Blueberry and Peach Cobbler

I still prefer crisps to cobblers, but this was good. How can one fail when blueberries and peaches are involved? Make sure you make this when the fresh fruit is at the height of its flavor to achieve the yummiest results. The dessert will be as flavorful or as bland as the fruit you use.

1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cups sliced, peeled fresh peaches
1 cup blueberries

1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted

In a saucepan, combine the first five ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring until thick. Add fruit. Pour into a greased, 2-qt. baking dish. For topping, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir in milk and butter. Spread over fruit mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes or until topping is golden brown and tests done. Let cool until warm and serve warm with ice cream.
