Tacos may have claimed Tuesdays, but I’m ready to cede Thursday night to pie. Cobbler Night returns at Dolce Bakery (3930 W. 69th Terrace, Prairie Village) this Thursday, June 19, from 6 to 8 p.m.
“People come swap dinner for cobbler. It’s pretty awesome. They’re thinking we could get dinner or we could get cobbler,” owner Erin Brown says.
Tomorrow night, Dolce will have three flavors of cobbler ($4) — peach, blackberry and tart cherry — dished out of pans fresh from the oven. You can buy a whole 9 x 13 tray for $35 (which Brown says feeds about eight people) if you give the bakery two days advance notice.
And you can also have ice cream with your pie. Dolce will top the peach and blackberry with a big scoop ($1.50) of Glace’s Madagascar Vanilla ice cream and the tart cherry with Salted Pretzel ice cream.
“We’ve got vanilla for the purists,” Brown says. “Ooh, but that salted pretzel and tart cherry. It’s sweet and tart and salty. It’s perfect.”
If you’re not a fan of cobbler, Dolce bakes fresh cookies ($1.65) for the night. So all the ingredients are available for an ice cream sandwich, should you want to go that route.
The cobbler (or cookies) come with complimentary coffee and little bottles of water. Dolce will also be selling iced coffee. They added a cold brew system with the help of the Broadway Cafe and Roasting Company earlier this summer. [Broadway was one of our five places to score cold brew.]
Cobbler Night will be held every other Thursday through July 31. On future cobbler nights, Brown expects peach-raspberry to return and is playing around with a Southern version of the blackberry cobbler made with cornmeal in the crust. She suggests checking Facebook to see what they’re working on.
“We’re heading out to The Berry Patch to pick blueberries soon, which just might make its way into some cobblers,” Brown says.
Dolce is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Thursday. They’ll close between 5 and 6 p.m. to bake and then reopen at 6 p.m. for Cobbler Night.[Image via Dolce]
