Peach-Blueberry Cobbler Dreamin’

As part of their 25th anniversary summer tour, Dave Matthews Band recently stopped by Atlanta. Inspired by Georgia’s signature fruit, DMB Head Chef Fiona Bohane created an original recipe for a summer treat using sweet peaches and Dreaming Tree Crush wine, aptly named after one of the band’s classic hits.

Serves 6–8 people

 Dreaming Tree Wines - BSA 0816

Ingredients for Filling:

1 pint blueberries

3 lbs fresh peaches, peeled and sliced

1/2 cup light brown sugar

2 Tbsp cornstarch

2 Tbsp white wine

1 pinch salt

Ingredients for Topping:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup sugar, plus 2 Tbsp

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ginger

1 pinch salt

6 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed

2/3 cup kefir, buttermilk or heavy cream, plus 2 Tbsp

1 tsp vanilla extract


Directions for Filling:

1. Place all ingredients in a pot

2. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until mixture comes to a simmer and the liquid becomes clear, 5–10 minutes

3. Turn off heat and carefully transfer to an 8 x 11-inch glass or ceramic pan

Directions for Topping:

1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

2. While filling heats, mix together all dry ingredients—pulse in food processor if available. Add the cubed butter and pulse until incorporated, with no large chunks of butter visible

3. Transfer to a bowl, add 2/3 cup kefir and vanilla and gently stir with a wooden spoon until batter forms

4. Using a spoon or your hands, drop biscuits on top of filling. The topping covers most of the filling, but leave a small space between the biscuits to allow the heat to escape

5. Brush tops of biscuits with reserved kefir and sprinkle with remaining sugar

6. Bake for 40 minutes, until nicely browned and biscuits cooked through

7. Allow to cook for at least 30 minutes

8. Serve with ice cream
