Stone Fruit Cobbler

Summer may be ending but she's leaving us with some of her best produce! Stone fruits, peaches, plums, nectarines, etc - are in season and they make the BEST desserts! In this cobbler I use a mix of some of my favorites to create a simple fruit based dessert that isn't loaded with sugar! A bit of vanilla extract helps the fruits' flavor shine and those biscuits are perfect for soaking up all the juices! Top with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
