Minty Peach Mango Cobbler

I don’t really know the difference between a crisp, crumble, and cobbler, but I know I love them all. Though I love all the cinnamon-y, hearty crisps/crumbles/cobblers I’ve had, I wanted to try something different. This is less sweet and more refreshing than the traditional ones, and I think the mint is a fun addition.

Minty Peach Mango Cobbler

For the filling:

  • 1 tsp dried mint
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 TBSP brown sugar
  • juice of half a small lemon
  • 4 peaches, sliced
  • 1 large mango, cubed

For the topping:

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp table salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • one stick of butter, cut into pieces

Preheat oven to 375.

In a large mixing bowl, combine mint, flour, and the 2 TBS brown sugar. Add the peaches, mango, and lemon juice and toss. Place the mixture into an 8 or 9 inch baking dish or pie plate, pressing down slightly.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, 1/3 cup brown sugar and ginger. Add the butter, mixing with your hands, until no more powder remains, and the topping is nice and crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit mixture.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until topping is golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
