Strawberry Cobbler

I made a fruit cobbler from Sweet Gratitude by Matthew Rogers and Tiziana Alipo Tamborra. They suggest using a berry combination. I only had strawberries on hand, so that is what I used. Their suggestions of cobbler combinations follows:
apple/strawberry
white peach/raspberry/mango
pear/persimmon/pomegranate
blueberry/strawberry/raspberry/blackberry

The cobbler is one of the easier recipes in the book. The topping is walnuts, date paste, cinnamon, liquid vanilla, and salt. The fruit filling is fruit, lemon, agave, liquid vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.

And it was scrumptious. It made a wonderful breakfast. Rom loved it.

Sweet Gratitude is a textbook on how to make a raw dessert. This is not an entry level book. If you are serious about learning how to make desserts that impress people, or want to go professional, this is the book for you. If you are a newbie, don't buy this because you'll leave with the impression that all raw desserts are complicated. That is not true.

Raw Desserts by Jennifer Cornbleet, or Ani's Raw Food Desserts by Ani Phyo feature much easier desserts. Sweet Gratitude's level of difficulty also speaks to the quality of the desserts.
I give it a 10 out of 10, for people who want to take desserts to the next level. If you don't, you'll wind up leaving it to collect dust on your bookcase.

Love,
Althea

I love this cobbler! I is probably the simplest recipe in the book and it's also in the other book.

Good advice on beginning desserts. The long lists in Sweet Gratitude used to scared me but once I worked up to it making them was a piece of raw cake. :-)
