Cobblers are such a great dessert, and depending on where you are from in the U.S. and whose grandmother’s special recipe you ate most as a kid, you may have very different ideas about what exactly a ‘cobbler’ is from someone else.
Generally, though, we can all agree it is a fruit-based dessert with some kind of biscuit or cake-like topping, baked till it’s bubbly and delicious, and served with a healthy heaping of love! Since I’m writing this in the summertime, I have this cobbler filling made up of the classic combo of yellow peach and raspberry. Find the ripest, most in season produce you can however, if peaches and raspberries are not an option for you!
Whenever there is a hot summer day and I feel the smell of fresh raspberries, I think about this dessert. It is so easy to prepare and it is impossible not to love it. The chocolate mousse is soft and smooth and it is enriched by the extraordinary delicate flavor of the raspberries.
The classical mousse may also be considered a caloric bomb as it contains a lot of ingredients like egg yolks and milk. This alternative is a healthier one as it uses ricotta. The Italian specialty should be present in everybody’s diet and it can successfully replace other kind of cheese: it tastes delicious and it also has very few calories. The creamy texture makes it perfect for many desserts.
