Peachy Keen

12 Aug

So there’s nothing better in my mind than super seasonal fruit. Right now that super seasonal fruit is peaches! My Mom and I went to the farmer’s market when I was in Florida and the peaches were calling to us. My dad is a huge fan of cobblers and we had peaches so naturally I had to make peach cobbler.

In case your wondering… a cobbler was named because the top looked like the uneven cobbles of the street. The way it differs from a crisp is that it is typically topped with a dough that is similar to a biscuit or shortcake rather than a nut/oatmeal/butter mixture. IMG_0730The cool thing about the the following recipe is that if you really aren’t feeling up to making the “cobbler” part, you can just use the refrigerator biscuits or Bisquick mix. Enough Suspense…

Peach Cobbler

serves 3

3 peaches, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon butter

Combine ingredients thoroughly. Put equal amounts into 3 small oven-safe ramekins

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4-1/2 cup cold water

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut butter into small pieces and using your finger tips combine into the dry ingredients. (Using the biscuit method) Add water in small amounts until the dough comes together and feels wet but isn’t runny. Add spoonfuls of the dough on top of the fruit and bake at 425 for 30-35 minutes.

So this recipe can be tweaked by changing out the fruit (use whatever is in season) or like I said earlier, using biscuit shortcuts. I topped mine with vanilla ice cream but whipped cream or creme anglaise would be great too if you’re feeling particularly gourmet.IMG_0728IMG_0729

    This was better than any cobbler I have ever tasted and she whipped it up without a recipe!
