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.
Fresh Peach Cobbler
- 6 peaches, peeled and sliced into wedges
- 2 T white sugar
- 2 T packed brown sugar
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1 T lemon juice
- 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
- 3/4 cup flour
- 2 T sugar
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- dash salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 4 T cold butter cut into small pieces
- 2 T boiling water
- 2T sugar combined with 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1. Preheat oven to 400
- 2. In a bowl combine the peaches, both sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and cornstarch
- 3. Spray with PAM either an 8x8 square baking dish or small quiche dishes (4) (above). Divide peaches into the dishes (or dish). Bake for 5 minutes.
- 4. Make the topping while the peaches are cooking by combining the all dry ingredients and mix well, add butter and use a pastry cutter until it resembles medium crumbs. Add boiling water and mix until combined well.
- 5. Remove peaches from oven and drop chunks of dough onto peaches and then sprinkle with a cinnamon and sugar mixture.
- 6. Place on a cookie sheet and bake in oven for 20 minutes until top is golden brown….
- 7. Cool and serve with ice cream if desired.
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!
If you like, be sure to let John know! Maybe he’ll come up with something else for me to try….
