stone, like a peach, plum, or cherry. According to Food&Wine, which hosts articles about a special restaurant in Pawleys Island, says peach is the most popular cobbler flavor. (Secret ingredient tip: add a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice to balance the sugary sweetness)
Skip the traditional apple pie and slice this perfect fall fruit into a savory cobbler. While you may be used to seeing crisp apples in fruit or cobb salads from Pawleys Island restaurants, a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg easily take this fruit into the fall season. Go for a holiday cobbler by mixing apples and cranberries topped with whipped cream and a cinnamon stick.
One of the most unique flavors from a fruit cobbler is the combination of pears and cherries. The secret to baking the perfect pear cobbler is to choose the right variety. Bosc and Anjou pears are best at holding their shape and texture when baking. If you want to mimic your favorite Pawleys Island restaurant dessert be sure to grab the best pears.
Sweet cobblers filled with tart rhubarb may not be your idea of a Pawleys Island restaurant-style dessert, but a mix of strawberries and rhubarb is the perfect combination. The natural sweetness of the strawberries balances the rhubarb’s sour taste.
Some other fruit cobbler recipes worth trying this fall include apricot-almond, banana bread cobbler, or mango raspberry (who says tropical fruits are only for drinks at a Pawleys Island bar?).
The one thing that can make any cobbler better is a scoop of creamy, vanilla ice cream. Fall may not traditionally be the time for cold treats, but we’ll make an exception for smooth ice cream melting over warm cobbler.
