Mixed Berry-Almond Cobbler

In my fridge, I found a mixture of leftover raspberries and blackberries with some rhubarb hiding in the freezer. Although this recipe only calls for the berries, I decided that some rhubarb thrown in with a little extra sugar and cornstarch would be the perfect addition. The almond topping on this dessert is fantastically light, airy, and flavorful. You can also make this recipe with 1kg pitted cherries or even a mixture of cherries and apricots.
