OK guys, this is it. If you bake just one cobbler this summer, this is the one.
That's a rather audacious claim, I realize, but this cobbler is just so good. It's a proper cobbler: a biscuit dough enriched with egg to make a light, fluffy topping that really complements the tender fruit beneath.
And ripe, tangy nectarines are also really perfect underneath that fluffy topping. They are already sweet (yes, drastically reduce the amount of sugar this recipe calls for!) and they don't need to be peeled.
Honestly, folks, this recipe just doesn't need much more introduction. I made it on Friday, and after half of it was put away quietly and efficiently at a dinner with friends, it was breakfast for three days following. We just couldn't believe how good it was; it just melded together in better and better flavor and texture over the next few days. My husband and carefully split the very last two bites. We couldn't bear to let a bite go to waste.
