Apple and Peach cobbler



I received these two cans of peaches as a compliment when we were in the mall the other day. At first I was really not sure what to do with them. I had thought o f giving them away to a friend when S suggested that I should bake something with it. At first I thought of baking an eggless cake with the peaches but then I found this recipe in The book called Delectable desserts of the world. This recipe had some simple ingredients and looked enticing. So I decided to give this a shot. I am glad I did because this dessert, apart from being extremely simple to put together, is very decadent and delicious. The flavours of the peaches and apples  along with the biscuit crust compliment each other very well.



This dessert is made up of thick bubbly layer of juicy sweet fruit covered by a crust. The dough for the crust can either be dropped by spoonfuls or it can be rolled and cut into biscuits. Either way, you end up with beautiful golden brown biscuits that are crisp on the outside, soft and flaky on the inside.
I have taken the shots in a hurry so I did not have the time set up the props. So please excuse the photographs
