Blueberry Nectarine Cobbler

Blueberry Nectarine Cobbler

Adapted from a recipe by Pastry Chef Claudia Fleming, Gramercy Tavern, New York City

Flaky, buttery biscuits sit over a pool of luscious baked blueberries and nectarines in this Blueberry Nectarine Cobbler. Inspired by a popular dish at NYC’s Gramercy Tavern, our Blueberry Nectarine Cobbler brings a touch of sophistication to a dessert that tastes like home. If you can’t find nectarines, try substituting another stone fruit like peaches or plums.
