Easy Fruit Cobbler
At last, fresh fruit is ripening all over America, not just in Florida or California. Shortcake, muffins, fruit crisps, pie... there's no end to the ways you can showcase the berries and fruits of summer. And one of our favorites is cobbler, which in this version is fresh fruit baked with a sugared biscuit topping. (Cobbler can also be fresh fruit baked atop or under a crust of cake, but we'll leave that variation for another day.)
Tapioca flour or our favorite fruit thickener, Instant ClearJel, are both good choices for thickening. Either of those, unlike flour or cornstarch, keeps the fruit's juice clear and its flavor true as it cooks and thickens; the resulting color (and flavor) is spectacular.
