Blueberry and Peach Cobbler

This recipe calls for frozen peaches, but it’s even better with fresh peaches from our Peach Duet Gift Box. Add some sliced peaches to a pint of blueberries, roll out your homemade dough for the crust, brush on some egg wash, sprinkle sugar on top, and bake! Your kids will love eating this fruit-filled dessert. For an extra treat, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Summer Fruit Crostata

Don’t let this recipe’s fancy name deter you. Just tell your kids you’re making a fruit pizza and they’ll be instantly hooked! Made with the same sweet fruits featured in the cobbler recipe, this fruit crostata requires a few plums to make the dish even tastier.
