Fresh Plum Cobbler

Is there anything more lovely than the sight of a hot pie cooling on a windowsill?  A warm pie should be standard equipment in any bungalow kitchen.  However, usually I just settle for a pie pan.

This isn’t exactly a pie, either.  It is a plum cobbler made from scratch with local plums from a friend’s neighbor’s yard and topped with lemon shortbread.

Yummy!  The smaller, local plums had a tartness that complimented the zest of the lemon shortbread.  Served warm with vanilla ice cream this was simply excellent.

Ms. Bungalow brought home the cobbler recipe along with the plums a few weeks back, both given by a friend at work.  I surprised her with the finished cobbler a couple days later.  If you want to try the plum cobbler recipe I used, it is available at Food Down Under.

Be careful! It looks like it may fall over… and that would be a real shame. It looks so yummy!

OK, Josh. You’ve got to stop doing that… I’ve gained 5 pounds just looking at that cobbler! Seriously, though, it sounds delicious.

I’ll second your pumpkin love, Sandy. I had my first-of-the-year pumpkin bar with cream cheese frosting over the weekend– yum!
