Fresh Peach Cobbler



Fresh Peach Cobbler | Cooking on the Front Burner #peaches

This recipe is possible by a special request from the DIY Guy.  For the past few weeks Trader Joe's has had the best peaches - they are $5.99 in a box and theeeee most flavorful and perfect peaches I've seen in a quite awhile.  No bruises or blemishes and just the right amount of ripeness - we have had about 3 boxes between the two of us so far!

One night John suggested making a cobbler.  I was game even though it would be a first for me so I did a bit of cookbook research, made some adjustments and came up with a recipe that seemed pretty easy.  I also knew I wanted them to be in individual dishes and these quiche dishes worked well.  The cobbler isn't overly sweet and the crumb topping cooked up perfect.... one of my additions was quick oats.

You might like them 'naked' but we liked ours topped with vanilla ice cream and if I was really ambitious, I would have made my own with my new ice cream maker.  Maybe next time!


I loved how the ice cream melted a bit and seeped into the cervices of the cobbler - YUM!

  8. Hi, Deb. Like Lizzy, I found you from the Grow Your Blog party.

    My mom just gave me a box of peaches yesterday. I love the idea of making individual cobblers. My kids love eating out of the ramekins I have.

  14. Oh gawd this looks good, Deb! I made a cherry cobbler yesterday. The recipe will be on my blog but it wasn't good. I mean, I know it would have been good because the batter was delicious but my cast iron skillet needs to be seasoned. I found out the hard way. My food tasted like bad cast iron skillet. LOL.

    Pinning and sharing on FB, Twitter and G+! Have a great week!
