Just Peachy.

Recenty, I have been faced with a plethora of peaches, and believe me, I am not complaining. I love peaches, so I came up with a few recipes for my favorite peachey foods.

I love cobblers. They're sweet and crisp and go super with ice cream. And almost anything can go in them. Here is my recipe for a hot bubbley peach cobbler. The best part is, with apple season around the corner the same recipe can be used for an apple cobbler.

For the Filling:
1 1/2 lbs Peaches
1 c. Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Ginger

For the Topping:
1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 Stick Butter, room temperature
1/2 c Brown Sugar
1/2 c Oatmeal
1 Tbsp Cinnamon

  1. Bring a large part of water to a boil. While that is coming up to temperature, score a small "x" on the bottom of each peach.
  2. Drop in the water for 35-45 seconds, remove and submerge in an ice bath immediatley. Allow the peaches to cool for about 1 minute, then remove the skin by peeling it off, starting at the "x". 
  3. Preheat the oven to 350.
  4. Slice the peaces into 1/8" slices after removing the pit. 
  5. Combine the remaining filling ingrediants in a bowl. Add the peaches and allow them to juice out. Set aside.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine all of the ingrediants. Break the butter into small pieces with your fingers while incorperating all of the other ingreidants. 
  7. Take two tablespoons of the liquid that has formed in the peach bowl and add to the topping. combine thoroughly. 
  8. Pour the apples in a greased 8x8 baking dish. Top with the crumb topping. Cover with foil. 
  9. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, until the topping is golden brown. 
  10. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before seerving.
  11. Enjoy!
Note: The cobbler may ooze over the sides of the pan, so place a cookie sheet below it to catch anything that may drip out.
