Independence Berry Cobbler


What comes in a close second to BBQ and fireworks on the 4th of July? Dessert of course! No Independence Day shindig is complete without bellies filled with the tastiest food and smiles on everyones faces. That is why there is no better way to end your meal than with the colorful burst of a berry cobbler. This dessert is filled with natures own red and blue berries and all you have to do is add the white with some vanilla ice cream plopped on top of the 'just out of the oven' hot cobbler. Nothing says independence better than American farm gown berries in the colors of our flag, straight from the ground and right into our mouths.

And when the sparklers burn out...there's always leftovers!

If you’re still looking for a dessert to serve on July 4th, consider Peach Berry Cobbler with ice cream, from the July 2008 edition of Cooking Light Magazine. The reddish hue, acquired by the peaches during baking, makes for a patriotic presentation of red, white and blue colors.The turbinado sugar is a healthy addition to the recipe, as it is lower in calories than granulated sugar. It also receives less processing than white sugar.
