Reviews forPeach and Berry Bliss Cobbler
"Made this tonight, pretty much as written. I did add a little cinnamon and nutmeg to the flour mix. I used cooking sherry. I think I will leave out the pecans next time. Delicious cobbler that I plan to make a few more times!"
"Very good. Blueberries and peaches go great together. I omitted the mace, used water instead of sherry or apple juice, and omitted the pecans."
"I've made this recipe seveal times and my family loves it! My husband prefers it without the nuts though. A word of warning--bake it for the full 30 minutes before testing the crust, and test it in several places before judging it done. I've had it come out underdone in some spots a few times."
