Berry Cobbler: made with love

Can you see the heart shaped biscuit? I hope so, because this baby was made with love. I put my heart in it, literally. 😉

This is a perfect dessert for a special day or any day for that matter. Is winter rough on the fruit selection in your produce aisle, no problem! The frozen section has quite the selection to choose from and believe it or not this baby was made with frozen fruit. Here in Japan strawberries go for about $8 a pack. A pack has six strawberries. Yes, six strawberries! Don’t get me wrong those six strawberries look like the Mercedes of strawberries, if their were such a class, but that’s a little out of my strawberry budget so let’s just say I’m becoming quite fond of frozen fruit.

I was actually quite surprised by the selection of fruit in the frozen section. I thought I was just going to make a strawberry compote with this dish but they had so many fruit blends I thought it would be fun to get creative. I picked up a cherry blend which included of course cherries, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries which made up the fruit compote and I complimented the compote with a gingery sugar biscuit and BAM (in my best Emeril voice) this baby was created. Add one, two, or even three biscuits of any shape. Have fun with it!

I used a 7inch skillet to serve 2, but you can easy double the recipe with a larger skillet.
