Reviews for Peach 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."
"Easy to put together. Took to a dinner get-together and it was a hit. Will make again."
"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."
